Our vision here at Tesco is to serve Britain's shoppers a little better every day.
We want to become every customer's favourite way to shop, whether they are online or in our stores.
As one of the world's largest retailers, Tesco has over 6,000 stores globally, successful online and digital businesses and a truly innovative culture. We operate in complex environments and with a volume of data few other companies have access to. We have embraced Data Science solutions full on, exploiting expert techniques to drive the business ambition of becoming a multi-channel leader and we are looking for curious individuals who want to make a mark and contribute to this ground breaking work.
About the Tesco Data Science Team
The Data Science Team sits centrally within Tesco and focuses on solving complex business problems and developing data products that can be deployed at scale to our customers. Our work spans across multiple areas including physical stores, online, fulfilment, marketing and Clubcard and we encourage rotation amongst our Data Scientists so they can apply their skills to different business challenges and gain deeper levels of subject matter expertise. The Data Science Team is made up of multi-disciplined researchers and practitioners with varied backgrounds from both academia and the business world. We strive to foster a culture of innovation by encouraging our Data Scientists to focus 20% of their time on self-driven projects that utilise their expertise to solve real-world challenges that Tesco faces.
