Job description

Want to do the best work of your life? Make your mark at Europe's leading entertainment brand. Our people make Sky a truly exciting and inclusive place to work - a place where you can be yourself and let your skills shine.

What you tell your friends you do

\"I'm one of the great minds at Sky helping to build brilliant products for our customers, collaborating with my colleagues and using great technologies to create super smart and easy to use products. I weave my magic using the latest Scala techniques to build the products and services our customers love."

What you'll really be doing

  • Real time data processing and RESTful microservices in Scala (Finch, Spray\/Akka HTTP and Play)

  • Helping develop the in-house recommendation engine which uses Kafka, Spark Streaming and Cassandra

  • Looking into how our recommendation engine can evolve with machine learning

  • Having the freedom to self-organise as part of a cross functional agile team

  • Refining the team processes to continuously integrate and working towards a continuously deliverable application

  • Championing best practices such as Pair Programming and TDD in order to develop clean, resilient code that performs at serious scale

  • Coaching and providing feedback to fellow developers

  • How will you be doing this?

  • Challenging technical choices, architecture, tools and processes

  • Reviewing code and give feedback that makes your team even better

  • Working in a motivated team, empowered to meet ambitious goals

  • Actively improving overall software quality

  • Contributing towards Sky's internal and external open source applications

  • The Rewards:

    There's a reason people can't stop talking about №LifeAtSky. Our great range of rewards really are something special. Here are just a few:

  • Sky Q, for the TV you love all in one place

  • Generous pension package and private healthcare plan

  • Discounted mobile and broadband

  • Access to thousands of LinkedIn Learning and Pluralsight courses

  • A permanent, secure contract from the start (no probationary period)

  • The Office:

    Our Osterley campus is a 10-minute walk from Syon Lane train station. Or you can hop on one of our free shuttle buses that run to and from Osterley, Chiswick Park, Gunnersbury, Acton Town and Ealing Broadway tube stations. There's also plenty of parking, bike shelters and showers.

    On campus you'll find six subsidised restaurants and a Waitrose. You can keep in shape at our subsidised gym, catch the latest shows and movies at our cinema, get your car washed and even get pampered at our beauty salon.

    Flexible Working:

    We don't just look at your CV. We're more focused on who you are and the potential you'll bring to Sky. We also know that everyone has a life outside work, so we're happy to support our people as much as we can with flexible working.

    Especially during these challenging times, we'll do everything we can to support you during your application. We're currently recruiting through a fully remote interview process and you'll also be able to start work with us remotely. But you'll need to be living in the UK at the time of start and able to work freely in the country.

    If you need us to make any adjustments to our recruitment process, speak to our recruitment team, who will be happy to support you.

    Why wait?

    Apply now to build an amazing career and be part of a brilliant team. We can't wait to hear from you.

    A job you love to talk about
