What you’ll do…

As a Native Architect you’ll be responsible for owning and evolving the technical architecture of our iOS and Android apps and systems.

We need someone with significant experience in iOS / Android development to join us in our mission to become the best digital bookmaker in the UK.

Reporting into the Head of Architecture, you will work closely with our in-house squads, especially our Native squad, steering the evolution of their systems to ensure they’re sustainably fit for purpose and of the highest quality.

You’ll define the technical architecture of the things we build, in collaboration with the relevant engineers, architects and other stakeholders. You’ll facilitate and govern technical decision making throughout, to deliver industry leading products which are performant, resilient, scalable and secure.

As well as working with squads, you’ll also be outward facing, working with third party UK delivery partners, and playing an active role in the broader technical direction of the tribe as a whole, participating in tribe-wide, or cross-tribe initiatives, and building great relationships with Traders, Product, Commercial, Marketing, and the wider tech team both within the Bet Tribe, and across SB&G.

How you’ll do it…

You’ll be an exceptional leader and role model, demonstrating a strong delivery ethic using Agile values and principles in the way you work and think. You’ll evangelise quality and predictability, using a metric driven approach to continuous improvement.

As an architect in the Bet Tribe you’re passionate about technology, and will keep abreast of developments within the market, industry and technology landscape. You’ll be working with an incredibly talented team of Tech Leads, Engineers, Product Leads, Commercial and Marketing specialists who love what they do. You’ll learn from them, and they’ll learn from you.

You should have an insatiable appetite for learning new things and improving existing ones. You’ll have an important role to play in inspiring our people to constantly make betting better.
