Job description

At Sky Betting and Gaming we don't have team Teams we have Tribes. Each Tribe is made up of small, agile and autonomous squads who work collaboratively with a shared purpose. So whether you join our Bet Tribe, Early Careers Tribe or anything in between, you will work with a group of people with raw energy, natural talent, and the kind of spirit that helps us think big, act bold, and change the game. It all means that we've created the kind of workplace that wins awards such as a place on the prestigious list of Sunday Times 100 Best Companies to Work For.

We have grown to become one of the UK's leading online betting and gaming companies. A business driven by bleeding edge technology, that brings the excitement of sports betting, casino games, poker and bingo to over 200,000 customers a day and growing!

It's a workplace like no other, with a mission to make Betting and Gaming better. And we want you to be part of it.

If you have the right skills and experience, DevOps at SB&G is where we will test it all. We bridge Delivery and Service Operations. We sit with the devs, but we are on-call for the services. We work with the Platform team and 3rd parties.

If you join us, you'll:

* Be on-call sometimes 24x7 for the main sites and applications
* Support internal development, test environments and help the devs
* Own the release of internal code and push out config changes
* Help automate things and bring older systems and processes forward
* Be a guardian of code quality, helping the devs to make not just good features, but good systems
* Set up monitoring for everything in sight - if it moves, graph it
* Be a point of contact into Operations for various teams

We're looking for a developer with sys-admin war stories, or a sys-admin who can get into the code up to their elbows. Mainly you need to know your stuff.

Data management - SQL, NoSQL, size, performance - these are mere details; you can make the data dance and the engine hum.

Code - you can branch, code, test, (code, test, code, test), commit and deploy across a complex estate on just one cup of coffee.

Scaling - you can take a server's temperature, read a load-balancer, you know when to throw tin at it and when to go back to the code.

Automation - you understand the quandary of Chef vs Puppet, and you've had to choose; you know Jenkins' little foibles; your bash skills are strong.

Source - you have a favourite source-control system, a least favourite and the one you love to hate, but mainly you can handle the codebase no matter the size.

Systems - you know your Linux, know your sar from your iostat, you can nurse a sick server back to health in the wee small hours and find out how to make a given application fly

Experience - whether you've been there and done that or are relatively junior, you've learned from every twist and turn and never tire of new things. We will consider junior, senior and in-betweeners.

Systems we use

We want you to help manage the LAMP stack but there's other things too - Mongo, Redis and Memcached, RabbitMQ, Tomcat. There's a lot of internally-written systems.

We write our code in PHP and Javascript, making heavy use of NodeJS. There's the usual mixture of bash, a little Python, some Ruby. We use TrafficScript. Source control is Git.

We have OpenBet systems for the gaming side. We use Rundeck, Chef, Graphite, Opsview, Splunk, Hadoop, TeaLeaf, Riverbed Stingrays.

We're a RHEL/CentOS house.

As a valued employee, you will receive free Sky HD and Broadband, as much free Yorkshire tea as you can drink (we are in God's country after all), or the stronger stuff if you're more of a coffee connoisseur. A digital private healthcare scheme along with Herman Miller chairs to ensure your derriere is as comfortable as possible whilst you're innovating and a pension scheme that will send you jet setting off into retirement. All this in a flexible working environment with some of the best minds in the industry help make Sky Betting and Gaming a really great place to work (if we don't say so ourselves). So come join us, one sugar or two?
