Hit the ground running on this accelerated learning programme. Take a hands-on approach using agile methodologies. Work alongside experts in our DevOps team and make sure we stay ahead of the game.

Join the teams that built Sky Mobile, NOW TV and Sky Q. Create products used by millions. Take the lead on challenging and exciting projects. Collaborate with our software teams across the globe on video streaming platforms. With the support of a leading software delivery team, create high-quality, testable products designed to bring customers more of what they love. There’s only one place you’ll see action like this in your career – and that’s Sky.

A job you love to talk about

There’s plenty to talk about when working at Sky. Bumping into TV presenters. A different lunch menu every day. The content. The products. Time out to focus on career development. Only at Sky. See for yourself.

What you’ll be doing

On our DevOps programme you’ll create the best environments for our technology projects. Make sure our products remain available once they’re deployed to production. Be involved in scaling our applications. Find yourself in Group Product, Reliability Engineering or Enterprise Engineering, working on a wide range of technology projects across our business.

You’ll learn a lot in seven months. Spend your first four weeks understanding reliability engineering principles and learning what it takes to be a DevOps Engineer. Over the remaining six months, with our guidance, you’ll put your newly acquired skills into practice on live projects.

Once you’ve completed the programme, you’ll move one of our reliability engineering teams, which provides a variety of support and deployment activities to our Development, Quality Assurance and Release Management teams. Here you’ll help reduce costs, improve products, enhance service availability, tighten security, and boost our growth. Top quality is always a priority as you deliver effective, innovative software.

On this programme you’ll ensure software is delivered to an excellent standard within a busy agile team, where quality is the highest priority. This could include:

  • Providing and configuring the environments that our developers will use to create our software products
  • Be involved in scaling applications and products when popularity increases or where user demands peak expectations
  • Ensuring our deployed products remain available, reliable and diagnose issues when they occur
  • Work in an iterative way using Agile delivery principles.

Your development journey

You’ll enjoy a brand new, action-packed, learning experience with us. We’ll help you grow into a great future leader, with the right tools and support. The 2-year programme supports you with:

Growth - Every project and role you take on will be a chance to learn and grow. And you’ll be supported by passionate colleagues along the way.

Confidence - Whatever your background, you can make a valuable and valued contribution. You’ll build confidence by getting involved and stepping outside of comfort zone.

Belonging - You’re trusted to own your day, but there’s always someone on hand to make sure you succeed. With fellow grads, inspiring each other to think big and take action. Or with your manager and wider Sky team to help build your own unique career.

Plus, you’ll have access to a range of tools, from workshops to digital courses (like LinkedIn Learning), which will help you along the way.

It’s a journey and we want you to see your progress, so you’ll get your very own development report to track your success.

  • Familiar with pipeline automation and deployment frameworks such as Docker, Jenkins, Puppet, AWS, and VMware automation
