At Sky Betting & Gaming we don't have teams we have Tribes. Each Tribe is made up of small, agile and autonomous squads who work collaboratively with a shared purpose. So whether you join our Bet Tribe, Early Careers Tribe or anything in between, you will work with a group of people with raw energy, natural talent, and the kind of spirit that helps us think big, act bold, and change the game. It all means that we've created the kind of workplace that wins awards such as a place on the prestigious list of Sunday Times 100 Best Companies to Work For.

Infrastructure & Security Tribe: We're the Tribe who provide the muscle. The pieces in between. Networks, Storage, Virtual Machines, Cloud Platforms and more. We manage the infrastructure that is behind all our services, with a focus on developer accessibility and low cost of startup for our internal customers. Whether it's heading up incidents, investigations and changes, we make tech decisions to keep everything working smoothly, 24/7. And, we make sure we keep all our colleagues up and running all day too. All 1000 of them. Join our tribe and you'll do the same.
