A place where anything is possible

 

Our story began in 2000 when a group of people set up a venture called Surrey Sports from a small office in Harrogate. Since then, we’ve gone on to build and establish some of the country’s biggest brands in betting and gaming, including Sky Bet, Sky Vegas, Soccer Saturday Super 6 and Sky Sports Fantasy Football.

We work together to turn our big ideas into reality – it’s our passion. We’re given the freedom and flexibility to be our very best selves.

We’re now a leading tech and digital company in Yorkshire. Our Sky heritage means ‘better runs through us like a stick of rock.’ Today, we have more than 1,600 colleagues — and every single one of us takes the responsibility and the opportunity to create amazing experiences for our players.

 

               

Better is just the beginning

 

At Sky Betting & Gaming, we begin with better. What we do with it, and where we take it, is up to us. We want to thrill, excite and entertain our customers, every time they play with us. That demands better tech, better products and better offers. And what powers better? Our people.

Each day we embrace three values that mean we always think and act for the customer:

Create The Next – We never stop discovering, developing or asking ‘what next?’ in our quest to take betting and gaming to new and exciting places.

Free To Be Me – We’re given the freedom and flexibility to be our very best selves, and do things the way we think they should be done.

Know It Share It – We’re keen to share our workings and keen to learn from others. After all, when great people collaborate, great things happen.

We give back to the Leeds Tech Community

 

As one of the leading tech and digital companies in Yorkshire it’s no surprise why the Leeds Tech Community is so important to us.  

Our employees have helped to organise a variety of events to network & share ideas including; Leeds/Sheffield Dev Ops, Tech Managers Meet Up, Mobile Monthly and Product Tank Yorkshire.  

We’ve also built strong relationships with our Yorkshire Universities, running events to encourage graduates to pursue a career in tech with our ‘Coding for Beginners’ and running Mock Assessment Days.  

We support Code First Girls which is a non-profit organisation which aims to give girls across the country an opportunity to learn more about Coding and build their experience. Colleagues at Sky Betting & Gaming run lessons with members to teach them things like Web Development.

We’re looking forward to opening our doors in our brand new Leeds office and welcoming evening talks back to our purpose build amphitheatre which is where our Leeds Digital Festival events will be taking place!
