Grand Parade

In Krakow, we’re doing tech.

We’re obsessed with building advanced products and systems that are used by millions of people worldwide every week – and we’re pretty proud of that. Our systems are highly reliable and resilient with low latency. In fact, it is similar to the transactional systems big banks might use but we think it’s a bit more fun here at William Hill.

We process as many online sportsbook bets per second on a typical Saturday as Amazon UK on its busiest day of the year and we deliver complex systems in a highly-regulated environment, yet one that prides itself on customer interaction and innovation.

We’re embracing a DevOps culture already, having used Agile at Scale for many years before. All teams collaborate with the Product organization and work in self-organizing configurations that enable them to overcome implementation difficulties with ease.

William Hill Core Values

Our values are designed to protect and preserve all the great things about William Hill and set the aspiration for what we can become in the future.

Values make it clear ‘how’ we should all behave, day in, day out. They influence the decisions and choices we make. They’re provocative, simple and direct. They’re not wishy-washy. They say it like it is.

Eyes on the customer

Give a damn

Own it

On the same side

It'll do will never do

Culture change starts at the top, through the example that leaders set. Our vitals make clear what we expect from leaders that go over and above our values.

  • Leave a legacy
  • Create the new
  • Grow our people
  • Walk the talk
  • It's on you
