A few months ago we started out with the vision of building a next generation sports betting platform focused on performance, reliability, modularity and automation. We believe that our experience paired with today’s technologies, great talent and the agility of a startup environment will enable us to deliver a best-in-class product that meets the demands of the market of tomorrow.

Our Offer Team is now on the lookout for an experienced Software Engineer who wants to join our distributed team and help us execute our vision.

The Team

The Offer Team is responsible for ensuring that the users of our Sportsbook platform are presented with relevant and fairly priced betting opportunities year-round and around the clock. The main deliverable of the team is a superpowered stream of betting opportunities, which is the result of:

  • Aggregating information from third-party data sources

  • Implementing in-house statistical models to derive exotic betting opportunities from more simple ones

  • Implementing in-house pricing models to assist in offering ideal prices: attractive for end-users while also commercially viable for bookmakers

  • Determining the suitability of different types of betting opportunities in different jurisdictions and for different brands

The nature of the data handled by the team requires us to obey strict SLAs around the propagation times for any kind of update. Guaranteeing low latency is of utmost importance in order to prevent shrewd players taking advantage of stale data (e.g. odds taking too long to be updated after a goal is scored in a football match).

You will be working on developing and improving our core services primarily in Scala and also have a voice in architectural discussions.

Remote Work

We are hiring for talent, not for a specific location. You will find that members of our team are distributed all over Europe. Being a distributed team enables us to hire only the best, without being restricted to the talent pool available at a specific geographic location. However, to facilitate team communication and collaboration we currently require you to be located in a European time zone (between UTC-1 and UTC+3). You must also be able to travel to other European locations a few times a year for on-site meetings and workshops.

Compensation

The budgeted compensation range for this role is €55k-75k annually, depending on your background and experience. As an independent contractor you will be responsible for paying any taxes or applicable fees in your country of residence (unless you are based in Malta, in which case you will be employed). In addition to that, we offer a number of perks to each of our team members as we truly believe in a healthy work-life balance and continuous learning.

Requirements

  • BS degree in Computer Science or similar technical field

  • 2+ years of professional software development experience using Scala or a pure functional programming language

  • Interest and ability to keep yourself up to date and learn new languages, frameworks and technologies as required

  • Deep understanding of functional programming

  • Good knowledge of concurrent programming, as well as distributed systems

  • Good knowledge of microservice architecture, message-based communication and stream processing

  • Interest in test automation, cloud and containerization technologies, code instrumentation and CI/CD pipelines

  • Ability to work autonomously in a fully distributed team

  • Good communication skills in verbal and written English
