I’m interested


Leeds, UK

Job description

We’re broadening our horizons – are you?

It’s an exciting time to be involved with Technology at William Hill. We’re a global betting and gaming company, growing into new markets all the time. We wouldn’t be able to do this without a talented technology team – and that’s where you come in. There’s a lot going on #behindthebet. 

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

Working as part of the William Hill US Product Development team and driving our exciting US business and technology expansion with potential future opportunities in the US you’ll own the quality vision and strategy for the local team, acting as quality champion to ensure the dev team members will be working together towards a better-quality product. You’ll be a hands-on engineer in the team delivering automation with a focus on assuring the quality of what’s being built.

Here, you’ll define test approaches with the team as part of new feature development so that functional and non-functional requirements are validated during development. You will own and improve any existing QA assets that add value, refactoring them to bring further improvements or replacing them if there are better options available. You’ll also provide automated reports for test execution, detailing success/failure rates and coverage percentages

Working in a constantly changing work environment we are fully dedicated to automating as much as possible with a focus on where the value is. Whilst there is a strong bias towards automation, you will also perform manual and exploratory testing if and when required as part of product development, to understand the product in more details and find defects.

As a QA Automation Engineer you’ll contribute heavily to the QA community of practice and inspire the team to continuously improve. Providing transparency on QA activities within your team you’ll encourage collaboration across the wider team.

Skills Needed

You’ll have a strong background in software development, with scripting skills in either Java or JavaScript. You’ll be comfortable with non-functional testing experience using tools such as Gatling and will have experience implementing TDD and BDD successfully within software development teams. You’ll also have experience with effective CI/CD in an agile software development environment as well as experience in / knowledge of Agile software product delivery and / or continuous improvement mindset.

What We Offer

We take the safety and wellbeing of our employees seriously, especially at this challenging time. We have put in place robust Covid19 measures and are supporting our new employees with a smooth remote onboarding and training programme to make you feel welcome and part of our team.

We offer a balanced and flexible approach to office and home working - now and for the long-term future.

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’s also five universities right on our doorstep. And away from work, we’re in the heart of 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 Headingly.
