Meet Leanne, one of our full stack Software Engineers working on our essential Trading Model tools.
"As a Software Engineer at Sky Betting and Gaming, I spend my time working across the full stack of applications, from the back end to the front end, and with a range of languages and tools such as Java, React and Node. Because I'm part of a Cloud first squad, I also spend a lot of time working with leading cloud tech like AWS and I'm pretty active in our diversity streams like SBG Women in Tech and SBGPride."
"I stumbled into software engineering after originally setting out to work in medicine. That didn’t last long, and my medicine career turned into a forensic science degree at which point I changed my mind again and switched to a generic computing degree, and then to a software engineering degree. Turns out I definitely made the right choice in the end - I love it!"
"Right now, I'm part of the Trading Models squad and we develop essential tools that allow our internal traders to input values for events before generating prices which are displayed on skybet.com for a customer to see and bet on. I think my proudest moment has been writing a pretty comprehensive post for the SBG tech blog, and speaking to an EGR reporter, about our move to AWS. I'm building up to speaking publicly and this is the first step I've taken outside of my comfort zone - and I'm really pleased I did it."
"What I love most about working at SBG is the chance to work with new tech. Friday afternoon L&D sessions are great too, and I'm using some of my Ninja fund to gain AWS accreditations. And the people are amazing too - they're always willing to share their knowledge, expertise and help out in any way they can."
"We have a really good atmosphere in the contact centre within Sky Betting & Gaming. We make it a fun environment for all the advisors and all the customer experience leaders."
Ian, Customer Experience Manager - Customer Ops Tribe
"We work in an open plan office and I think one advantage of that is that everyone's accessible from director level all the way down."
MB, Senior CRM Analyst - Data Tribe
