Welcome to IT-Heads, a soon to be launched IT recruitment business for the Gaming and Gambling sectors!
If you’re looking for employment in this exciting and rewarding sector, this is the site for you. Everybody, from fresh graduates, those seeking a career shift and even experienced IT managers and technicians can find a range of job opportunities here on IT-Heads.at.
Employment opportunities in the gaming and casino sectors have been growing around the world at a rapid rate, and this trend is expected to continue. The reason? Gambling and gaming restrictions are still being relaxed by many governmental bodies as they look to profit on the high taxation potential of this industry. As the scene opens up – both online and in land-based casinos around the world – so too do the employment opportunities.
IT-Heads will in the near future feature jobs in countries with already developed sectors, with a focus on the United Kingdom and Europe, as well as some more exotic destinations with developing gambling sectors in need of skilled IT personnel.
Online vs Offline Casinos – what’s the difference?
If you are looking to expand your horizons and find employment in the casino and gambling sector, you might first want to consider what type of casino you’d like to work for.
This site plans to host a directory of jobs working for companies who run both online and offline casinos. In fact, some larger, better-established gaming brand names even run both types as they seek to take over the market. To make the distinction, an offline casino is just a traditional, land-based/brick and mortar establishment. Players physically walk in, exchange their cash for chips and then can play at any number of games, including blackjack, poker, roulette or video slot machines.
Online casinos, on the other hand, can be accessed by players from all over the world via the internet on their PCs, laptops, smartphones and tablets. However, most of the games, rules and pay-out systems are identical to those in which you would find in a land-based casino. For example, the odds of landing pocket aces in a game of poker would be exactly the same if you were playing online compared to in a land-based casino.
While there is a growing demand for IT positions within the online casino sector, which over the past decade has been expanding exponentially, there are also various IT-based roles available for those wanting to work in a land-based casino. In the last couple of years the online gaming industry has moved into HTML5 techlogy, primarily due to the growth in mobile phone technology. Opportunities for HTML5 developers are at an all time high, as a number of leading casino software suppliers convert their back catalogues to HTML5 compliant mobile casino games (see examples) that work across a broad spectrum of popular mobile devices.

Types of Casino IT jobs on IT-Heads.at
Most of the jobs traditionally associated with casinos around the world would tend to include casino managers, croupiers, cashiers, floor managers and service staff. However, this site focuses more on the ‘behind-the-scenes’ jobs that generally require an advanced level of technical skill – although some internships and entry-level positions can be found, too. These can be general IT maintenance roles, specialized game coders or IT roles based in accounting and finance.
Some of the most common jobs are likely to include game producers, front-end and back-end developers, IT software engineers, mobile and app developers, database managers and IT roles within finance such as statistical analysers and accountants.
