About the role

Building tools, designing improved systems, and sharing best practice are just some of the ways the Customer SRE team serves our users a little better every day.

We embed with the engineering teams that own the APIs and apps connecting customers with Tesco. Those APIs and apps cover everything from authentication to address books, forgotten passwords to forgery detection. The engineering teams already follow a DevOps approach, owning both the code and production. We consult with them to adopt more SRE concepts and practices, helping them develop and meet their SLOs, learn from outages, and navigate a path from an honest assessment of where they are to where they would like to be.

We work with systems handling thousands of requests per second as well as those processing a handful of critical operations per week. Customer SRE is a growing team with a mission to bring the SRE approach and mindset to more engineers within Tesco and to deliver the benefits of SRE to our colleagues and customers.
