Job Description: 

Our client is reinventing the digital lottery experience, unlocking new sources of funding for the causes that are making a difference. The group is part of a larger association which has been at the forefront of digital lottery innovation and has generated more than €1.5bn in returns to society since 1999.

Their vision is to offer the most engaging and complete online lottery experience in the Czech Republic. Currently focused on proving product-market fit and hence building a team lead by two hands-on co-founders who will be supported by a designer, a full stack developer and a content manager. This team will enjoy complete autonomy and be accountable for the success of the business.

Role

We are looking for a mid-level software developer experienced in both backend and frontend development. Successful candidates will have the ability to enhance and support the API based platform used to operate the lottery and manage the test and live environments in a public cloud such as AWS. And they will be able to develop the web-based frontend application that consumes the platform APIs to offer an engaging lottery playing experience for our customers.

What We Value

We value ability, aptitude and motivation much more highly than what industries you’ve worked in, or how well we recognize your past employers. We very much value integrity, the ability to do what you say you are going to do, and to care about our customers in all that you say and do.

Additionally, your ability to have good attention to detail and to be actively involved in trade-off discussions about how to engineer software to meet the business’s short- and long-term needs.

Responsibilities

  • Design and develop required backend modules
  • Design and develop web based frontend client based on designs provided
  • Work with the rest of the team to setup experiments to learn from real customer behaviour and help progress towards product-market fit
  • Debug and support production issues that may impact day-to-day operations of the site after going live

Required Experience

  • Minimum 4 years of experience as software developer
  • Experience with Java and frameworks such as Hibernate and Spring
  • Experience with JavaScript (ES6 and React)
  • Experience with managing software deployments on AWS would be a plus
  • Experience with developing within a micro-services architecture would also be a plus

What We Offer

  • A meaningful opportunity to build an exciting business that is loved by its customers
  • A permanent role working for Lottovate with very high autonomy
  • Stimulating and challenging environment and peers
  • Attractive remuneration with strong link to value creation
  • A culture that prizes autonomy and entrepreneurial thinking
  • Flexibility on working hours and location. We care about results not attendance.

We are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity at our company. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, colour, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability.
