Data Engineer

Xanadu is an innovative technology company that develops best-in-class betting software and provides operational support and services for clients in Europe and in the US. Our largest client is Matchbook, one of the world's leading and most sophisticated betting exchanges

Matchbook is no ordinary website, it 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 with an average response time of under 50ms, while also handling billions of dollar’s worth of transactions. To put some of this into perspective, Matchbook processes more transactions each day than Amazon.com does on Black Friday.
