About the role

Product managers at TESCO Technology are passionate about solving problems. They take accountability for complex products, and are empowered to drive the product strategy, roadmap and outcomes. Driven by curiosity and innovation, coupled with strong partnership with Business, Engineering, User Research and Data Science teams, our product managers create value for our Customers and Colleagues in all our markets.

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.

We are looking for a Senior Product Manager to be part of this journey, sharing our ambition to deliver for our Customers; with 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.


In return we offer excitement, a great team, an excellent benefit package, and significant career development opportunities. Joining us means playing a part in defining, building, and launching an ambitious roadmap of technology products in the Fulfilment Automation space.
