About White Hat Gaming

Founded in 2012, White Hat Gaming (WHG) is an online casino technology and services company with offices in Malta, London, Gibraltar, Chicago, and Cape Town. With a global team of over 550 specialists, we provide market-leading content, including Kambi Sportsbook and over 100 leading games providers.

We promote and foster a highly collaborative environment, offering complete flexibility and autonomy to our staff. As we grow rapidly, we continue to maintain a start-up atmosphere where we help each other and take a holistic approach to our day-to-day responsibilities. 


In Summary:

We’re looking for a PHP Full Stack Engineer to help work on the framework of our shared websites to maintain and deliver new functionality for features we are building. If you can juggle a number of small changes and a handful of bigger changes while keeping an eye on the bigger picture and the next generation of our tools, then we’re interested in talking to you.


The Job:

  • Maintaining our custom website framework and making ad-hoc requests to specific sites
  • Adding new features to the website framework and to the CMS
  • Improving the performance of the websites
  • Working closely with Front End team to assist with changes that require PHP functionality
  • Working on the development of various small internal applications as required
  • Implement unit testing on new and existing code
  • Diagnosing and fixing production issues
  • Taking part in code reviews
  • Working on developing a new CMS framework (Kirby CMS) and implementing this in headless mode with our angular frontend.
  • Not being phased by the strange variety of things that need doing in a small growing company
  • Being proactive and not just waiting to be told the next thing to do
  • Finding better ways that we can get things done 


What you already have:

  • At least 3 years expertise in PHP
  • At least 1 year of experience with Angular
  • Good understanding of front-end technologies, such as JavaScript, HTML5, and CSS3
  • Some experience in building solutions from scratch with only minimal requirements, to begin with
  • A good visual eye for user interfaces and an instinct for creating a good user experience
  • 2+ years writing raw SQL beyond just simple select statements
  • Familiarity with unit/integration testing
  • Good interpersonal skills and a great team attitude
  • The ability to quickly learn new things and adapt


Nice to have:

  • Strong knowledge of common PHP or web server exploits, and their solutions
  • Experience with Jira or similar project management tool
  • Experience working with Kirby CMS
  • Experience using a modern JavaScript framework (we are using Angular but experience in React, Vue, or similar is good too)
  • Experience migrating legacy codebases to cleaner architectures and modern frameworks
  • Some experience of the online casino industry


How we approach things:

  • Medium-sized company with a start-up culture and a can-do ethos.
  • We focus on getting stuff done, not on the process or management hierarchy.
  • Working remotely but communicating regularly.
  • Open-door policy across all levels and departments.
  • An inclusive environment with staff from all around the world.


What we offer:

  • A mostly remote and flexible working schedule. 
  • Generous time off varied based on the country of residence.
  • Training on the job.
  • Opportunity to progress within the company, not limited to one department or team.
  • Hardware & Software allowance or work equipment is provided to make sure you have all the right tools to get the job done.
