The Tesco Data and Analytics offering is based on our huge pool of business data collated by our Data Engineering colleagues and hosted on TAP (our Hadoop and Teradata platforms, with Azure based group data sharing, and associated Middleware platforms). Thousands of colleagues from across our Stores and Head Offices are able to access our data to derive meaning, make decisions and model new ideas to help them deliver more value for our customers.
As part of the D&A Platform team the STPM position is pivotal in shaping the direction and driving delivery of changes that move our underlying technology forwards in the coming years.
The successful candidate must show they can deliver projects and be part of technical steering and service function in Data Platforms.
Our project delivery relies on great working relationships with several internal Platform teams, multiple Data Engineering/Analytics and Data Science teams as well as our Product and Business teams. This is a large and complex environment providing plenty of interest and challenge from both a people and technology perspective. We are embarked upon a transformation that takes TAP from a packaged Hadoop solution to one that relies far more on Open Source/loosely coupled software linked to new hardware and object storage. We are focused on projects that deliver change and provide stable service on multiple instances linked to different business requirements.
Whilst specific responsibilities will be dependent upon the changing needs of the Tesco business the following provides an overview of the role’s key responsibilities and measures:
We offer excellent benefits that help make Tesco a great place to work! These include but are not limited to:
Our vision at Tesco is to become every customer’s favourite way to shop, whether they are at home or out on the move. Our core purpose is “Serving our customers, communities and planet a little better every day”. Serving means more than a transactional relationship with our customers. It means acting as a responsible and sustainable business for all stakeholders, for the communities we are part of, and for the planet.
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.
