Data Science is at the heart of decision making and customer treatments in Sky. We provide analytics to inform customer growth strategies, build tooling to drive personalised customer treatments and champion test and learn through experimentation.
On our Data Science programme, you’ll have exposure across the business as you work with our stakeholders to help drive decision making using the power of data and insights.
