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

As a Scrum Master/Agile Coach you will play a pivotal role in developing agile maturity across the Identity directorate, alongside our transformation and scaling ambitions. This is an entrepreneurial role that will be focused on driving and embedding agile and lean ways of working within engineering squads, whilst also collaborating and contributing to the success of the wider team.

Group Technology Digital Transformation

Want to create a smooth and uninterrupted digital experience for millions of customers? Then our Group Technology Digital Transformation is the team for you. Agile, collaborative, data-driven and diverse, our team works on brilliant products like NOW and Peacock. That’s not even the best part. We get to build our own software and our work has a global stage. Our team also delivers exceptional customer experiences and defines digital first propositions in customer journeys across all channels.

  • Work alongside mixed discipline squads on a sophisticated global identity platform, with multiple components and customer journeys; ensuring high value, frequent and smooth delivery becomes a recurring cycle.
  • Be a champion for agile/lean adoption and transformation. Mentor, coach and develop squads through continuous improvement cycles; use health checks and data to track delivery and make informed decisions and optimisations on progress, performance, and quality.
  • Engage stakeholders and facilitate Scrum/Agile ceremonies to ensure key parties are aware of progress and are in-sync. Identify impediments early and support squads with unblocking and resolving constraints.
  • Support Product Owners with the ongoing creation and prioritisation of clear roadmaps, OKRs and backlogs. Ensure these are highly visible and understood within squads and encourage collaboration and close partnerships between Product and Delivery.
  • Define guardrails that set the right expectations for the transparency and quality of work items, so they can be planned, developed, and completed efficiently during product delivery.
  • Build a trusting, motivated and supportive environment, with an emphasis on problem-solving and a growth mindset. Facilitate discussion, decision making, and conflict resolution, so that everyone has a chance to thrive.
  • Facilitate the right solution to a challenge, rather than the fastest, and ensure squads learn/grow from mistakes.

What you’ll bring

  • Previous experience in a Scrum Master or Agile Coach role.
  • Experience working within a fast-paced software development or engineering team; great understanding of the SDLC, technology-focused delivery, and the demands it can bring.
  • Experience working in an Agile-Lean environment, including working with one or more agile frameworks or approaches, such as Scrum, Kanban, XP, SAFe, LeSS, DevOps, TDD, BDD, Paired Programming etc.
  • Strong leadership, communication, listening, negotiating and influencing skills. Able to steer decisions in a fast-paced commercial environment.
  • Hands on experience coaching teams, and empowering teams to improve.
  • Practical experience using data and metrics (throughput, aging WIP, story points, velocity etc.) for forecasting and analysing performance, and to increase levels predictability within a delivery environment.
  • A self-starter with a real passion for software and technology. Maintains a positive attitude whilst juggling multiple tasks simultaneously.

The rewards

There’s one thing people can’t stop talking about when it comes to : the perks. Here’s a taster:

  • Sky Q, for the TV you love all in one place
  • The magic of Sky Glass at an exclusive rate
  • A generous pension package
  • Private healthcare
  • Discounted mobile and broadband
  • A wide range of Sky VIP rewards and experiences

Our spacious tech hub is less than a mile from Leeds train station. There’s plenty of parking in the surrounding streets and at the nearby CitiPark.

Need a break? You can blow off steam over a game of pool or table tennis, and stay fit at our subsidised gym.

Inventive, forward-thinking minds come together to work in Tech, Product and Data at Sky. It’s a place where you can explore what if, how far, and what next.

But better doesn’t stop at what we do, it’s how we do it, too. We embrace each other’s differences. We support our community and contribute to a sustainable future for our business and the planet.

If you believe in better, we’ll back you all the way.
