When I was challenged to double the size of the technology team at YouView I knew that, in a competitive technology industry, my challenge was to attract the very best candidates. Luckily, on demand TV service YouView is an easy sell as our technology teams – from developers and test engineers to project managers and technical architects – are working on cutting edge software development and leading the way in TV industry technological innovation. The company is planning big for the future after recently announcing five years of guaranteed funding from its shareholders the BBC, ITV, Channel 4, Channel 5, TalkTalk, BT and Arqiva.
We’ve just made two exciting additions to the service with Netflix, the world’s largest internet TV network, and Quest OD joining. New content partners and catch up services launch regularly with other recent additions including UKTV Play, S4C and Sky Store. YouView is also leading the way with accessibility updates and has a market-leading zoom function. It continues to draw on the skills of incredibly talented technologists to constantly innovate and evolve the on demand TV service.
