Job Description

Want to do the best work of your life? With 24 million customers in 6 countries, make your mark at Europe’s leading media and entertainment brand. A workplace where you can proudly be yourself; our people make Sky a truly exciting and inclusive place to work.

Data science is at the heart of decision making and customer treatments in Sky. We provide analytics to inform customer growth strategies, create tooling to drive personalised customer treatments and champion test and learn through experimentation.

Working in partnership with our Sky stakeholders including Customer Comms, Base Management, Content and Digital and collaborating with the other teams in DTA, we have built and successfully deployed intelligence into Sky and are already delivering realisable value into the business.

We gather a very large amount of data on customer behaviours and interactions and following significant team expansion are looking for data scientists to extract value from our data assets and maximise customer value across both our content engagement and customer management functions.

What you’ll do:

As a member of the Commercial Analytics & Experimentation team within the Applied Business Analytics Department, you’ll help drive decision making using the power of data and insights:

• Producing high quality, actionable insights through advanced analytics and cutting-edge predictive algorithms: work as a self-starter and be actively curious about what numbers are telling us and how they can be actioned upon to improve our customer plans
• Designing and implementing innovative insight roadmaps with your stakeholders to improve the way they make decisions: hypotheses-led problem solving to deliver solutions to business problems
• Developing relationships with stakeholders to reach a deep understanding of their business areas and support their objectives through best use of advanced analytics approaches
• Using Experimentation and Reinforcement Learning in data science to extract maximum value from data and produce cutting edge recommendations
• Evolving our internally developed web-based marketing analytics tools leveraging innovative techniques in software development and embedding machine learning algorithms so that our stakeholders can self-serve
• Strengthening our internal data science capabilities by continuously innovating and driving new ideas, building technology partnerships with our vendors, training and developing our people and creating a world class data science team at Sky

What you’ll bring:

• Previous experience in advanced data manipulation for modelling and/or data analysis in Python, SQL (essential)
• Machine learning – Supervised/unsupervised learning, regression, decision trees, random forests, boosting, SVM, clustering (essential)
• Knowledge or experience of working with Google Cloud Platforms products like BigQuery, GCS, Dataflow, Dataproc, Cloud ML or similar cloud solutions (essential)
• Web App and software development experience (desirable)
• Advanced Excel and PowerPoint with experience of visualisation tools (desirable)

The Rewards:

There’s a reason people can’t stop talking about #LifeAtSky. Our great range of rewards really are something special, here are just a few:

• Sky Q, for the TV you love all in one place
• A generous pension package
• Private healthcare
• Discounted mobile and broadband
• Access a wide range of exclusive Sky VIP rewards and experiences

How you’ll work:

We know the world has changed, and we want to offer our employees the chance to collaborate at our unique office spaces, whilst enjoying the convenience of working from home.

We’ve adopted a hybrid working approach to give more flexibility on where and how we work. You’ll find out more about what this means for this role during the recruitment process.

Your office base:

Osterley:

Our Osterley Campus is a 10-minute walk from Syon Lane train station. Or you can hop on one of our free shuttle buses that run to and from Osterley, Gunnersbury, Ealing Broadway and South Ealing tube stations. There’s also plenty of bike shelters and showers.

On campus, you’ll find 13 subsidised restaurants, cafes, and a Waitrose. You can keep in shape at our subsidised gym, catch the latest shows and movies at our cinema, get your car washed and even get pampered at our beauty salon.

Inclusion:

We take pride in our approach to diversity and inclusion: we’ve been recognised by The Times and Stonewall for this, and we’ve committed £30million to support the fight against racial injustice. We’ve also set ambitious targets for increasing ethnic diversity and representation throughout our organisation.

At Sky we don’t just look at your CV. We’re more focused on who you are and your potential. We also know that everyone has a life outside work, so we’re happy to discuss flexible working.

And we’ll do everything we can to support you during your application. If you need us to make any adjustments to our recruitment process, speak to our recruitment team who will be happy to support you.

Why wait?

Apply now to build an amazing career and be part of a brilliant team. We can’t wait to hear from you.

To find out more about working with us, search #LifeAtSky on social media. A job you love to talk about.

Just so you know: if your application is successful, we’ll ask you to complete a criminal record check. And depending on the role you have applied for and the nature of any convictions you may have, we might have to withdraw the offer.
