    Image Optimisation | bet365 Tech Blog

    Imagine the difference a fast page load makes to someone's first impression of an application. If a user is sat watching a spinner waiting for an application to load it makes for a very poor experience. It's a potential outcome that makes us all at bet365 very unhappy indeed.

Bet365 – Why Work For Us?


undefined

Founded in 2000 in North Staffordshire, we are the world's largest online sports betting company with over 18 million customers worldwide. We employ more than 3,000 people and are one of the largest private companies in the UK.

Through the vision and determination of bet365's founder, Denise Coates CBE, the business has grown and evolved rapidly, focusing on the following key areas.

undefinedInnovation continues to be the lifeblood of our business. Our team of developers work in-house to provide the technological advances that enable us to keep ahead of the competition.

For instance, bet365 led the way in TV advertising by being the first UK company to display live prices during half-time breaks. We provide a market leading In-Play product, offering more markets on more sports than anyone else, ranging from Soccer and Tennis to Beach Volleyball.

Above all, we believe that giving our staff the freedom to innovate is key to our success.

undefinedFrom a marketing perspective, bet365 is an instantly recognisable and trusted brand, both in the UK and across the rest of the world.

In addition to our cutting-edge half-time adverts, we have also invested heavily in promoting our Bingo and Casino products.

undefinedAnother aspect of our continued success is the focus on our customers.

We pride ourselves on providing first class customer service wherever they are in the world. We employ an excellent Customer Service team to assist in all of the 18 languages that we offer.

undefinedIn the eGaming Review's Annual Power 50 for 2016, bet365 secured top spot for the seventh year running.

At the 2016 eGaming Review Awards, bet365 won In-Play Sports Operator of the Year and Sports Betting Operator of the Year for the fifth time in six years.

    International Content Advisor - German Translator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Stoke-on-Trent, England
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Bet365 (Stoke-on-Trent, England).

    Interview

    First I applied, then they wanted to invite me to a telephone interview but I told them, I am deaf so that would be a bit difficult. So they said they would look into options and in the meanwhile they gave me a translation test for which completion I had 48 hours. After I submitted the test they skipped the telephone interview stage and invited me to a personal interview straightaway. The interview was about 2 hours which included 1 hour of questions, half an hour of another translation test and then I could chat to the two other German translators for half an hour. The interview was on Tuesday last week and they said they would contact me ASAP but hopefully next (i.e. this) week.
