iOS Developer @ Sky

September 2014 - Present

Currently working on the Sky Go and Sky Q native iOS apps which serve millions of customers a day by providing them with the ability to enjoy Sky TV on the go. I also actively maintain and release some of our internal iOS frameworks/libraries.

In my early days I had the opportunity to build both internal and customer facing iOS + web applications for the Sky Academy and have volunteered at technology fairs on behalf of Sky to help get kids engaged with coding (Big Bang Fair). I worked primarily with the MEAN stack and native iOS development, but also experimented with cross platform technologies such as Ionic and React-Native.
