Job description

Xanadu is an innovative technology company that develops best-in-class betting software and provides operational support and services for clients in Europe and in the US. Our largest client is Matchbook, one of the world's leading and most sophisticated betting exchanges.

To put some of this into perspective, Matchbook processes more transactions each day than does on Black Friday.
