Tech at William Hill
Nothing stays the same here for long, but we like to think of that as a good thing. Adapting to market and industry changes becomes the norm here. We’re using agile principles to develop a culture where we champion autonomy, creativity and originality so that we can keep growing. We work with coaches and in specific communities of practice so it’s a mindset here, not just something we like to talk about. So we get feedback at every step of a product journey, developing the best result. And we want to see that you’ll be up for the challenge and ready to face change.
You'll find wherever you join us in Tech, there's innovation and creativity at every corner - we take our culture seriously and you’re given the chance to really prove yourself and realise your potential.
If you’re into Java, this is the place for you. We use a modern tech stack – we’re predominantly a Java house but we love exploring other languages and methodologies too. Kafka, Cassandra, Docker, Java 8 and our main tech focus is on micro services. We’re moving away from our own cloud services to fully AWS-led cloud capabilities. And our regular hackathons give everyone the chance to contribute, collaborate and share ideas - even sometimes creating proof of concepts to see if ideas are worth pursing and turning into products.
We’ve always got our eyes on the customer so making sure our tech is always on, and always fast, easy and personalised is at the top of our agenda. We train our devs up to the highest level so they’ve got everything they need to make sure they’re delivering the best experience and content to our customers.
We know our engineers can only do when they’ve got a great team behind them – wherever in the business you choose to join us, you’ll get a great exposure to all elements of our tech offering, all over the world. We all work on the same side and so we all know how important all the work is of each and every one of us.
Most important to us, is your career development, making sure you’ve got opportunity to grow and you could have the chance for cross team or upwards movement to get even more exposure across our business. And when it comes to how we work – each team is different in the way it serves our customers. We're agile, and we make sure the way we work allows you to do the best possible job and gives a good work and home life balance.
We give everyone what they need to be their best self. Tools to do their job right, workplaces to be proud of, and a benefits package that delivers, both in and out of work. And speaking of out of work, we’re a pretty sociable bunch, with regular team lunches and drinks and of course a well-loved, free-to-use coffee machine.
We’re building powerful, autonomous teams. And our Trading tech team work closely with, as you’d imagine, our Traders – developing our Trading Automation and Distribution Platforms so we’ve got a ton of data right where we need it, making sure our Trading team have exactly what they need for their customers.
Our developers have got a laser focus on delivering for our customers. The work we do makes a difference to all our shops, colleagues and customers. Joining us in this team means you can walk past one of our shops, and see your work right there – there’s no better feeling than ‘I did that’. We’re working on redeveloping our tills, the next generation of payments and a whole host of other stuff that you can get stuck into.
We're currently recruiting Developers in London, Leeds, Gibraltar and Krakow, so if we're just around the corner or you're open to relocation we'd love to speak to you.
