  • Solid understanding of system architecture and horizontally-oriented optimisation.
  • Excellent technical skills, and the ability to work in a team.
  • A strong desire to do world class work and own your role.
  • You don’t need to be a marketer or trader, but a working knowledge of marketing and bookmaking principles will serve you well.

Working at Picklebet

  • They are hungry for insights and have a strong culture of data-driven decision-making: your input will be highly valued and acted upon.
  • Their employees make a material impact on the growth of the business within an egalitarian culture.
  • They’re a remote-first business so you can work where you like (they have staff in Brisbane, Sydney, Darwin, Asia and South America).
  • If you prefer to spend some time in the office, you can also work out of the Newstead (Brisbane) office. They also have a presence in Sydney, and expect that to grow as they scale.
  • They make decisions quickly, encourage taking calculated risks and trying new things.
  • They respectfully challenge each other to be better every day and radical (respectful) candor is one of core values.
  • Work with a highly effective team of seasoned operators from some of Australia’s best brands including: Kayo Sports, Sportsbet, Dominos, Ladbrokes, Domain, PwC, Virgin Australia and more.
  • In addition to competitive salaries, they offer an employee stock ownership plan to allow the team members to share in their success.
  • A relaxed dress code; they aren’t a bank! Sneakers & a tee is fine.
  • They serve the Australian market (for now) but their aspirations are international and their tech has been built to scale across borders.
