Mission: We're on a mission to make Betting & Gaming Better and build the UK's Best Digital Business.
I have been working at Sky Betting & Gaming full-time (Less than a year)
One of the best things about working at SBG is the culture; it is very laid back with casual dress, flexible working hours and we are very social. The flexible working hours mean my work/life balance is better than it has ever been by far as it allows me to avoid a longer commute at rush hour. I love how social the business is too - we have regular social events as a team and also have bigger company-wide events like the races, charity ball and the gathering.
SBG also has a great benefits package which includes a free gym membership at a gym across the road. This means I can exercise on my lunch break and therefore have more time to relax at home in the evening.
Finally, SBG have really good opportunities for growth and personal development. Hard work is recognised and rewarded and there are loads of opportunities to learn new things.
There really aren't many downsides to working at SBG, although sometimes it feels like tech employees get preferential treatment over non-techies! For example the extra benefits they are entitled to.
Advice to Management
Don't change much! Be aware of preserving our culture as we continue to grow and ensure everyone is treated fairly.
I applied in-person. I interviewed at Sky Betting & Gaming in February-2018.
Technical Test was the initial phase of the interview and did not receive any call from the developer or manager as the recruiter from sky betting contacted me directly and provided the technical test details.
Reasons to work our way #45. We make sure we invest in the latest, cutting-edge software and hardware for our people to work with.
