Since launching in 1999 we have become the leading UK platform in Sports Spread Betting and have received awards for our Financial Spread Betting and CFD trading platform. It is our people and the technologies created by our skilled tech team behind our year-on-year double-digit growth.

We’re looking for driven and aspiring software engineers to join our talented 20 strong technology team.

  • Have experience building web applications using HTML / CSS / Javascript / SQL
  • You have created your own personal projects
  • You communicate and work well with others
  • Enjoy learning by doing

What you will be doing

As a Graduate developer, you will be building web applications and the application services that they rely on, working with a diverse technology stack and ample opportunity for learning and growing.

The technologies you’ll be working with include:

  • C#/.NET
  • Angular & Typescript
  • Oracle
  • While we don’t expect you to be familiar with the following, there’s room to grow your knowledge in the team on a broad technology stack. We use Docker, Service Fabric, Redis, RabbitMQ. Consul, Graphite/Grafana, ElasticSearch, PowerShell and more to get the job done.

Why Spreadex

#1 - A culture of innovation
We encourage fresh ideas and new approaches in our service landscape that comprises over 100 services in the production environment alone. We love C# and we love .NET. But we’re not afraid to use open-source. From Redis to RabbitMQ, Docker to node, we use plenty of good things from outside the Microsoft ecosystem.

#2 - Led by developers we understand tech
Hands-on managers, who write code daily and understand technology. Even one of our directors writes code. Our in-house technology platform is a huge asset and we are constantly finding ways to improve it.

#3 - We pay well
We’re a successful company and we’re not afraid to share it with our developers. Our salaries are highly competitive and annual bonuses reflect personal and company performance. There are lots of other benefits too (see below).

#4 - A great working environment
Say goodbye to bureaucracy, we make decisions fast here. We constantly try to improve through our retrospective meetings and our infamous “sticky note” sessions. Despite being a team of just 20 engineers, we still manage to push out 30-40 releases to production every week. There’s little room for getting bored in such an environment! We don’t work to deadlines (unless the regulators are involved of course) and we don’t work into the night.

You’ll be working with the latest tools and powerful hardware. Collaboration is encouraged and pairing-up to solve particularly tricky problems is the norm. We embrace Agile but we don’t follow it blindly. If this is the kind of environment that makes you tick and you have a passion for building quality software we want to hear from you.
