Think innovation. Think Sky. Our refreshing and imaginative approach has changed the face of UK television, making us one of the world’s largest broadcasters. Impressive? We haven’t even started yet. Right now we’re driving ambitious plans for growth as we pioneer new thinking and radical developments across the business.
Working as part of the Cross Product Strategy team, this role will have responsibility for establishing a unified strategy for connected devices and platforms engagement across Sky for all streaming video (OTT/IPTV). Working predominantly with Sky Go, NOW TV and Sky Store, this role will be instrumental in ensuring Sky services are delivering as effectively as possible across all target consumer electronics platforms.
You will work closely with internal stakeholders, making recommendations based on business requirements and technical/industry capabilities, and will ensure that Sky is positioned to maximise return on future developments in this area.
As this is a central role it will require the effective positioning of a shared approach across several Sky departments, with effective communication of ideas and concepts to key stakeholders being critical.
To succeed in this role, you will have an extensive background in the IPTV and Internet TV market – you will understand the complexities involved in delivering OTT premium content to multiple devices and platforms. You will be a highly analytical, customer focused individual, capable of working with a diversity of stakeholders in a highly dynamic environment.
This isn’t an engineering position, but you will have a strong technical understanding to be able to translate technical capabilities and concepts into reality by acting as a facilitator between our product development, strategic planning, sales & marketing and technology teams. You will be able to fully understand the technology behind all platforms, and will have a clear view of device/product limitations, and where boundaries can be pushed.
Ultimately, this role is responsible for formulating and articulating a clear, shared vision across Sky. As such, being credible with the technical teams will be as crucial as your ability to persuade and influence senior stakeholders across the business.
Our benefits package is designed to recognise the essential part you play in Sky’s success. We offer free Sky+HD, broadband and talk services; private medical insurance, generous holiday entitlements, a contribution pension scheme, a Share scheme so you can have a stake in Sky and our success plus Sky Choices a benefit scheme to help you make valuable tax & national insurance savings.
It’s our people that make Sky the UK and Ireland’s leading entertainment company. That’s why we work hard to be an inclusive employer, so everyone at Sky can be their best.
