Job Description

We believe in better. And we make it happen.

Better content. Better products. And better careers.

Working in Tech, Product or Data at Sky is about building the next and the new. From broadband to broadcast, streaming to mobile, SkyQ to Sky Glass, we never stand still. We optimise and innovate.

We turn big ideas into the products, content and services millions of people love.

And we do it all right here at Sky.

The opportunity is for a Group Enterprise Architect, to join our new Group Architecture team. This is not a BAU enterprise architecture role but a “green field” opportunity for a practitioner who is keen to be part of building something new.

What you'll do:

Working as part of the Group Architecture team you will:

  • help to define and deliver Sky’s evolving enterprise architecture in this highly federated, fast paced, innovative, agile organisation

  • work across Sky’s territories & functions to support business & technology leaders in understanding, monetising and operationalising existing, new and emerging technologies

  • help to guide the enterprise through transformation and optimisation initiatives within our enterprise agile framework, in the process helping Sky delight our customers, grow revenue, optimise costs and mitigate risks

  • develop IT strategy, target architectures, architecture tooling and methods, governance, innovation and technology optimisation across the group.

What you'll bring:

You are a naturally collaborative, inquisitive, ambitious, energetic, “hands on”, self-starter with a real passion for Enterprise Architecture. Likely you will have had extensive experience in all or most of the following:

  • performing an EA role in an organisation with multiple divisions or business units

  • working with business & technology leadership and multiple stakeholders to deliver Enterprise Architecture at a portfolio level, aligning commercial and IT strategy, ideally within a SAFe context

  • architecture and design governance, business case development and strategic planning

  • background in business transformation, change and/or enterprise technology environments within a large end-user organisation or consultancy

  • detailed and up-to-date knowledge of at least one enterprise technology domain, such as integration, digital or cloud

  • working with other enterprise functions to develop capabilities and deliver strategic outcomes, such as risk, cyber, service management, finance, devops, etc.

The rewards

There's one thing people can't stop talking about when it comes to #LifeAtSky: 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

Inclusion & how you'll work:

Recognised by The Times and Stonewall, we take pride in our approach to diversity and inclusion. Investing in society, fighting racial injustice and setting ambitious targets for representation at Sky.

We’ve embraced hybrid working and split our time between unique office spaces and the convenience of working from home. You’ll find out more about what hybrid working looks like for your role later on in the recruitment process.

Your office space:


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 are 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.

We'd love to hear from you

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.

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.
