What do we do?

With the scale of the leader and the mindset of a challenger, we lead betting and gaming into the future. We are more than 600 people creating innovative, fun, and safe software engineering solutions for the betting industry.

About

How do we do it?

  • Always questioning, always inventing, always developing – both ourselves and our technology. We pursue excellence through a continuous learning philosophy. We’re constantly exploring new technologies, languages, and frameworks to go beyond our own limits.
  • We work by Agile-oriented methodologies where flexibility, autonomy, and the freedom to do your best are always encouraged.
  • We care about people. Diversity and inclusion play an important role in our organisational culture, and so do working-life balance benefits.
  • A nap room. Video games. An organic garden. An auditorium for more than 300 people. It’s not just a workplace, it’s a growth place, which is constantly named as the best place to work in Portugal.
  • Above all, we do it together. A strong and shared working culture, based on authentic values is what makes us more than a job…a way of being.

Why are we doing it? 

  • For ourselves. Growing – individually and as a team – is the most exciting part of all.
  • For our customers. Understanding their needs and exploring the best tech solutions to face them is a thrilling game.
  • For our industry. Creating powerful software, which is capable of making an impact in the way we experience and live entertainment is what moves us.
  • For our world. Because we can always make it better.

How did we get here?

Blip was created in Porto, in 2009. In 2012, we became part of the Betfair Group, based in London. Then, in early 2016, Betfair joined Paddy Power, to become one of the largest and fastest-growing online betting and gaming operators in the world. In 2020, the company merged with the Stars Group.

Today we are part of the Flutter Entertainment Group. This was a coming together of betting and gaming companies who never stopped creating new and exciting ways to experience entertainment.
