Innovation is at the very heart of our business – we’re lean, have a culture that believes in trying things out and learning through doing and take a truly Agile approach to the way we work. We've helped push boundaries with industry firsts like Sky+ HD, Sky 3D and, our latest development, Sky Go.
At Sky we use Agile methodology to help us deliver bespoke cutting edge solutions to millions of customers across the web, mobile, broadcast and interactive world.
We’ve also moved beyond traditional testing and developing and use the likes of Groovy & Grails, Cucumber, Ruby, Python, PostgreSQL, Jetty and Cloud computing.
