Leading Tech Company and Age Inclusive Employer The Workshop – Inventors of Play are Actively Recruiting 50+ Talent

The Workshop is an industry-leading tech company that develops new casino games, betting platforms, fintech, blockchain and enterprise software solutions. Their core business is based around software development, with over half the organisation being made up of talented engineers working in product management, design, analytics and development.

With 700+ employees across offices in Auckland, Berlin, Málaga, Madrid, London, Reading and Zurich, The Workshop is an international and highly diverse workforce. Their employees represent more than 30 different countries, speaking 25 different languages. Refreshingly for a tech company, their diversity extends to age, too.

The Workshop is proud to be working in partnership with 55/Redefined to lead the way as an Age Inclusive Accredited employer, and is pro-actively seeking over-50s talent to join them.

The Workshop Has Outstanding Opportunities for 50+ Workers

It takes many teams of software developers, UX designers, game artists, product managers and more to make The Workshop what it is. Being a tech company, many job opportunities lie in the areas of software engineering and development. However, there are also opportunities for HR specialists, product managers, communications professionals and more. Plus, the organisation is committed to ensuring a level playing field when it comes to a candidate’s age, so every opportunity is open to all. You can see current vacancies here.

What’s It Like to Work at The Workshop?

The Workshop knows that having good people matters. That’s why they invest so much in ensuring their employees are engaged and rewarded. From their legendary Tech, Talent & Tapas nights to Thirsty Thursday after work drinks, there are plenty of opportunities for fun and networking. Check out their Instagram feed to catch photos of a few recent events.

A Company Focused on Career Development

The Workshop is dedicated to helping its people grow. Employees have a learning budget, opening up opportunities for ongoing training and career development. Recently, the organisation launched its own Talent Competency Framework, a model helping employees clarify pathways to progression and putting them each firmly in the driver’s seat of their career. In short, when you join The Workshop, it’s all about progress.

The Highlight of The Year

The most eagerly anticipated event in the company calendar is Geek Week. This year, the week-long tech event was held across the London and Málaga offices, featuring inspiring talks from industry leaders, as well as a Hackathon. Finally, the week was rounded out with a selection of engaging activities to get employees involved, from e-sports tournaments to inflatable assault courses. This week of building and sharing tech knowledge is just one of the reasons why The Workshop is so special.

Diverse People Who Love to Innovate

Diversity drives innovation, and innovation is at the heart of everything they do, which is why they proudly describe their employees as “Inventors of Play”. Whether or not you are 50+, if you’re ready to play with top tech minds, The Workshop is ready to hear from you.

Partnering with 55/Redefined represents a major step towards The Workshop’s goal of building an age-diverse workforce and as our partnership develops, we look forward to moving fearlessly forward to lead the way in promoting inclusivity and championing age diversity.
