Our Companies Are Hiring


Senior Software Engineer - Front-End



Software Engineering
Edinburgh, UK
Posted on Friday, March 29, 2024

FanDuel Group is a world-class team of brands and products that deliver sports betting, gaming and entertainment to millions of US sports fans every day. That’s no easy task, and wouldn't be possible without a fantastic team who have helped us pioneer new products and innovative features that make us a leader in the industry. Whether you’re looking for better career progression, improved financial security or just a better sense of belonging, we believe we’ve created a culture in which everyone can succeed, no matter how you got here.

The Position

As a Senior Software Engineer within the Responsible Gaming vertical, you will be working on systems that are paramount to the safety and security of our customers and to FanDuel. You’ll be working on a couple of different ‘brownfield’ projects that are just kicking off, where we are looking to implement full revamps.

You will be a Senior Software Engineer who has experience developing frontend services, using tools and technologies such as React (or similar frameworks) and JavaScript. There is also the opportunity to get involved in backend development (Java), but this will always be a frontend leaning role.

You will also work on upskilling the existing team (who are primarily backend developers) in this area. As a result you will be hugely passionate around mentoring, coaching and training, and place an emphasis on collaboration (think paired programming or mobbing).

Some of your responsibilities may include:

  • Creating highly available and scalable frontend applications
  • Proactively identify new opportunities and advocate for and implement improvements on projects
  • Leverage customer insights/data to inform decisions, balancing value for the customer with other business goals
  • Focusing on operational excellence (leaving things better than when you found them)
  • Actively participating in sprint ceremonies like daily huddles, backlog refinement, sprint planning, sprint review and sprint retrospective
  • Engaging in code reviews and pair-programming
  • Mentor, coach, upskill and knowledge-share with your team

What We’re Looking For

  • Experience developing mainly frontend applications (or fullstack!) with React, React Native, TypeScript, JavaScript or similar (Angular/Vue)
  • Experience working in an Agile Scrum environment
  • Experience ideally across mobile and web applications with regular releases
  • Knowledge of cloud technologies (we use AWS) would be an advantage but not essential

What You Can Expect

  • Interesting work - working in a fast-paced and ever-changing industry, new problems and exciting solutions are never too far away. There are always opportunities to learn new skills and broaden your horizons
  • A sense of achievement - Our teams own their own software and when that awesome new feature ships to users and the positive feedback starts rolling in, you can feel really proud of what you and your team created
  • Personal development - clear and defined career pathways for every role at every level, a supportive manager, loads of learning opportunities and even 10% of your time to dedicate to your learning.
  • Belonging - everyone at FanDuel works for each other, we win together, make mistakes together and have lots of fun doing it.
  • Trust - A trusting work environment where productivity is valued above all else, giving you autonomy and ownership of your time and work
  • Great financial package - Including salary, bonus, pension, private healthcare, share save scheme, flexible working & holiday policy along with a number of other benefits.
