Description

tombola is a family owned company based in Sunderland which operates the UK's, Spain's and Italy's biggest on-line bingo websites, (with offices in Madrid, Milan and Gibraltar).

Our approach is different to many of our competitors in that we produce all of our software ourselves; in fact just about every aspect of tombola is managed in-house. We have created all of our own games and take pride in our technical innovation and the strength of the development and design teams who use cutting edge technologies to drive the business forward.

The future of tombola couldn’t be brighter as we look to build on our existing market-leading presence.

What will you do?

Successful candidates will be joining a high calibre team of infrastructure engineers who provide support to a number of online applications as well as manage a cloud based infrastructure.

We love tech such as Amazon Web Services, SQL Server, Active Directory, PowerShell, Linux (CentOS/Redhat) and Windows Server. You'll share this passion and use it to:

  • Work in a growing, autonomous team.
  • Keep abreast of industry developments in the technical arena and make recommendations as to how we can improve.
  • Automate cloud services and create a best-in-class architecture.
  • Manage and support tombola’s infrastructure and applications.
  • Champion tombola standards and ensure all internal policies and procedures are strictly adhered to.
  • Actively mentor colleagues.

About you

Employees at tombola are passionate about their chosen career paths and if successful, you'll be working with people that love what they do – therefore, you should too.

We look for the following from our people:

  • Good communication. It sounds clichéd but things like being able to express your ideas clearly, talking to non-technical colleagues and effective feedback during code reviews are incredibly important.
  • A desire to learn. The infrastructure and applications team do things other companies don't, so there is a lot to learn. But that's a good thing as we don't want to stand still. We want people who want to improve themselves.
  • Suggest improvements. We're constantly looking to improve the way we do things. From managing our workloads, to the way we deliver our infrastructure. We have an open attitude to new ideas. If you don’t like the way something is done all we ask is that you suggest a better way of doing it.
  • Think of new and unique ways to improve our customers experience. Ultimately that is what tombola is about - giving value to customers.
