    Technology at ITV

    At ITV, we’re passionate about the same things you are. New tech. Typed functional programming. Pushing the boundaries of technology. Lean. Agile. Elm. Scala. Java. The Cloud. Tech is at the heart of our ambitious new strategy and set to shape our future.

    We’re scaling up ITV Online, the home of ITV Hub. We’re in the early stages of transforming the architecture behind our ATS systems. And we’re taking on new challenges from using new streaming platforms and integrating our shows with smart connected homes to looking at how to distribute our shows globally and direct from our studios.

    There’s more to itv than first meets the eye. Technology is at the heart of what we do. If you love tech – you’ll love it here. So, head over to ITV's Youtube to learn more about technology at ITV.

    Smart Working: Flex your Days and Hours

    We want to be the most flexible employer in the media. It means you can fit your work around your life and your life around your work.

    Many of the team choose to work from home for a day or two a week – or they flex the hours they work. We call it Smart Working and when we’re at home we use Slack, Google Hangouts and Google Docs to collaborate. With an ITV supplied MacBook Pro you can just about work anywhere with a good internet connection.
