Bet365's Hillside Technology arm has announced that it has launched a new branch that will allow the company to develop new technologies related to the betting industry.
The new hub will be tasked with creating new technologies and determining whether or not they'll be suitable for the Bet365 platform. If the technologies are suitable, the team will work with different departments in the company for integration. The branch will see a number of employees hired in from both inside and outside of Bet365.
Regarding the launch, Hillside Technology Head of Platform Innovation Alan Reed said, "The strength of our product and the creativity of the people who engineer it, has ensured we've continued to lead the market.
"Looking forward, we want to take the next quantum leap. Doing so will require looking outward and exploring the new technologies and processes that exist outside of our purview.
"We're looking for free thinkers who excel at solving real world problems. People who can approach technologies like the Metaverse, Bitcoin and ChatGPT without bias, pull them apart, and return with ideas on how they can disrupt our business.
"In addition to our internal and external recruitment, we will run a residency programme to immerse our people in a culture of innovation and determine how it can be driven into their departments."
