We’re looking

for a Site Reliability Engineering Manager who expects more from their career. It’s a chance to extend and improve dunnhumby’s platform.

It’s an opportunity to work with a market-leading business to explore new opportunities for us and influence global retailers.

As a Site Reliability Engineering Manager, you lead multiple functional teams of highly talented individuals and are responsible for some of the largest data & product platforms in the world.

Although you have management experience, you are relentlessly technical, capable of performing the role of any engineer reporting to you.

As with any engineer we hire, the ability to communicate well is crucial, and you manage multiple initiatives with multiple engineers potentially across multiple time zones in order to achieve dunnhumby’s reliability and efficiency goals.

Behind everything our users see online is the architecture built by the Technical Infrastructure team to keep it running.

From developing and maintaining our data centers to building the next generation of dunnhumby platforms, we make dunnhumby's product portfolio possible.

We're always on call to keep our infrastructure up and running, ensuring our users have the best and fastest experience possible.

What we expect from you

  • Mentoring individual contributors, SME and recruiting and developing talent capable of scaling dunnhumby through high growth
  • Communicate and deliver to commitments, demands, SLAs and SLOs, and increase the velocity of our teams by removing roadblocks
  • Build relationships with other Engineering teams, Product Management, Data Science, Project Management, and related groups to build and improve our growing critical infrastructure
  • CI / CD, automation, and building self-service catalogue
  • Review the OPEX spend across all the hosting platforms and improve efficiency to reduce costs of dunnhumby products & services hosted on these platforms
  • Analyse current and future needs to plan the organizational roadmap
  • Ensure the availability of systems and services critical to dunnhumby's mission
  • Drive a culture of reliability and transparency across the infrastructure engineering organization
  • Prioritize, direct and appraise the activities of engineers
  • Assertively lead and be a change agent : continuously observe, review and improve the team's productivity and efficiency
  • Ensure we hit our engineering hiring plans, leveraging a personal network formed from being effective at ongoing recruiting, and based on solid understanding of local engineering-talent marketplaces and regional differences
  • What you can expect from us

    We won’t just meet your expectations. We’ll defy them. So you’ll enjoy the comprehensive rewards package you’d expect from a leading technology company.

    But also, a degree of personal flexibility you might not expect. Plus, thoughtful perks, like flexible working hours and your birthday off.

    You’ll also benefit from an investment in cutting-edge technology that reflects our global ambition. But with a nimble, small-business feel that gives you the freedom to play, experiment and learn.

    And we don’t just talk about diversity and inclusion. We live it every day with thriving networks including dh Women’s Network, dh Proud, dh Parent’s & Carer’s, dh One and dh Thrive as the living proof. Everyone’s invited.

    Our approach to Flexible Working

    At dunnhumby, we value and respect difference and are committed to building an inclusive culture by creating an environment where you can balance a successful career with your commitments and interests outside of work.

    We believe that you will do your best at work if you have a work / life balance. Some roles lend themselves to flexible options more than others, so if this is important to you please raise this with your recruiter, as we are open to discussing agile working opportunities during the hiring process.
