Job Description

Racebets is hiring for a Backend Software Engineer to join the team! Well versed with PHP, you will be joining a close-knit team who are behind the making of the our successful in-house horse racing platform at Betsson Group. 


The Wow

You will be responsible for managing back-end services, the interchange of data between the server and the users, primarily through REST APIs, and the integration with third-party platforms through their APIs. Your focus will be the development of all server-side logic, definition and maintenance of the central database, and ensuring high performance and responsiveness to requests from the front-end.


A Taster of what you will be involved with

  • Implementation of a robust set of services and APIs to power our web applications
  • Solve complex performance problems and architectural challenges
  • Building reusable code and libraries for future use
  • Optimization of the application for maximum speed and scalability
  • Implementation of security and data protection


What we are looking for

  • Proficient knowledge of object oriented development using PHP8 and MVC design patterns
  • Familiar with JAVA, Docker, AWS Services (ie. ECS, RDS, CloudWatch)
  • Strong knowledge of at least one popular PHP web framework such as Laravel or Symfony
  • Proficient understanding of OWASP security principles
  • Understanding fundamental design principles behind a scalable application
  • Proficient in writing and optimizing SQL statements
  • Implementing automated testing platforms and unit tests
  • Basic understanding of front-end technologies, such as JavaScript, HTML5, and CSS3
  • Proficient understanding of code versioning tools, such as Git


What we offer

Much like riding a rollercoaster, sometimes life at Betsson can be lightning fast with twists and turns but always FUN! Then again, what else would you expect from a business 75% millennial and 1700 strong, spread across 7 offices with 900 based out of our Malta HQ alone! We recognise it may not be for the faint-hearted, but if you’re a go-getter, initiator and adrenaline junkie, always striving to push the boundaries and challenge yourself, then you’ll fit right in.
