About the Role
Software Development Managers (SDMs) establish and sustain the environment for development to exist and succeed. Their primary focus is to hire, retain and develop our Software Development Engineers (SDEs) through creating and aligning individual’s short- and long-term objectives and development plan alongside the goals of the wider team and business. They evolve the right tailored approaches to manage and develop their SDEs including regular 1-2-1 meetings, identifying mentors or mentees and providing impromptu coaching inputs. SDMs help split the scope of work across one or more SDEs depending on their strengths and areas of improvement. They actively work to set the SDEs up for success, providing course corrections as necessary. SDMs also help SDEs get the right mentorship to ensure they grow more expertise and to address any weaknesses hindering their effectiveness.
About the team
Tesco’s xAPI (Experience API) powers Tesco’s online shopping, enabling customers to discover and shop online from diverse client applications & devices i.e. web, mobile-apps, tills in-store, scan-as-you-shop, tablets, voice assistants etc. We, the xAPI team, build products that provide the experience APIs (GraphQL) for building client applications and handle all the device traffic to support the user experience for the end-user’s shopping lifecycle from product discovery to purchase to returns and refunds, shopping history. We build, develop and maintain massive scale, highly performant REST/GraphQL API services, backend-for-frontend services that enable ease of client application development and our success is the difference between millions of happy customers or millions of missed opportunities.
Team structure and technology processes
Delivery and stakeholder management
SDMs deliver the right outcomes and collaborate with the appropriate stakeholders and customers, whether directly responsible for the functional delivery of a team or working across multiple teams. They build healthy empathetic relationships to arrive at consensus and overcome any conflicts. Within their operating domain, they demonstrate ownership over the relevant areas of work and can also reach out to, and execute effectively with, peers and other stakeholders when needed to ensure the success of broader, more complex outcomes. SDMs are accountable for the slices they own in a program and proactively identify risks, propose mitigations and get them reviewed with their manager, stakeholders and customers. They also know when to ask for help or escalate.
SDM interacts continuously with his end users and product managers to keep them current with new possibilities of technology applications and value it brings for our customers. SDM drives architecture, design, implementation, adoption and re-usability of such new technology by sharing their work with peer SDMs and create culture of innovation and technical excellence within his team and at Tesco at broader level.
