For the last 24 months, Tesco has been scaling rapidly both vertically and horizontally. Demands for products and services have never been higher and the Identity service has been the backbone of this response enabling most of the features provided by the wider Tesco retail platform.
Identity is a part of the Customer APIs team which is a team of Product Managers responsible for running the development, strategy, and vision for some of Tesco’s core technology foundations – a Retail Platform forming the building blocks of how Tesco masters, handles, and authenticates customer data.
Due to expansion, the Identity Team in the Customer APIs is looking to bring in a Product Manager to work with our engineering teams to lead on strategy and develop the roadmap with a particular focus on our internal processes, self-service capabilities and partner with our engineering, and design teams to deliver coordinated backend infrastructure and services with focus on resilience, security and usability of Identify Platform.

This a Product Manager role therefore standing over two of our ‘theme teams’ (sub domain scrum teams) within Tesco Identity. It is to provide Product Management steer and direction to two of these themes:
Resilience and Security: Optimising our Platform’s overall stability/ availability and recoverability, to deliver outstanding levels of service to the Tesco ecosystem
Developer Experience: Improving opportunities for the Developer community (both within, and outside, of Tesco) to dovetail into the Tesco Identity platform
The Two Main Responsibilities Would Be
