Data science is becoming a reality for change management, and it is time for Centrica to get ready. To be best positioned to change in the next decade, Centrica wants to set themselves up well now, by collecting the right kind of data and investing in their analytical capacity. To be able to do so, Centrica needs the right organization with the right competencies. This is why the company has established a new team named Business Management. 

The Data Product Owner is part of the Business Management team (Trading, Analytics & Algos) consisting of Business Managers and Product Owners and you report to the Head of Business Management Trading (Algos & Support, Product Owner, Energy Marketing & Trading). 

The Business Management team constantly strive to support and optimize the business. All team members contribute to a positive working environment, characterized by different personalities and skillsets and you get great opportunities to make your mark and influence decisions.

The Data Product Owner is the engine driving Centrica’s data transformation. The Data Product Owner identifies how the company manages, uses, and scales data to realize its full power and help achieve Centrica’s mission to deliver actionable insights from data to the business. Fundamental to this transformation is the evolution of a data product approach which unlocks the value of data from across Centrica’s business.

The Data Product Owner helps drive a data product mindset across Centrica, capable of building a data product practice that will support Centrica's global business. Fundamentally, the Data Product Owner is responsible for leading the development of data products which maximizes the business value and adheres to Centrica’s data governance policies and procedures in the areas of analytical purpose, operational data, machine learning, power and gas trading, algorithmic trading, and cloud migration. 

To successfully deliver change in a fast-paced working environment, the Data product Owner must:

  • develop a deep understanding of current and future needs from stakeholders,
  • define and prioritize product requirements and features which drive business value and adhere to the company's data governance policies and procedures, based on market analysis, customer feedback, and internal needs,
  • collaborate with cross-functional teams including data scientists, engineers, and business stakeholders, to develop and deliver high-quality products which maximize business value,
  • define and track product metrics to measure the success of the products and use those metrics to drive continuous improvement and ensure maximum business value,
  • own the product roadmap and communicate progress and plans to key stakeholders focusing on maximizing business value,
  • lead agile projects within the data remit.

You have a master’s degree within Computer Science, Data Science, Economics, Business Administration, or a related field.

You have more than 3 years of experience with data-driven products and data governance as well as experience with strategy and transformation, ideally from a management consultancy, industrial or banking company. Experience working in the energy sector or/and experience working with data distribution, machine learning, data analytics and cloud migration is an advantage but not a requirement. Furthermore, you have experience with agile frameworks, e.g., Scrum and Kanban, and project management, preferably with projects involving the development of data solutions.

You are commercially focused, proven, delivery orientated, a data professional, and passionate about the transformative role of data. You are a self-starter, well organized, have strong attention to detail and are a great multi-tasker, who can focus both on the short term, and on the future. 

You work effectively with various stakeholders, cultures, and personalities and have a natural curiosity for understanding the business. You thrive on solving hands-on tasks and are robust, analytical, and structured in your way of working. Finally, you communicate in a clear and structured way, both in writing and orally, and possess good facilitation and presentation skills.

You get the possibility to join one of the most successful energy trading companies in Europe where you will get an attractive salary package matching your qualifications, a workplace that is constantly developing, excellent opportunities for professional and personal development and colleagues who set the bar high and the ambitions even higher.
