Endeavor Group – the liquor and hotel retail operator spun off from Woolworths last year – is recruiting to find 300 new technology team members.

The company wants to push its technology, data and digital capabilities, but finds few already qualified workers.

It targets data scientists, data analysts, data engineers, software engineers, product managers, platform managers, solution managers, designers, and business analysts as roles to fill.

EndeavourX – a digital and innovation arm that uses the naming convention of former owner Woolworths – is recruiting around 150 positions to support the development of its customer-facing technology, a spokesperson for Endeavor Group said. iTnews.

Home to Dan Murphy’s, BWS, Jimmy Brings and ALH brands, Endeavor Group invested $35 million in endeavourX in March this year to drive e-commerce and technology innovation.

Part of this budget was to be invested in recruitment, as the group now seeks to transform and simplify its technology for growth and innovation.

“The balance of roles is in our broader data, analytics and technology team,” the spokesperson said.

There would be entry-level, “associate” roles offered across the technology, data and digital teams.

“We’ve created associate-level positions in our business analysts, delivery managers, and product management practices,” the spokesperson said.

Associated roles will be added “on a rolling basis” and will receive training in specific technology areas.

EndeavourX director Claire Smith said the company offers remote and flexible working options and wants to attract “innovative and collaborative people who think outside the box, who want to help us create experiences and services that will delight customers today, tomorrow and beyond.”

In 2020, endeavorX built a personalization engine to enhance Dan Murphy’s loyalty program.

It also began rolling out electronic shelf labels at BWS and Dan Murphy stores. The tags use Near Field Communication (NFC) to provide product information or notices to customers who place their phones on the shelf tags.
