What Makes Videoslots an Employer of Choice
Videoslots Casino might be an industry leader setting the bar to an all-new high, but we know that could not reach anything of the sort if it were not for our employees. But that does bring a question – what makes Videoslots truly an employer of choice? After all, you might know how the iGaming industry is one of the fastest growing both locally here in Malta and internationally, bringing about significant growth through both revenue and job opportunities. So, what makes our company the right choice for you? Of course, we can tell you about our impressive Employee Value Proposition – and don’t worry, we will – but we might as well start from the beginning and point out our home island of Malta, and how it turned itself into the ideal location for the iGaming industry.
First off, why move to Malta in the first place? This island has proven itself the right place for the iGaming industry, being described as a jurisdiction of primary establishment for most operators within the industry. For the interested, Malta offers online gambling operators licenses designed as a solution to regulate, rather than restrict, the affairs of the industry. This makes for a transparent approach that ensures a safe and well-regulated market.
That said, as an employee you are perhaps more interested in the personal benefits the island can bring. And just as well, since Malta’s central Mediterranean location brings a warm and sunny climate with an average of 300 days of sunshine a year! It also offers easy accessibility to all manner of leisure and entertainment, as well as numerous on-going activities around the islands. The result is strong work-life balance, with numerous beaches for relaxation and partying during the summer. English is an official language, and the island has reliable flight connections across the European continent.
Roles in the iGaming Industry
The iGaming industry has a different set of roles that need to be filled if the company wants to operate. As such, here at Videoslots we need sufficient staff able to understand, adapt and implement changes for the benefit of the running of the company. We need skilled and qualified individuals across various fields. The Product team houses a diverse group working in casino, product, UX and graphic design roles. IT keeps Videoslots running as it works in the background on a number of complex issues relating to our infrastructure, while the cross-functional development teams own and drive the continuous improvement of our products as it remains on the lookout for new technologies. Legal & Compliance keeps our business out of trouble by ensuring regulatory compliance, and the front liners of the Responsible Gaming team advises and guides players on how to have fun in a safe manner. Finance makes sure all third parties and our people get paid on time and Payment & Risk protects Videoslots from fraudsters. The Marketing department handles advertising, acquisition, communications and customer relations and the product-savvy team at Customer Service answers customer queries and finds solutions to their challenges. Currently these teams have nearly 200 employees from 33 nationalities, with an average age of 31 and an average of 2 years of service.
