Job Description

Digitalent is proud to be partnering with a highly successfully E-Commerce firm within the gaming,

gambling and competitions industry for this exciting opportunity.


The Company:

This company was started just over four and a half years ago in Blackpool by a young local

entrepreneur who had seen a company offering a similar service but a delivering a terrible

customer experience. He started the business in the belief that he could create something better.

Four years on and the company is now performing outstandingly from a sales perspective, growing

by more than 100% every year for the past three years. The company has invested in brand new

state of the art offices in Poulton-Le-Fylde and the new office will be ready in early October for the

team to move in.

The business relies solely on the website and mobile app to generate sales and they are now in a

position where they would like to phase out their overseas Development Team of 3 Developers and

bring these roles in-house here in the UK.

Due to the financial success of the company for the past few years, they are now looking to grow

the wider team by at least 5 staff and the Senior Developer role will be the go-to person within the

team from a Software Development and Technology perspective.


The Role:

After an initial few months handover period with the Lead Developer overseas, this role will

become a stand alone role initially with a view to building a small team of Developers around this

person. The role will report directly into the Founder of the business and there will be lots of

opportunity to have a real impact on the direction of the company from a tech perspective. The day

to day role will be fast paced and have no ‘red-tape’ as you will be working so closely with the

leader and key decision maker of the business.

The Senior Developer role will be involved in developing new features as well as maintaining this

hugely successful website, mobile apps and backend.


Tech Stack:

The website and mobile apps have been developed in React JS and React Native with some Node

JS using Firebase as the platform to develop the website and mobile apps.


Essential skills:

• React JS

• React Native

• Node JS

• Front end skills in HTML / CSS / jQuery


Desirable skills and experience (NOT Essential):

• Firebase

• MobX


The role will initially be working from home until the new office refurb is completed and ready for

staff to move in around early October. There will then be a requirement for at least the first 6

months to be working full-time from the new office in Poulton-Le-Fylde. There may be an option to

work from home more frequently after this initial period of time.


In order to attract the right calibre of candidate, the company is willing to pay extremely well from a

salary perspective and they also offer regular monthly and quarterly bonuses based on overall

company performance.


There will also be the opportunity to test out some of the competition prizes on offer to the website

and app customers which include pretty cool gadgets and you’d be able to drive some high

performance sports cars (Ferrari’s, Lamborghini’s etc) too if that’s your thing!


This is a very unique and seldom seen opportunity so if you are interested in finding out more,

please send Chris Morrow, Managing Director of Digitalent your CV, Github etc today for a

confidential in-depth discussion about the company and the role:
