Part of the Betfair Group (2007 – 2016)
Our story begins in the summer of 2007 when Betfair Romania Development was founded in Cluj-Napoca, Romania, as a local business office of the Betfair Group. The first teams of technology experts powered the Betfair brand and by 2013, we already ensured a full development lifecycle in house.
Part of the Paddy Power Betfair (PPB) Group (2016-2020)
In early 2016, two of the fastest-growing online betting and gaming operators in the world, Betfair and Paddy Power merged, forming the Paddy Power Betfair Group. For the existing Cluj office, this involved a change in the operating model to fit the workstreams into a larger business context. New teams were set in place, new career opportunities were shaped, new exciting projects came our way. Betfair Romania Development shortly became PPB’s Center of Excellence in Gaming, Data and Customer Technology, with a new and unique business function called Sports Operations added to the office later on in 2017.
Part of the Flutter Entertainment Group (2020 – present)
By mid-2019, following the later acquisition of The Stars Group, Paddy Power Betfair became Flutter Entertainment Plc – the holding company for a unique portfolio of global brands in sports betting, gaming and entertainment.
Depending on the jurisdiction they operate in, the brands are grouped into 4 major divisions: Flutter UK&I, Flutter International, FanDuel (US) and Sportsbet (AUS).
This opened unique growth opportunities for the Cluj office, as besides Betfair and Paddy Power, new brands were added to the location, such as FanDuel, Sportsbet and PokerStars.
In 2022, 15 years after it was founded, Betfair Romania Development has grown to become the only Flutter Entertainment office in the world that has representation from all four divisions of its parent-company.
Besides Betfair and Paddy Power, new global brands are being powered from Cluj-Napoca: FanDuel, PokerStars, Sportsbet and Sky Betting and Gaming.
As a collective of over 1,500 people and part of a business at this scale, we love to challenge norms, explore ideas, champion our customers and set the pace in our industry. Our efforts are streamlined to deliver exciting, immersive and safe experiences to over 18 million customers worldwide.
From software development to head office functions, there is always a range of fully flexible opportunities at Betfair Romania Development. At the beginning of 2022, despite the early stage of the pre-pandemic world and while still navigating through uncertainty, we announced an ambitious plan of hitting a milestone of 1,600 employees by the end of 2023.
We are part of Flutter Entertainment Plc, a global sports betting, gaming, and entertainment provider for over 18 million customers worldwide.
