PRODUCT & TECHNOLOGY
SCALE UP YOUR AMBITION
Create a buzz. Disrupt the norm. And take an industry by storm.
We’re reinventing the rules of our industry. How? By designing and engineering new products and technology that make gaming entertainment a reality for millions.
And when we go, we go big. Like Google and eBay, we’re members of the API Billionaires Club. We process 135 million transactions every day and monitor 100,000 data points a second.
Our environment is agile, one where you can explore your passion for technology. Development or testing, product or design, IT infrastructure or security, whatever your field of interest, you’ll have the chance to push boundaries.
We’re always questioning, always inventing, always developing – both ourselves and our technology. After all, why do things the way they’ve always been done, if you can do them better?
We’re on the cutting edge when it comes to delivery. Agile practices like Scrum and Kanban are the norm here.
As you’d expect, we provide software and websites for both mobile (iOS and Android) and desktop (all major browsers). What’s more, our offerings are supported by the same software development practices deployed in private clouds that run on the latest virtualization tools.
We’re constantly asking: ‘How can we make our products faster and more reliable for our customers?’ If you have a killer idea here, you’ll get to see it through.
Working with the latest tools, and surrounded by hundreds of like-minded people, you’ll have the chance to tackle tech challenges and learn cutting-edge skills.
Ready for something new? Game on.
Our Data team manages 150+ TBs of data (which is growing daily). This enables our analytics teams to understand business performance across products, channels and brands. Our big data solutions blow the competition out of the water.
Working closely with the Marketing, Trading and Commercial Analytics teams, we ensure that the architecture, design and delivery of our data solutions are all first-rate. We also work closely with the Strategy & Analysis team to ensure a coherent and consistent end-state architecture across the Group.
With a large design team spread across multiple locations, we create all of the apps and websites for our brands in-house. We have UX & UI Designers, Researchers and Multi-Variant Testers who all work closely together – and with Developers and other stakeholders too – to help create the best experiences possible for our customers.
We’re constantly asking: ‘How can we make our products easier to use and more attractive to our customers?’ We also never stop testing, evaluating and improving our existing products to stay ahead of the competition.
We have a proud history of creating new products that take the betting industry by the storm. Like Cash Out, the first accumulator bet to allow you to lock in a guaranteed profit or cut your losses before the end of every match. Or our Exchange platform, which let customers set their own odds for the first time.
To make new ideas like these happen takes a passion for giving customers what they want, an encyclopaedic knowledge of how our business and systems work, and a plan that’s clearly communicated to everyone.
Along with creating bold new products, you’ll have the chance to go exploring in all sorts of directions, as you work closely with our Commercial, Operational, Regulatory and Technology teams to define and deliver the new.
Delivering strategy for a global company that keeps on rewriting the online gaming rulebook is a challenge. From real-time trading platforms to innovative online betting exchanges, we create bespoke technology that drives the industry.
Our Strategy and Leadership teams work across Paddy Power Betfair to provide strategic thinking around the future of technologies within our business. Assessing how we’re going to build new products and technology services, how they’ll fit into our overall architecture and what our roadmap for the future looks like is intense and rewarding all at once.
As part of a global, 24/7 business, any time our systems go down, people notice. We have to react to problems, fast. Which is why we’ve deployed a new private cloud platform for our customer-facing systems. And why we have an in-house team of Infrastructure professionals to back it up.
We supply everything from the datacenter cabling to the core infrastructure. Understanding all the component parts not only makes us fast and flexible, but it helps us to control and create ingenious solutions on a daily basis.
The transactions our customers make across the world can be measured in billions of Euros. We’re the team that helps protect our customers and our business from cyber crime.
Cyber Security in Paddy Power Betfair aims to protect the brand & reputation of Paddy Power Betfair through the implementation of a risk based approach to information and cyber security that allows the business to succeed without sacrificing or impacting our most critical assets.
