Job description

There aren’t many jobs where reaching breaking point is a good thing – but that’s just what we’d like you to do.

As a Principle Software Developer In Test you’ll be joining the Quality Assurance and Test function of our Technology team. You’ll develop high-quality test cases to ensure adequate testing is performed on the rapid development of software within a product channel. The code you’ll design and test cases you’ll execute will continue to make us one of the most trusted brands in the industry.  Behind the bet, you’ll join a team of people releasing cutting edge, fully functional software to customers globally. Our agile environment welcomes your drive to improve. 

About us
With over 16,000 people worldwide, 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 use various technologies to develop high-quality automation so it’s essential you have experience in this discipline.  You’ll write acceptance criteria alongside our talented team of Developers, BAs and Product Owners, collaborating on technical solutions and communicating your goals and results. You'll own the set up and management of data as well as the execution of tests, functionally and through automated test suites. Your people coaching and mentoring skills will also be strong to continuously develop the team.

Our team goal is to display continuous improvement, and you'll play a big part in making this happen.

Skills needed
You’ll have a background of developing automation test frameworks using Java and expertise in API testing.  Experience of working in an agile environment would also be advantageous.

If you’ve got AWS Cloud experience or knowledge of testing real times messaging systems that would be great, but if not we can help you learn.

As a Principal within the team, you will need to be comfortable dealing with various key personnel across our business, help with defining strategy as well as exploring the use of new technology and frameworks within the industry.

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, healthy gym discounts and a staff 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’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.
