We're a modern betting exchange, going technology first to enable proper price competition in a field of fat commissions. A small, agile, and fast-growing team, who early this broke £1 billion in lifetime trades on our platform. We're now mere days from the £2B milestone.
Smarkets develops a reliable, low-latency, highly concurrent betting exchange based on trading exchange designs. We're also building a fast, modern web interface to allow for a smoother experience. Servicing our users is top priority.
The Smarkets platform is written predominantly on Python and Erlang, and relies heavily on asynchronous programming techniques. We use REST where we can. Life at Smarkets circles around people, version control, configuration management and automated testing. We can - and do - deploy to production several times a day.
