Technology At Sportsbet

We are in the business of knowing what our customers want, developing the right products and delivering them to market. Getting to #1 in the App Store is no mean feat!

The Tech & Product teams constantly innovate and develop ways to make our products faster, more reliable, and more attractive to our customers at the front end, whilst ensuring that everything is kept running smoothly in the background.

Imagine dealing with 25k hits per second and knowing your app can stand up to the rigour! 

Across Tech you’ll meet people who are super passionate about using the latest in mobile tech and understanding customer drivers, to build exciting products that significantly impact how they engage with us.

Our teams are agile, curious, analytical, creative, and driven.  

They love a good hackathon challenge, have a lot of fun (lip synch battle anyone?) and a penchant for devouring crazy wings!

Get To Know The Technology Team

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!

Ashlyn Lewis
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.

Alex McArthur

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.

Leigh-Anne Sharland
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.
