What we do
We own the onboarding and account management front-ends across Tesco's online sites, serving millions of customers across UK and Republic of Ireland with their Grocery Home Shopping and more. We're also working on extending our services to more countries that Tesco operates in!
How we do it
We operate using the DevOps mindset and our engineers own the full stack; from developing React front-ends for our micro-apps to building Node backends to maintaining and monitoring Azure infrastructure as code. We use lightweight practices across the board, with highly autonomous sub-teams delivering specific outcomes with extensive test coverage at all layers. We continuously improve our code and our processes, and engineers get dedicated time for technical improvement and training days.
As a Software Development Manager, your primary responsibility is to build and maintain a passionate, engaged, and effective development team of engineers. You'll do this by taking a deep interest in the people that report to you, making sure they are happy, motivated, and challenged in what they are doing, guiding them to reach pragmatic technical solutions, and keep yourself close to the code (without becoming a blocker). You'll also take ownership when things go wrong but celebrate success collectively and, in short, act as a multiplier of your team’s effectiveness. Specifically, you will:
Collaborate with the Head of Software Development of your area on engineering roadmap and vision
You should be reliable in delivering commitments within a timeframe
The role will include ownership of the on-call rota to support our applications in production.

We are proud to have an inclusive culture at Tesco where everyone truly feels able to be themselves. At Tesco, we not only celebrate diversity, but recognise the value and opportunity it brings. We’re committed to creating a workplace where differences are valued, and make sure that all colleagues are given the same opportunities. We’re a big business with diverse working patterns and many business areas which means that we can find something that works for you. Everyone is welcome at Tesco.
We have recently announced that we are moving to a more blended working week – combining office and remote working. Our offices continue to be where we connect, collaborate and innovate. Talk to us about how this can work for you.
