Take a look at our Gamesys brands & sites - Virgin, Jackpotjoy, Vera&John, Monopoly - they’re some of the best-known names in our industry. Join us and you’ll be joining a big, international group with some great brands and an exciting future. You’ll feel part of one global family, working with smart people, and delivering a great experience for our players. There’s one thing we expect from you, over and above everything else. Be yourself. One of the values in our DNA is ‘stay wonderfully weird’ – and that applies to all of us.




Summary


The Gamesys marketing development teams work on a set of frameworks designed to enable the fast delivery of on-site promotions and offers across all client facing products in the Gamesys portfolio. As a team we choose our own technologies and expect everyone to have an opinion on our direction and code.


Our frameworks and tooling are written using React and Redux and we are frequently adding new features to engage our players and improve our workflow. We are in the process of re-designing our core architecture in preparation for an exciting new feature set that we aim to introduce to our players over the course of next year.
