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. 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.

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 & Digital, 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 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 and diagnose issues when they occur.
Work in an iterative way using Agile delivery principles
What you’ll need to be

The one essential requirement is that you're a graduate, or soon will be. Our programme is designed to give you all the knowledge and experience you need, so it doesn’t matter what your degree is in.
Passion about technology
Able to develop scripted software in a modern web language
Familiar with pipeline automation and deployment frameworks such as Jenkins, Puppet, AWS and VMware automation
Comfortable using cloud-related technologies
Aware of Agile methodologies
It’s our people that make Sky Europe’s leading entertainment company. That’s why we work hard to be an inclusive employer, so everyone at Sky can be their best.

If you are successful in your application for this role, your appointment will be subject to receiving a positive outcome from your Criminal Record Check.
