The Role... 

At Paddy Power Betfair, we're building the most advanced betting platform in the world. Our developers work on some of the biggest technical challenges in the gambling and financial industries. They are responsible for the software that handles more than 5 billion requests per day and manages hundreds of millions of pounds of our customer's money – and the demand on our services is increasing day-by-day.

We believe that diversity of experience and background can help us achieve our company goals and provide a better work environment for our employees as well as a better product for our customers. If you have the desire to shape our culture and influence the technical direction of our business, we would recommend that you apply.

  • Design and develop highly available, resilient, and distributed backend services in Java and other cutting-edge technologies in an agile environment
  • Measure the performance and availability of our tech stack – using this data to track inefficiencies and improve our software continuously
  • Understand our customers' behaviours and use cases to offer them the best possible experience through the software you deliver
  • Evangelise code quality and good practices, continuous delivery, and automation
  • Collaborate closely with other developers and contribute to the software development process end to end
  • Take control of your personal growth within a supportive environment 


What we need from you...

  • Have software development experience or training in Java or other general-purpose programming languages
  • A positive attitude and willingness to learn from more experienced developers
  • Show curiosity to understand why we do things the way we do
  • Passionate about technology and care about code quality and best practices
  • Keen to contribute towards the vision of our next gen platform
  • Love collaborating with other developers, happy to do peer programming
