Former Employee - Software Engineer

I worked at OpenBet full-time for more than a year

Pros

Work life balance The management within Australia is/was competent and cared about the employees Fun team to work with Really smart engineers Occasionally interesting problems arise and it's a... fun challenge as an engineer to find a solution

Cons

Everything you heard about the tech being legacy is wrong. It's not legacy, it's ancient. You should be a paleontologist to be working with something that ancient. The primary language used is TCL... and the database is Informix, enough said. Pay is much lower than what you could earn at competitors. Let's just say you are looking at a 25-30% raise if you switch jobs. The local management within Australia is great, but I can't say the same about the ones at the top of the food chain. The company has been sold thrice in the few years I have been there. Their primary focus is constantly looking for higher bidders instead of focusing on making a sustainable product or rewriting the decades old code. The tech debt is, well let's just say at Chernobyl levels and it's a testament to the engineers that the product is still managing to hold well even though it's dated.

Advice to Management

Focus on making the product better and pay your engineers what they are worth. Gradually rewrite the platform before it's too late to revive your TCL code base from the dead. Focus on employees... which will eventually lead to happier developers and inturn happier customers.
