Sky operates an agile environment across all squads and tribes. Each team contributes to internal open source projects within a continuous delivery environment including company wide solutions such as Sky’s front-end toolkit and GraphQL common API layer.

Responsibilities

As a Senior Developer on the Sky Digital Help team I had a wide variety of responsibilities from building software for high capacity, high traffic, high availability websites to empowering others by mentoring and guiding them within their own career progression.

During my time at Sky I have been involved in some of the largest pieces of work the Help team has undertaken. I was central to the technical direction of the new Broadband Diagnostic project - currently the most advanced diagnostic tool on offer from UK ISPs. I was actively involved in the build and influential in the solution and release of the successful Sky Help rewrite project. I also continually worked on reducing legacy applications and overall real estate by decommissioning and migrating applications.
