FanDuel Group is a world-class team of brands and products that deliver sports betting, gaming and entertainment to millions of US sports fans, every day. That’s no easy task, and wouldn't be possible without a fantastic team who have helped us pioneer new products and innovative features that make us a leader in the industry. We believe we've created a culture in which everyone can succeed, no matter how you got here.

We're passionate about creating a collaborative culture where every Engineer has a real impact so you’ll understand the value you deliver to our fans and how much they appreciate it.

What you’ll do:

As a technical leader on your team, you work to deliver the right things with limited guidance. Your work focuses on complex, ambiguous problem areas in existing or new software initiatives. You consider where each system is at in its life-cycle and where appropriate, proactively fix architecture deficiencies. You make existing systems simpler (e.g. by consolidating redundant systems, deleting unnecessary code, or removing/updating out of date documentation). You are able to take the lead on large projects that require the work of your team. You know how to divide a software project into parallel work that can be performed by you and other SEs and then reassembled successfully into a cohesive launch.

You take ownership of team architecture, providing a system-wide view and design guidance. You provide technical assessments for promotion to Sr. SE & Lead SE. You contribute to the professional development of colleagues, improving their technical knowledge and the engineering practices. You ensure your team is stronger because of your presence, but does not require your presence to be successful.

  • Coach and mentor team members
  • Identify areas for improvement and change
  • Build foundations on the gaming engine in FanDuel
  • Influence the architecture and system design

What you’ll bring:

Everyone on our team has a part to play

We are looking for technical leaders on the team who can take ownership of the architecture and code base. You will, ideally, have experience of influencing the technical direction of a team in a scaling or established technology organisation.

  • Skilled in Java and ideally SpringBoot
  • Experience working with AWS cloud based infrastructure and technologies
  • Good grasp on relational, non relational databases, messaging queues and concurrency
  • Familiarity working in an Agile environment
  • Understanding of orchestration and containerisation, ideally Kubernetes (K8s)

We treat our team right 

  • Interesting work - working in a fast-paced and ever-changing industry, new problems and exciting solutions are never too far away. There are always opportunities to learn new skills and broaden your horizons
  • A sense of achievement - Our teams own their own software and when that awesome new feature ships to users and the positive feedback starts rolling in, you can feel really proud of what you and your team created
  • Personal development - clear and defined career pathways for every role at every level, a supportive manager, loads of learning opportunities and even 10% of your time to dedicate to your learning.
  • Belonging - everyone at FanDuel works for each other, we win together, make mistakes together and have lots of fun doing it.
  • Trust - A trusting work environment where productivity is valued above all else, giving you autonomy and ownership of your time and work

Great financial package - Including salary, bonus, pension, private healthcare, share save scheme, flexible working & holiday policy along with a number of other benefits.

The requirements listed in our job description are guidelines, not hard and fast rules. You don’t have to satisfy every requirement or meet every qualification listed. If your skills are transferable and you are in the ballpark experience-wise, we’d love to speak with you.
