Java Developer – Sky Technology, Leeds (Java, Developer)

Java Developer

Sky is Europe's leading entertainment company and serves 21 million customers across five countries. We offer the best and broadest range of content, deliver market-leading customer service and use innovative technology to give customers a better TV experience.

Without our awesome in-house Technology team, these game-changing innovations wouldn’t be possible. They develop pioneering products and services to give every one of our customer’s experiences they’ll love – when and wherever they want.

We have multiple opportunities for Senior Developers across our squads to join us to enable the rapid delivery of high quality, customer focused services to meet and exceed customer experience and usability requirements.

The Requirements:

Working in Tribes and Squads, our new teams have a real ‘start up’ feel and there’s loads of room for development, but with the backing and products you can only get from one of Europe’s leading entertainment companies. You’ll have the chance to use cutting edge tools and technologies to create rich user experiences; all whilst working in an Agile environment.

At Sky, we love to share what we are doing and how we are doing it, whether this is through brown bag sessions, guilds, chapters or show and tell. We even hold our own external tech events where you can be involved as much as you like from helping promote to being a speaker. There is much more to being a developer at Sky than just writing code.

As part of a dynamic squad, you will have a voice that will be listened to and help influence the shape and direction of product development through daily stand ups on the latest high profile projects. You will receive the development and support required to help take you to the next level of your career whilst working with the hottest technologies. There is also the opportunity to be involved in brown bag sessions, guilds, chapters and the external tech events we host.

We'll expect you to have a solid understanding of Java development as well as experience with XP principles such as pair programming, CI, TDD and OO development and design patterns.

The perks:

As a valued employee of Sky, you’ll benefit from a free Sky Q premium package (one off payment required for installation), an excellent pension scheme, private health care and a share save scheme. There’s a great range of other benefits to fit around your needs too.
