Head of Technology, Sky
Named as one of the UK’s Top 100 women working in Technology right now, Natasha is the Head of Technology for Digital Trading at Sky, working at Sky’s Leeds Dock campus.
The Digital Trading tribe are responsible for supporting Sky’s eCommerce platform (www.sky.com/shop), using the latest technologies to deliver journeys that allow customers to purchase Sky’s products easily. We’re big on continuous improvement and iterative Agile development, using data to understand user behaviour in order to optimise the site.
A bonifide Technology geek, Natasha has extensive experience working with BBC, ITV, O2 Telefonica and the NSPCC. She frequently speaks on Agile transformation and encouraging more women to sidestep into a great Tech career.
It seems each week that there is another report highlighting Skills shortages in the UK digital sector and/or around the gender imbalance issues within Tech. But how do you help change these issues and get brilliant new talent into your business in a highly competetive marketplace? Equally how do you develop your existing teams skills?
Natasha will talk about her experiences working at Sky as a Head of Technology discussing best practices that Sky are leading on in this sector.
