Bet365 is set to create more jobs in Manchester through its new DevOps department, which will work to identify new technologies.
UK.- Bet365 has announced that it will create a new department that will be based in Manchester. Hillside Technology, the technology business of Bet365, will create a new department to introduce DevOps practices.
According to the company, the DevOps team will work to identify new principles, technologies and ways of working that can drive operational automation. They will also aim to find ways to increase monitoring sophistication.
“As the scale and scope of our business has increased, so the underlying technologies and platform that support it have become more complex,” said Steven Briggs, Hillside Technology’s new Head of DevOps. “The critical question is how to keep pace with the consistent need to release software, while ensuring the platform remains stable and secure? Modernising our approach to operational and release activity is imperative and we believe a DevOps approach can help with this.
Briggs added that the goal is to give Operations the tooling, dashboards and automation needed to increase the value it offers the business. “This will involve breaking out of the team and technology silos that can otherwise hinder how the end-to-end system is understood and managed,” he said.
