PDD Emerging Products, Osterley
Sky has always been at the heart of technology and how it can help people get more out of TV.
It understands better than any other company that a well-crafted technology experience will make people love the brand more. But TV is changing; everyday… it is becoming more and more digital, and more social; a lot of the paradigms that have been taken for granted for years are being challenged. How, when what people watch TV and whether or not they are watching TV - they could be playing, sharing, chatting with the content.
Almost anything is possible.
Our team is a small but growing group of highly collaborative designers - visual and UX who work across the current Sky digital offering. This involves constantly improving the current best in class platforms such as Sky+ and Sky Go, the refinement of the current set-top box EPG and the exploration of new ways of engaging customers using technology. The team works closely with product owners and business leads - in this instance the candidate should expect a high degree of interaction with senior personnel such as the Product Development Director and his team.
The right candidate for this job will be helping to define what this looks and feels like. Working with programme makers and third party technology platforms they will be creating new and exciting experiences that sit within the current Sky digital and social real estate, as well as, when necessary looking at new platforms. They will be creating unique HTML experiences that will sit within Sky partners' platforms such as Zeebox. These should in theory be re-purpose-able forming part of a suite of social experiences. The attitude is entrepreneurial and so there will be times when there will have to be fast turnarounds and rapid prototypes but there should always be time given to crafting work.
Aside from the technical capabilities, one of the key attributes will be a clearly demonstrable passion & enthusiasm for the latest developments in TV technology & social media & Wired/Mashable/Tech crunch addictions will be welcomed!
As a valued employee of Sky you will also benefit from Free Sky+HD premium package, an excellent Pension Scheme, Private Health Care, and a Share Save Scheme together with a range of other benefits.
