Sky's opportunities for STEM graduates

Asha Kumaran, Recruitment Business Partner, introduces us to the various opportunities for STEM graduates at Sky and covers rotations abroad.

Change the way customers interact with the NOW interface. Collaborate with our software teams across the globe on video streaming platforms. Create software technology that influences the way they watch their favourite shows. Use cutting-edge technology and contribute to the success of current and future products. Develop software that underpins our products and improves how we work. Make an impact and get all the support you need to do your best work. There’s only one place you’ll see action like this in your career – and that’s Sky.

What you’ll be doing

The software development programme might see you create the NOW interface, develop capabilities for our front-end platforms or become a full stack developer for our search and recommendations team.

You’ll learn a lot on this seven-month programme. After just five weeks, you’ll be familiar with the major software engineering principles, Java development, test-driven development, continuous build, and integration. Over the remaining six months, with our guidance, you’ll put your newly acquired skills into practice on live projects, before moving into a delivery team where you will continue your career as an Associate Software Developer.

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:

  • Deliver and support the development of our software products
  • Team up with software professionals to create high-quality, testable products designed to engage our customers
  • Produce software through iteration using Agile delivery principles.
