About Xanadu

Xanadu is an innovative technology company that develops best-in-class betting software and provides operational support and services to Matchbook.com; one of the World's leading betting exchanges.

Xanadu was formed in 2011 and has since grown to a global business with 100+ staff based in Cork, London & Italy. Xanadu was previously awarded the prestigious title of Cork SME Company of the Year in the Cork Chamber of Commerce Awards and this award is a true testament to the hard work and commitment each and every one of our employees put into everything they do, and it's great to have the Cork Chamber of Commerce recognise how far we have come as a company in a relatively short space of time.

Our Technology

Matchbook is no ordinary website. The challenges are big, really big.

Matchbook has more in common with the New York Stock Exchange than with a bookmaker. It operates at a massive scale, processing more than 500 million API requests a day, and handling billions of dollars worth of transactions. To put some of this into perspective, Matchbook processes more transactions each day than Amazon.com does on Black Friday.

At Matchbook you’ll work at a scale which you’ll rarely find anywhere else.

Event Driven Architecture

We design, build and operate high performance transactional systems using the best technology available.

Large Scale Systems

We truly operate at web scale, processing over half a billion API requests every day.

Company Culture

Our teams are highly aligned, empowered and autonomous. We value initiative and creativity.

We focus on innovation, teamwork and of course excellence in everything we do.
