Oversee the gathering and dissemination of insight on customer needs and market developments and keep the team up-to-date on competitor performance.
Experienced in digital product management or product development, with at least 5-7 yrs in web and/or mobile. Exposure to retail is a plus, but either way you're passionate about the positive impact technology can have on the way people shop.
Qualifications in technology and/or business and marketing, with postgraduate studies well regarded.
You have a strong grasp of web and mobile technology (you may even have once been a developer) and while you're focussed on the bigger picture you also understand the work that's required to make it happen and the the importance of getting the details right in products which are built to serve a huge user base day in, day out.

Experienced in Agile development, ideally with a mix of start-up and corporate experience – this team is at the forefront of changing the way Tesco works, but we recognise that bringing the right offerings to market involves a complex mix of people and technology from across the business.
You are a super communicator and you understand how critical communication is to the success of a product function. You can make complex things easy for diverse audiences; you grasp the detail but understand how to communicate at multiple levels.
