Want to do the best work of your life? With 24 million customers in 7 countries, make your mark at Europe’s leading media and entertainment brand. A workplace where you can proudly be yourself; our people make Sky a truly exciting and inclusive place to work.

Graphics and Data Solutions is part of TV Engineering within Tech UK. Its key role is to work closely with our core channel brands – primarily Sky Sports, Sky Sports News and Sky News – to deliver a range of solutions for Broadcast Television, Online Platforms and Interactive Services.

The Senior Systems Developer’s primary responsibility is the production, maintenance and ongoing development of software and hardware systems. Based in the Graphics and Data Solutions department, you will work with other members of the department, programme makers, other key areas of the Broadcast Services division, and other internal and external parties with the final goal of producing functional systems.

The systems developed can be standalone, integrated with other Graphics and Data solutions, or components of much larger projects. You will ensure that systems meet requirements of quality and timeliness, and that high standards of communication are maintained with your business stakeholders.

A significant part of your time will be spent in live production environments. You must be able to respond well under stress and think quickly under pressure. You must be able to communicate clearly with people in diverse roles.

The post requires a robust, pragmatic personality. Specifications are often minimal, and fast-moving requirements mean that you must be able to replan ‘on the fly’. Good management of time is critical in order to meet often tight deadlines.

Projects range in size from small business components written by one developer in a day, through to long term projects of over 10,000 development hours, and everything in between.

What you’ll do:

* Develop scalable applications and promote maintainability and extensibility.

* Provide technical input into software architecture design.

* Nurture software delivery principles and guidelines following industry best-practices.

* Provide a supportive and mentoring role to other members of the team.

* Enhance and support existing applications across the production platform.

* Work closely within a small self-organizing agile team.

What you’ll bring:

* A strong understanding of software design and development principles.

* An expert-level understanding of C#. Knowledge of building web front-ends using React and Redux technologies.

* Applied knowledge of GraphQL. Building services with SQL and Mongo databases.

* Exposure to development of cloud-based solutions.

* Experience with Scrum/Agile methodologies.

* Ability to communicate effectively and explain complex problems in a simple way.

Team Overview – Content, Tech & Innovation: We use the latest tech to create and distribute the best entertainment. In other words, we connect our customers to more of what they love all day, every day. You’ll be joining a proactive, forward-thinking and collaborative team setting the standard for excellent innovation.
