How do you make our customers happy? is changing retail to make daily life simpler for 12 million customers. A mission we take on with 47000 partners that enrich our retail tech platform with customer-centric propositions. Combined, we offer 34 million articles and achieve peak sales of 700 orders per minute. (Black Friday, 2020). Given this huge volume and our rapid growth, you’ll appreciate how important it is to keep our IT infrastructure up and running.

The biggest challenge

Consistent. Scalable. Secure. This is what our platform is, and needs to remain, because it’s the bedrock that 100+ scrum teams and site reliability teams build on to put smiles on the faces of 12 million customers. So our Service Delivery Managers do what it takes to keep everything humming. Usually they succeed on their own, but occasionally incidents require a cross-functional solution. Can you keep your cool in these situations, so that management can too?

Your responsibilities

As Service Delivery Manager, you are an important link between all product teams (Business & IT) in your product domain. You ensure that all teams work towards a secure and reliable platform without hampering innovation speed. You achieve this by designing and safeguarding processes – potentially in collaboration with colleague Service Delivery Managers – that accommodate the teams’ Way of Working.

You manage projects that make our infrastructure better and more reliable. You also coordinate activities across teams. With large IT projects, you work together with your colleague SDMs and represent your domain. You provide structure when incidents arise and ensure we stay on top of issues and work towards quick and conclusive solutions. You inform all stakeholders, including managers up to the board level, about the status and progress of repairs. Operationally, you facilitate patch cycles to ensure stability, plan hardware replacements, and coordinate all changes (including cloud and network related). Finally, you make sure that all systems are ready at go-live moments.

  • Safeguard the continuity and availability of our IT infrastructure
  • Manage the overall incident management process
  • Inform and align stakeholders (scrum teams, management, business)
  • Provide advice for go-live and improvements
  • Initiate and manage improvement processes
  • Boost processes and Ways of Working to further enhance systems’ reliability
  • Write progress reports (project progress, capacity)

Why you can make the difference

Because you have excellent hard skills and soft skills. You are great at organizing, prioritizing, and structuring. You also know how to inspire and get people on board. Your outgoing personality – enthusing, collaborative – is just as valuable as your domain knowledge. These qualities win support from colleagues – developers with whom you work continuously  – and keep managers on your side. You also have a solid track record managing 24/7 web environments, demonstrable project management skills, and an uncanny ability to multiple plates spinning.
