Job description

About us

 

We make a huge investment in everyone, offering great career development opportunities. Our people are at the heart of everything we do and we offer a fast-paced environment where we have fun, celebrate success and give you all the tools you’ll need to be your best self. It’s not just our colleagues we look after – we’ve got a responsibility to our customers too and we work hard on our ambition that nobody is harmed by gambling.

 

Your role in the team 

You'll join an expert tooling team who support global development teams who are agile, customer focused and obsessed with creating, releasing and maintaining fantastic products for our customers. Due to our international expansion, you'll get involved in integrating Jira and confluence tools into our developers' end to end toolchain, helping them to work more collaboratively and effectively.

You'll assist teams in using the Atlassian suite through training, answering questions and evaluating new plugins and owning the end to end delivery of new solutions for your customers.  You'll always be on the lookout for ways to work smarter, not harder, through automating processes and workflows.

We embrace new technology and ways of working, so if you'd like to make your mark on this role with new ideas, and love working in a team, you'll fit right in.  

Skills needed:     

Continuous improvement is part of your DNA and you're a self-starter with a passion for technology. You also enjoy helping people achieve their aims through solutions you've created on Jira, Confluence and Jira helpdesk.

You'll be able to demonstrate experience of the end-to-end development and support of cutting-edge solutions across a range of Atlassian products. You'll be adept as gathering requirements and creating user stories. You'll need to be confident using Groovy and Java, and experience of using Node.js would be a big plus too. It would be beneficial if you're able to highlight integrations you've created via APIs to other tools to create a seamless experience for your customers.

 

What we offer

 

We’ll welcome you on-board with 25 days holiday (not to mention 8 bank holidays and an extra day for your birthday), a rewarding bonus scheme, healthcare, an attractive pension package, life assurance, healthy gym discounts and a flexible benefits scheme. Plus, our season ticket loan and handy Metro Card loan will save you money getting to work and getting around town. And if you see the journey to work as part of your fitness regime, you’ll just love our Cycle to Work scheme.

 

William Hill in Leeds

 

Right in the middle of the creative heart of the UK sit both of our Leeds offices. Leeds itself is a buzzy, busy place to work and live.  A hub for tech, digital and gaming companies – there are also five universities right on our doorstep. And away from work, we’re close to the Yorkshire Dales and of course have got a competitive sports scene with Leeds United and Yorkshire Cricket and Rugby just up the road in Headingley.
