After completing a placement in software at university, Ciaran knew a career in software development was for him.  With a love of video games, he applied for our Software Development graduate programme after ‘’viewing a bright and colourful advert on TV”.  The application process was as exciting as it was eye opening, with constructive feedback provided every step of the way.

Since starting, Ciaran has worked on projects such as My Broadband, an application that lets customers see their broadband speeds, usage, and package information, as well as other applications and websites.  Ciaran explains this project has been very fulfilling as he working on something that he actually uses at home.

What Ciaran most enjoys about working for Sky is being part of the Sky community, being able to work flexibly where necessary and enjoying the many restaurants and facilities at Sky HQ in Osterley.
