About the role

TESCO’s fulfilment operations are powered by one of the largest distribution and fulfilment networks in the world. Store Fulfilment is the backbone of the business and at the forefront of serving our Customers. Our fulfilment network ensures our Customers get their shopping, when, where and how they want it. Our fulfilment operations are on a progressive journey to embrace automation and modernise our applications, with technology at the heart of our industry leading plans.

We are looking for a Senior Product Manager to be part of this journey, sharing our ambition to deliver for our Customers; be curious and passionate about unleashing the potential of Automation in our Distribution and Fulfilment network. We are looking for a product manager who has a proven track record, ideally in fulfilment, across both Front (e.g. Colleague & Management Applications) and the Backend which drives them (e.g. API, business logic & algorithms). If that sounds exciting, we’d love to hear from you.

You will be responsible for

  • Own products which enable the automation of Fulfilment Operations and through those products influence and support the Fulfilment Automation strategy
  • Evolve and drive the product vision, strategy and long-term roadmap and execute it well by constantly managing the stakeholder’s expectations and working through dependencies across multiple products/ teams.

  • Provide leadership and direction to cross functional team(s)
  • Drive the acceptance and adoption of ideas and improvements with product teams and engineering stakeholders
  • Effectively outline and explain new product needs to the engineering team using user stories with personas and acceptance tests and help the team in breaking down complex work into smaller, deliverable chunks of value.
  • Steer sprint/ release planning sessions by collaborating with engineering counterparts to plan sprints/ releases that deliver maximum business value in least effort
  • This role will best suit an individual who enjoys working as part of a team, is well organised, pragmatic and a lateral thinker with a curious mind who is motivated to challenge the status quo, make change for the better and, most importantly, puts our customers first. 

You will need

  • Product Management experience in a B2B and/or Fulfilment environment
  • Experience in building Front End products (e.g. Colleague & Management Apps) and Back End products (e.g. APIs, business logic or algorithms).
  • Experience defining workflow management tools to create operational efficiency in enterprise scale systems
  • Proven track record of owning Problem Statements/Opportunities and achieving committed Outcomes
  • Proven ability to solve business problems through discovery and hypothesis driven approach
  • Proven ability to absorb and draw conclusions from multiple inputs and data points to refine and define the User Needs
  • Experience in/and understanding of User Experience (UX) Research driven product development
