Front-End Web Developer

Full-time
RaceBets International Gaming Ltd.
RaceBets is a world-leading horse racing bookmaker. Our aim is to give customers the best and most-comprehensive horse betting experience that can be found online. We offer markets for horse racing in 40 different countries, which is three times as many as our nearest rival. Our customers can bet on over 250,000 different races, each year! We also have a vast ante-post section and stream hundreds of races per day through our exclusive video-player. RaceBets was founded in 2005. By 2007, we had established ourselves as the largest bookmaker in Germany. In 2010, we invited German Racing to become shareholders and a significant percentage of our profits are now reinvested in horse racing. This means that the money stays in and supports the racing industry! In the same year, we relocated from Germany to Malta which is Europe's main online gaming hub. 2012 was a landmark year for RaceBets, as it was then that we first offered full-coverage of UK and Irish horse racing markets. Since then, the company has gone from strength to strength. We now rank as one of the most-recognised and respected brands in global race-betting. We have come a long way in a short time and we want to continue to build on our success. Our company is regulated by the Malta Gaming Authority (MGA). We also hold a UK license, which is issued by the UK Gambling Commission.
