Tom helps to build the front end applications that allow our customers to bet on football games.
“I’m a software engineer within the Bet Tribe, and I work on the Football Squad. So, I’m responsible for building the front end applications that allow our customers to bet on football games. What makes our job different is the mix of technology stacks and the cross skilled teams. It means we’re able to help out other squads with their stacks and we always create opportunities to share best practice and knowledge.”
“I joined SBG on the very first Software Academy after graduating from University. I chose the Software Engineer route and was placed within the Football squad and loved it from the first day. One of my proudest achievements is our latest application that we’re about to launch to customers that will enhance the In-Play Football betting experience. It will introduce some exciting features to customers, and it’s been great working towards making the gaming experience better.”
“One of the best things about working at SBG is that I feel supported and valued by both my team and my manager. From day one, I was made to feel welcome, whether it was for my technical contributions or anything else, and I’ve always felt comfortable enough to truly be myself when with my colleagues.”
“I’m a passionate road cyclist when I’m not in work and love a sunny weekend out on my bike. In work, I spend a lot of time leading the LGBT+ work stream (which is affectionately christened as Pride) because I really wanted to be part of a movement to make the worklife of LGBT+ colleagues easier and better. It’s a fantastic idea and our focus is on making SBG the best place to work for everyone.”
“And having gone from just wearing a rainbow lanyard and questioning whether it was necessary, to being fully involved in the Diversity and Inclusion initiative here at SBG, I’m incredibly proud of how we’ve far come.”
