Betfair is a passionate, forward-thinking company where things are always happening. Sport happens minute-to-minute, in real-time, and that’s how we like to think too. We want people who are always asking ‘what’s next?’

Betfair currently runs three distinct products – the world-first/world-famous Exchange (pioneered in 1999), a huge Gaming platform (including live poker dealers, bingo, a casino and hundreds of slot machines), and new to 2013, a traditional Sportsbook. As these all evolve though, the lines are becoming more and more blurred, and our dream is one fully integrated product.

The focus is very much on constantly improving the user experience, and it is this which drives our innovation – apps, promotions and features such as the revolutionary Cash Out.

The combination is a unique, comprehensive betting service that believes in entertaining its audience as much as it encourages them to bet.

We want our staff to feel the same way as our users – excited, empowered and eager to come back for more.
