The first mission you're guaranteed to run into a Sectopod will be when you are investigating the Blacksite Vial location, the completion of which will earn you:

The front courtyard of the objective building will always be patrolled by a Sectopod so make sure your team is bunched together by the time you get to the bridges leading to the building.

Team composition is obviously a personal choice but I can highly recommend trying to make sure you have a Sharpshooter with at least Lightning Hands (preferably with Fan Fire), a Grenadier with Shredder and Chain Shot and a Specialist with at least one charge of Combat Protocol left. Bluescreen and/or AP rounds will also make this much easier.

However you're set up, the Sectopod will more than likely detect your approach as you get across the bridge and advance towards you. Simply start attacking it with any armor shredding attacks you have first and you shouldn't have too much trouble.
