Tech Team

We are the world’s largest Matched Betting subscription website, and it is our commitment to innovation and continuous improvement of our products and services that attracts so many subscribers.

We are working on a complete overhaul of our software with no areas left untouched, and our technical team has grown from ~5 to more than 12 over the past year, with further growth planned.

With ambitious plans to diversify our software portfolio, and take on long running projects of increasing complexity we require a Project Manager to review and build upon our approach, and work closely with our team to deliver software projects.

Our project manager will work with the team to help us refine our processes ensuring continuous improvement across the team.

There is also scope for progression and additional responsibilities within the business.
