  • Application developer Download job

    The Content Development & Innovation team works to make the development, testing and deployment of content and services on the YouView platform as quick and easy as possible.


    The team works with the wider business to bring new features and capabilities to the platform, ensuring this is done in a manner that makes them readily adoptable by content providers.  The team also helps content providers bring new services and content onto the platform and makes them aware of the potential of the platform to allow them to improve current services and/or offer completely new kinds of propositions.  This requires regular, often highly collaborative engagement with the development teams of current and potential new content providers.  And to help accelerate content providers’ development activities, the team produces and makes available reference code, example packaged media, documentation and other support material.
