LeoVegas will launch a new technology hub in Poland as the operator looks to bolster its technological development and innovation.
The Stockholm-based company is investing in a facility in the Polish capital Warsaw that will host 60 new developers to “accelerate the development of a next-generation platform”.
Working alongside the group’s existing teams in Sweden, the UK and the Netherlands, LeoVegas’ Warsaw Tech Hub will develop the company’s proprietary Rhino platform, a player account management (PAM) system.
This platform is used to handle all player data, payment transactions, payment integrations and games from iGaming providers across the entire LeoVegas brand portfolio.
The new technology center forms a “key part of the group’s strategy to stay at the forefront of new technology and innovation,” according to a LeoVegas statement. However, the group’s services will remain unavailable in Poland.
“LeoVegas’ success, and the award-winning gambling experience we offer our customers, is driven by our innovative mindset and proprietary Rhino platform,” commented Mattias Wedar, Director of Products and Technology, LeoVegas Group.
“Our new center in Warsaw is a key part of our strategy to stay at the forefront of innovation, new product development and payments, delivering a highly personalized experience to our customers. Our new operations center will kick-start this next phase. of development”.
The operator’s recruitment effort in Warsaw comes amid ongoing recruitment efforts across the group’s various offices. Approximately one-third of LeoVegas’ workforce is dedicated to technology and product development, reflecting the company’s “strong focus on technology”.
