Overview

At Sky Betting & Gaming we don’t have Teams we have Tribes. Each Tribe is made up of small, agile and autonomous squads who work collaboratively with a shared purpose.

So whether you join our Bet Tribe, Early Careers Tribe or anything in between, you will work with a group of people with raw energy, natural talent, and the kind of spirit that helps us think big, act bold, and change the game.

It all means that we’ve created the kind of workplace that wins awards such as a place on the prestigious list of Sunday Times 100 Best Companies to Work For.

What are Sky Games? 

They are a fast-paced, close-knit squad operating within the Bet Tribe and working on exciting 5-star, award winning products that include Soccer Saturday Super 6, Sky Sports Fantasy Football, Sky Sports Six-a-Side and Sporting Life Pick 7.
