Company Updates

  • We are pleased to announce a multi-million pound support package for our employee's in response to CoVid-19. In times of uncertainty it is essential that we reassure our people of the commitment we have to them and the wider community. They have been instrumental in our success and will continue to be so throughout these troubling times and beyond, when normality will inevitably be restored.

  • “I completely underestimated the size of the operation and the scale of the technical platform…..But the biggest shock was how laid back the working culture is. You’d expect such a big company to be quite corporate and strict. But it isn’t. It’s very relaxed” Two of our Graduates interviewed with Milkround to give a better understanding of what life is like as one of our Technology Graduates.

    I worked at Bet365 full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I worked in the Manchester office for the Sports Development team and thoroughly enjoyed my experience. You'll be working with a very talented group of people on interesting projects.

    The management is very supportive and understanding. All the team leaders that I worked with were absolutely great - they made me feel like a valued member of the team. The majority of the team leaders were also past developers at bet365 - this was useful as they already had an appreciation on some of the problems that the developers could face.

    The tech lead is also a great guy - full of experience and knowledge, and always willing to share it with the wider team.

    The senior developers here are amongst some of the best developers I've worked with in my career so far. They're approachable and always willing to help. They do a great job in ensuring the right solutions are reached.

    We got free coffee and tea.

    Free pizza on Fridays (once a month).

    Regular team social events.

    Opportunity to work in an agile environment on an impressive scale.

    Cons

    No significant cons from my experience. Left the company to shorten my commute to work.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Bet365.

    Interview

    Simple interview process made very easy by Bet365 recruiter. I had a pleasant and informal phone conversation with a recruiter who helped to discern which team I would be best to apply for. After this I had a phone interview with a team manager, again relatively informal. The final part of the interview process was a virtual face-to-face with two people. This was much like the phone interview but involved some technical questions also.
