Contract Type
Full Time

At Sky Betting & Gaming we don't have Teams we have Tribes. Each Tribe is made up of small, agile and autonomous squads who work collaboratively with a shared purpose.

So whether you join our Bet Tribe, Early Careers Tribe or anything in between, you will work with a group of people with raw energy, natural talent, and the kind of spirit that helps us think big, act bold, and change the game.

It all means that we've created the kind of workplace that wins awards such as a place on the prestigious list of Sunday Times 100 Best Companies to Work For.

What you'll do:

Working as a Digital Designer within our Creative Team means you'll be working very closely with other designers to ensure a consistent and on-brand execution for a variety of communication channels, especially Landing pages and external display banners. As a Digital Designer, your responsibilities will include:

  • Maintaining and updating landing pages and banners in html, css and javascript
  • Using javascript and css to create engaging animations
  • Ensuring that all work is delivered in-line with brand guidelines
  • Regularly working to short deadlines and fast turnaround times
  • Working with people throughout the business to supply assets before go-live
  • Having an understanding of the Creative Studio's processes and how we sit within the wider business

How you'll do it:

You'll need to be confident in html, css and javascript. You'll need to have a strong working knowledge of the Adobe Creative Suite. In particular Photoshop and Illustrator. You should be well organised and used to working with templates, consistent naming conventions and saving assets for minimal file size (whilst not jeopardising quality). A keen interest in learning new skills, cms systems and software packages is desirable.

How we work:

Our Creative Team works across all the products under Sky Betting & Gaming. We're involved in creating a wide range work including: TV ads, Digital Video, Branding, Print, Social content, Onsite, Email and Digital Display.

Our team works in a very fast paced environment where we're required to produce marketing materials to be used across our sites and externally. We quite often have to deliver assets to meet tight deadlines without compromising on quality.

We're a constantly evolving team and must react to new trends and technologies. We have team members who specialise in a particular skill, eg - Motion Graphics, 3D modelling/rendering or HTML/CSS/Javascript but also have people who are multi-skilled and can get involved where and when required.

Based in Yorkshire, we have grown to become one of the UK's leading online betting and gaming companies. A business driven by bleeding edge technology, that brings the excitement of sports betting, casino games, poker and bingo to over 700,000 customers a day & growing!

It's a workplace like no other, with a mission to make Betting & Gaming better.

And we want you to be part of it.

Our People Ambition is to attract & develop diverse & talented people to meet the current and future growth needs of SB&G. Together, our aim is to create the Best Digital Business to work at.
