About us

We are The Very Group and we’re here to help families get more out of life. We know that our customers work hard for their families and have a lot to balance in their busy lives. That’s why we combine amazing brands and products with flexible payment options on Very.co.uk to help them say yes to the things they love. We’re just as passionate about helping our people get more out of life too; building careers with real growth, a sense of purpose, belonging and wellbeing.

About the team

The Customer team is focussed on developing and actioning the strategies for engaging and communicating with our customers through their entire lifecycle, from recruiting and onboarding through to lapsing.

We work very closely with Marketing functions across both the Retail and Financial Services arms of the business with ties into Customer Care teams, to serve our customers’ needs, and the Technology team to ensure we’re getting the most out of our existing tech stack, including adopting our new cloud-based CRM platform and richly populated data warehouse, and identifying new opportunities to explore.

About the role

As a Lead Data Developer within the Customer team you’ll play a key role in designing, deploying, managing, maintaining, and reinventing the processes that our customer communications teams rely upon to effectively engage with and manage our customers.

As part of the role you will:

  • Translate business requirements into detailed user stories to be worked across the team to generate robust data processes to support campaign selections, customer profiling and campaign performance reporting and analysis.
  • Manipulate large volumes of data across multiple sources and systems.
  • Develop a deep understanding of the wide variety of data sources available and look to leverage as much benefit from it as possible.
  • Collaborate closely with Campaign Selections, Marketing and Technology teams to ensure customer communications are implemented as effectively, accurately and in as automated a manner as possible.
  • Lead junior colleagues in project work, reviewing and approving their work and otherwise act as an example and mentor to them.
About You
  • Along with a logical mindset and common-sense approach, you’ll be able to visualise and articulate how multiple systems and processes interact with each other.
  • You’ll have strong SQL or SAS experience as a baseline technical skillset which we can build upon by teaching you our toolkits and the unique pieces of kit we use across the teams.
  • You’ll be comfortable communicating on all areas of your work, able to deliver technical information to technical and non-technical audiences with ease.
  • You’ll have proven experience in defining, scoping and leading delivery of technically complex projects involving rigorous testing
  • You’ll be comfortable working in a pacey and sometimes ambiguous environment, things change all the time here (being a 24/7 retailer you’re kept on your toes), but you’ll enjoy the surprises and challenges that comes with that!
