Sky Betting and Gaming aims to bring the excitement of sports betting, casino, poker and bingo to a rapidly growing number of customers in the betting and gaming market. Through our close relationships with Sky Sports we can provide a unique opportunity to deliver a real experience that makes us stand out in the online gaming sector. We're striving to be the best digital business in the UK and we're well on our way, this year we've been nominated as one of The Sunday Times Top 100 companies to work for as well as bagging a handful of accolades at the 2015 EGR awards and we're not planning on slowing down anytime soon! From our base in Leeds and across all our sites, we are experiencing rapid growth and are constantly looking for the best talent to help us in our continued success. Are you in?

Reporting to the Senior Product Manager, this role will be responsible for managing and growing the stable of free to play games that leverage the Sky Sports brand and are a cornerstone of Sky Games's strong relationship and association with Sky Sports. Sky Games have over 1 million users each week, spread across 4 games; Soccer Saturday Super 6, Sky Sports Fantasy Football, Sky Sports Six a Side and Channel 4 Pick 6.

Based in Leeds (with some travel required) you will play a fundamental role in the future development and success of Sky Games, Sky Bet and Sky Sports. Working with a wide range of internal and external stakeholders (particularly Sky Sports and Sky Bet) as well as 3rd party resources you will be responsible for creating game experiences that achieve significant participation and subsequent customer engagement.

Acting as the eyes and ears of the customer you will use analytics, insight and research to drive your decisions and in doing so prioritise the relevant delivery stream backlogs to create first class digital products and maximise value to the business.

This is an exciting area of the business that is already adding to the current game portfolio and is working closely with Sky Sports to utilise the games to help them achieve their own goals.

We are looking for an individual of potential, with relevant product delivery experience in a consumer facing digital or ecommerce environment. Exposure to game development particularly social games would be particularly interesting with experience of working with agile development methodology.

As a valued employee, you will receive free Sky + HD and Broadband, as much free Yorkshire tea as you can drink (we are in God's country after all), or the stronger stuff if you're more of a coffee connoisseur. A digital private healthcare scheme along with Herman Miller chairs to ensure your derriere is as comfortable as possible whilst you're innovating and a pension scheme that will send you jet setting off into retirement. All this in a flexible working environment with some of the best minds in the industry help make Sky Betting and Gaming a really great place to work (if we don't say so ourselves). So come join us, one sugar or two?
