Software and Product Development roles at Sky

Within these teams, it’s all about looking at new and exciting ways of getting our entertainment to our customers. Here, you’ll focus on one of two areas. In Product Development, you’ll target the concept side of the equation. Working with embedded C on a Linux platform, you’ll take ideas from development-stage prototypes to products that will be seen in over 12 million households. Driving the next generation of online and streaming products, this diverse and constantly evolving technical environment will push your skills to the full. In Software Engineering, you’ll help write brilliant, incredibly detailed software that delivers for our customers. Using Agile in scalable teams, many using continuous deployment, you’ll work with a range of languages including Grails, Ruby, Java, PHP, Scala, Groovy, Cassandra, Heroku, Node and JavaScript.

It all adds up to an area that just bursts with innovation – and has won the awards to prove it. Sky Go was voted App of the Year for two consecutive years, as well as Digital Media Service of the Year. Plus, T3 Magazine voted our Set Top Boxes ‘Entertainment Gadget of the Year’ while What Hi-Fi? named them ‘Product of the Year’.

You’ll be a key part of a fantastically collaborative team who really pull together when the pressure’s on. And because we rely so heavily on technology and innovation, we’ll make sure you have access to the best resources and training.
