Summary

What we do

Sporting Solutions is the business-to-business (B2B) provider of Sporting Index, and provides trading and pricing services to the betting and gaming industry.

Founded in 1992, Sporting Index is the global leader in its sector, having secured over 80% of the sports spread betting market. Sporting Solutions leverages Sporting Index's renowned trading and modelling skills to provide partners with an extensive fixed-odds service covering in-play pricing, in-play content, trading tools and liability management.

As a founder of in-play betting, trading knowledge is at the heart of our service and differentiates us from other providers. We do not rely purely on algorithms to generate a market average price. An average price is by definition average and not always correct, especially when there is no underlying market to act as a guide. Our trading expertise is combined with advanced statistical analysis, and proprietary models, in order to produce a triangulated price – the right price.

Sporting Solutions offers a one-stop shop in-play solution which ensures services are synchronised and accelerates time to market. It is a complimentary and non-competitive service. We do not operate a fixed-odds sportsbook and can therefore provide fixed-odds services to our partners, free from any competitive conflict.

Why Work For Us

We're a small but fast-growing team based in Cape Town and London. Currently a team of 23 developers and looking to grow to 30-40 by the end of the year. It's a great opportunity to join a young team and learn and grow with the company.

We offer something for everybody and hiring at Junior all the way to Senior level Software Engineers.

You'll be working on cutting edge technologies and have the opportunity to work on an Award-Winning platform.

Our Culture

We are a relatively small Cape Town team with everyone taking responsibility and ownership for their work rather than being told what to do. We are a young team in a relaxed work environment. We work hard but we also have fun together.

Our Engineering Processes

We follow best practices using proven methods and tools. We have an Agile approach with a continuous deployment setup with testing at our core. Most systems are built in .Net but we also like to make use of open source products and technologies. We believe in a strict following of the SOLID principles which enables us to write maintainable, extendable and testable code.

Our Hiring Process

The interview process would depend on the role but it's usually a 3 step process:

Step 1: Would be to invite you to do an online Codility test (70 min)
Step 2: A technical face to face interview (45 min) and coding assignment (1 hour)
Step 3: Final telephonic interview with London office
