About Us
Sportsbet is a leading Australian e-commerce business in the online wagering sector, bringing excitement to over 2 million Aussies. We do this by living our values to create an innovative entertainment brand, trailblazing products and best-in-class platforms that deliver great experiences to our customers.

We have over 1,300 team members at Sportsbet but as part of the Flutter Group, we’re a true global player.

Committed To Responsible Gambling

Our commitment to responsible gambling is genuine and demonstrated through the wide range of responsible gambling initiatives and tools.

We’re proud to be the leaders in responsible gambling in our industry, not just locally, but globally.

About The Role

From modelling sports to personalising experiences, delivering advantage through cutting edge predictive models is key to Sportsbet’s current and future success in a highly competitive market. We work with business and technology stakeholders to build new data products, and seek out processes that are ripe for disruption.

We are investing in our MLOps framework, ML engineering support, and global data and Risk & Trading platforms. We work at massive scale - when we build a pricing model, it powers the entire Flutter group - and we are levelling up our data and tech footprints to continue to stay ahead of the pack. With over 2 million active customers in Australia (over 7m globally), and 200 price updates per second, there is ample opportunity for our data scientists to have an impact.

Our Risk & Pricing Data Science, aka Quants, team applies quantitative and data science techniques to deliver innovative betting products to our large customer base(>2m); as well as helping the business understand, quantify, and make better decisions around risk. As the pioneers of Same Game Multi, Sportsbet has a proud history of being a global trendsetter in this space – this role has been added to help ensure we maintain that primacy. Within the broader data science team, we work closely with teams that work on areas such as safer gambling, marketing, customer lifecycle, and personalisation.
