JOB DESCRIPTION

Growth. The job ad above us probably says it, and the job ad below us probably says it. And guess what? We are going to say it too. But when we say it. We can promise you, we mean it.

Betfair is growing fast. Our well connected, passionate and energetic Tech & Product Team are working on some incredible initiatives at the moment! These initiatives span the breadth of building next generation of channels through to streaming of enterprise scale data.

We have a strong growth target in place and we are going to go after it. And a key area of strategic investment to drive that growth, is going to be in our Tech & Product team and No-Ops Tech stack.

And this role has key ownership to deliver on the vision. We’ve delivered the first initiative of mobile and we are only going to go faster - can you keep up?

What are we looking for?

  • Someone who makes fast and slow decisions that don’t compromise the strategic targets
  • A person who doesn’t sweat the small stuff; allowing developers creative freedom but still ruling with an iron fist on what will compromise the vision
  • A gun who will ensure all applications developed fit within the strategic landscape

Requirements

  • Collaborating with business users to create architecture in alignment with business needs
  • Updating bodies of knowledge to ensure current states are available for future planning
  • Ensuring delivery teams are supported to successfully deliver against the strategic vision
  • Providing guidance to technical teams so detailed designs align with target architecture, standards and patterns
  • Communicating complex architectures to all stakeholders so they can follow the reasoning behind the solution

But there is a catch. To be in the running for this great role, you should have:

  • 8+ years of technical hands on experience building, troubleshooting, designing and architecting solutions
  • Experience designing solutions with varying degrees of detail that incorporate cloud, utilising a native offering first approach
  • Demonstrated experience incorporating security, recovery, audit, availability, performance, operational monitoring and other requirements
  • Hands on experience managing outsourced teams to ensure architecture is delivered
  • Strong experience designing componentised solutions that scale well to meet business needs
  • Experience producing and maintaining solution architecture diagrams and artefacts to ensure knowledge libraries are up to date
  • Experience with agile methods where solution designs are iterated (advantage)
  • Experience designing Martech integrations and end to end event data systems utilising Kafka or pub/sub equivalent (advantage)
  • Experience designing high performance noSQL solutions (advantage)
  • Analytically minded with a natural flair for troubleshooting and problem solving
  • Great interpersonal skills including an ability to develop key relationships
  • You like hanging out with and being part of a team
  • A strong curiosity that drives a deeper understanding of all things technical
