Thank you for registering your interest in our Technology Community
The people at Sportsbet are a talented, curious, fun and passionate group. We always say we want our employees to enjoy themselves at work, and while keeping things light–hearted and celebrating milestones and moments that matter is part of that, it’s just as important that everyone feels valued for their contributions – which we make sure of. Our tech team is a great example of the friendly, hard–working company spirit we’re proud of. We wanted to hear more about what’s so good about daily life at Sportsbet straight from the horse’s mouths (so to speak), so we asked some of our techies to share their thoughts. Here’s what they had to say!
UX Design Manager
Sportsbet has the kind of culture where it's okay to give it a go and not always hit the mark, and people will give you a high five for trying something new. This encouragement to give it a crack has had a huge impact on my own development and professional growth; it’s great working somewhere that values rewarding you for hard work.
I love that what I’m doing at Sportbet is bringing excitement to life for customers, not only by ensuring their every interaction with us is fast and seamless, but also by enabling a unique tailored experience for everyone.
Technical Product Owner - Data Platforms
Over the two decades I have been with Sportsbet and its subsidiary companies, I have had amazing opportunities to explore different technologies and delivery approaches. My favorite projects are those that empower others to do their work with finesse & ease. Implementing Data warehouse solutions, Data marts and Self-Service Reporting applications like Qlikview & PowerBI, are both challenging and uplifting, as these kinds of projects impact the quality of many peoples’ output and experience.
I’ve worked on some great projects here. A couple of standouts are firstly, the Amplifying Self Service Reporting for our stakeholders and executives which taught me programming languages like Python, and how to use the reporting tools like Power BI. I also worked on a data platforms initiative for CDW data modernisation, driving us to an AWS tech stack (Azure databricks, Pyspark etc.).
We are given goodies and memberships and other perks, but for me, the best thing about working here is actually just the fact I get to work for such a well-renowned brand.
Head of Delivery, Core Data Applications
Sportsbet really supports their staff with benefits that aren’t just material. There is a very flexible work culture, five weeks annual leave, one of the best parental leave policies I have seen, covering things like foster leave and IVF leave, as well as a new cultural leave swap initiative.
I also love working here because I have one of the most fun teams! We work hard, we have fun and support each other, we are ambitious and we are always hungry for success. And yes, we party hard too!
The main part of my work is to ensure that all the criteria of safer gambling is met while creating state–of–the–art technological solutions for our front–end offerings. I have worked on many exciting projects but if I had to choose a favourite, it would be the Customer Experience Platform. It involved many new technologies I’d never used before and the best part was connecting with and learning from colleagues. I vastly improved my knowledge of technologies like React, React Native and AWS Cloud Platform.
The people at Sportsbet are a talented, curious, fun and passionate group. We always say we want our employees to enjoy themselves at work, and while keeping things light–hearted and celebrating milestones and moments that matter is part of that, it’s just as important that everyone feels valued for their contributions – which we make sure of. Our tech team is a great example of the friendly, hard–working company spirit we’re proud of.
Our tech stack grows constantly as we innovate, reimagine, ramp up and deliver on bigger and better experiences for our customers. We’ve always got our eyes on the future.
