The Core Client Team is responsible for building the playback-related functionality in Sky’s OTT products. We work closely with the teams in Sky Go, NOW TV, Sky Sports and others to ensure that common functionality is built in a reliable, scalable and efficient way. We own the internally open source SDK which our colleagues across Sky use to achieve effortless playback on Windows, macOS, Android, iOS, Samsung TV, LG TV, PlayStation, Xbox and Roku. The SDK abstracts the complexity of achieving playback on these devices and provides a single, simple to use API.
Some of our most recent releases have included subtitles, audio switching and the ability to provide uninterrupted playout in the event of a critical platform failure. We are now looking for talented engineers to join us in finding new innovative ways to build features and improve upon our video players.
