Lead Java Developer - Sports

I’m interested


Gibraltar - Waterport Place

Contract type


Job description

From coding to coaching… development’s in your blood.

We wouldn’t be at the cutting-edge of online sports gambling without a talented technology team. There’s a lot going on #behindthebet. 


We are looking for a Lead Dev. As well as being responsible for all aspects of the development life cycle, driving improvement in quality code, defects, security and resilience, we also want you to take responsibility for the development and drive of some of our valued employees.


Day, to day, your responsibilities will be to run planning & pre-planning sessions with PO, BA and Architects, translating non-technical and technical requirements to appropriate audiences. We’d also like you to take responsibility for the integrity of the software, ensuring technical debt is managed effectively (avoid creating it & remove it whenever there's opportunity) and making sure that we are working to & feeding into development standards & best practices at all times.


As Lead Dev we need you will need to have experience in full stack development with Java (7, 8) and technologies such as Sprint Boot, Spring Framework, Akka, Active MQ, Kafka, Oracle, Riak, Casandra and Scala. As a leader of our people we want to know they are in good hands, so proven experience in a leadership role is also important. Agile delivery, automated testing and experience in Dev Ops activities are also things we hold in high regard.


Our team is approachable, committed and most of all not afraid to work outside of their comfort zone, so if you think you’ll fit it we want to hear from you.
