tombola is a family owned company based in Sunderland which operates the UK's, Spain's and Italy's biggest on-line bingo websites (with offices in Madrid, Milan and Gibraltar) as well as websites in Denmark and Sweden with further countries to follow. 

Our approach is different to many of our competitors in that we produce all of our software ourselves; in fact just about every aspect of tombola is managed in-house. We have created all of our own games and take pride in our technical innovation and the strength of the development and design teams who use cutting edge technologies to drive the business forward.

The future of tombola couldn’t be brighter as we look to build on our existing market-leading presence.

  • Lead in the creation and adoption of security policies, standards and processes throughout tombola
  • Challenge yourself to identify solutions and controls which promote security automation best practices
  • Provide mentoring and guidance to less experienced members of the team to assist with their ongoing professional development
