We believe in better. And we make it happen.

Better content. Better products. And better careers.

Working in Tech, Product or Data at Sky is about building the next and the new. From broadband to broadcast, streaming to mobile, SkyQ to Sky Glass, we never stand still. We optimise and innovate.

We turn big ideas into the products, content and services millions of people love.

And we do it all right here at Sky.

What you’ll do:

  • Demonstrate an ability to come up with innovative ideas, solve problems creatively and shape these into logical, coherent solutions that centre around our users’ needs.
  • Work with stakeholders in the delivery function including analysts, engineers, solution architects and business areas to represent and advocate the value of UX design and User Centred Design practices. 
  • Help to maintain an efficient design delivery process, through regular clear communication with delivery teams and consistently delivering to schedule.
  • Demonstrate a knowledge and desire to investigate, innovate and develop emerging design, UX and technology trends.
  • Work closely with the Design team to ensure visibility and provide input into group design critiques.
  • Act as mentor to UX Designers and share knowledge across the team.
  • Work with a team of UI Designers to ensure any UX design changes help to compliment the overall user experience and journey

What you’ll bring:

  • Several years’ experience showing a strong UX background in interpreting complex business requirements and translating sometimes competing business objectives into designs which meet user needs.
  • Able to work from a high-level architectural level right down to detailed interactions
  • Excellent communication and interpersonal skills to convey complex design concepts clearly to different delivery skill sets within the organization.
  • Proven experience of UCD design principles and research methodologies, with an ability to create user journeys, user flows, sitemaps, wireframes and interactive prototypes.
  • Experience working within a high-pressure delivery environment, and in a highly collaborative approach with multiple delivery skill sets.
  • Experience of running discovery and design workshops, helping drive alignment and innovation through experiences we deliver.

Team Overview:

UK&I Technology:

Ground-breaking projects. Innovative tech. Top innovation. Join our UK&I Technology team and you’ll work across technology projects that drive our TV, broadband, mobile and Sky Connect services. You’ll be at the heart of delivering the technology roadmaps that support our UK and Ireland businesses, with a focus on customer innovations for Sky Glass. That’s not all. You’ll also design, develop and deliver digital services for millions of customers across the UK.

How you’ll work – hybrid working:

The world has changed. And so have we. We’ve embraced hybrid working and split our time between unique office spaces and the convenience of working from home.

You’ll find out more about what hybrid working looks like for your role later on in the recruitment process.

Where you’ll work:

Livingston Watermark House:

Our lively campus is a free shuttle bus away from Livingston South train station and the town centre. Plus there’s onsite parking available for cars, motorbikes and bicycles.

You’ll be well fed at our subsidised canteen, and you can keep in shape at our onsite gym – or play a game of pool or table tennis.

Inclusion:

Recognised as an ‘Inclusive Top 50 Employer’ and a ‘Times Top 50 Employer for Women’, we’re working hard to ensure we’re a truly inclusive place to work. This means we don’t just look at your CV. We’re more focused on who you are and the potential you’ll bring to Sky. We also know that everyone has a life outside work, so we’re happy to discuss flexible working!

And we’ll do everything we can to support you during your application. If you need us to make any adjustments to our recruitment process, speak to our recruitment team who will be happy to support you
