The Challenge

Do you enjoy leading high-performing development teams, providing market leading, scalable solutions?

We need an inspiring senior manager to lead our Data, Payments and Gaming platform teams into the future. In total, the teams contain more than 100 developers/QAs spread over four different locations. A broad role where you will be working closely with both the product and architecture teams to ensure we are on track to reach our goals and targets.

What’s in it for you?

The opportunity to make an impact. The Data, Payments and Gaming Platforms are the core of everything we do and you will be the one leading the way.

You’re good at:

  • Leading teams and inspiring others, proven experience leading high performing development teams in a distributed environment
  • Driving change; you are resourceful, flexible and open to new ways of thinking. Everything you need to influence others
  • Large IT platform systems
  • Agile, knowing it is the only logical way to work regardless of which methodology is used
  • Business trips, because you know how important it is to get that extra time with the teams

Extra awesome:

  • If you have experience from the industry

A flavour of what you’ll be doing:

  • Setting both the short and long-term strategy, ensuring the development roadmap is being collaboratively and accurately maintained between the development team leads and the product organization
  • Responsible for the development process, code quality and alignment on ways of working between teams
  • Be a leader and mentor on Agile best practices and foster an organization who strives for continuous improvement
  • Assist and guide development managers & team leads in effective management of their teams
  • Work closely with the Betsson Architecture group to ensure design incorporate best practices such as scalability, resilience and avoiding single points of failure
  • Ensure quality of deliverables, through adequate test coverage and performance testing, through close alignment with the Quality Leadership Group

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? 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.

Challenge accepted?


I’ve been with Betsson for nine years. The great thing about this company is that something new is always happening. You never get bored.
