Betfair Chief Technical Officer Paul Cutter has unveiled the company’s new technical development offices in the Romanian city of Cluj. The Cluj development office will staff 330 Betfair employees and will become the operator’s largest technical development centre.
Betfair Romania will be central to the operator’s plans on focusing on in-house product and operational development over third party supplier agreements.

The Cluj development centre will specialise in a number of Betfair capabilities such as programming, information security, IT infrastructure, technical support and project/product management.
