Betfair Romania Development announces new business division

Betfair Romania Development, the largest tech hub of online sports betting and iGaming company Flutter Entertainment, is investing in a new tech division and aims to reach 2,000 employees by the end of this year, the company announced.

The company has grown over the past four years, doubling its workforce and becoming a major player in the Romanian software development market, it said.

The Cluj office is the only one on a global level that serves all five Flutter business areas, which continuously attracts the opening of new business areas specialized in the software development of the products in the group’s global portfolio. After the success of Flutter Studios, a division founded in 2023 with the task of developing and integrating games for online casinos, the group decided to open a similar division for the PokerStars brand.

The intensive recruiting process targets new roles within the structure of these departments, focusing on engineering and delivery, data and game development. The new departments, the migration from on-premise technologies to cloud functions and the increase in the number of new products have resulted in a 30.5% growth in Betfair Romania’s development team in 2023 alone.

The company currently employs 1,700 people. The goal of reaching 2,000 employees by the end of this year targets all centers of excellence in the Cluj office, especially those in areas such as casino (game development), account management (creation of management and customer protection systems) and data.

“The Romanian market needs companies that develop complex software products locally to increase the value of the IT workforce. The directions in which Betfair Romania Development continues to grow are those that add value and are sustainable in the long term. We promote diversity, creativity and flexibility and offer an environment in which colleagues can continually develop their skills. We promote a culture of collaboration and continuous learning while ensuring a variety of attractive projects and benefits,” says Ioana Popa, Managing Director.

The flexible working methods and wide range of additional benefits have allowed the company to hire employees on a national level, with almost 10% of the total number of employees based outside Cluj County.

Flutter Entertainment Plc, the parent company of Betfair Romania Development and one of the world’s largest online sports betting and iGaming companies, was listed on the New York Stock Exchange in January 2024.
