Put simply, because you’d be joining the best: a global business, in every sense, operating in around 30 countries and partnering with networks in over 50 more. We’re also one of the world’s most valuable brands – something a business can only achieve by having continuous innovation at its core.
From the very first international roaming call made on our network in 1991 to the new standards we set in mobile internet access with Vodafone Live! in 2002, to enabling those in emerging markets to move money around using mobile devices – even when they don’t have a bank account – you’ll find Vodafone at the forefront of what’s new.
Ours is a brand that loves change. If it’s not happening naturally, we’re creating it ourselves. It’s in our DNA to push forward, create better and never rest until we’ve find new ways to help people connect and communicate. That’s the lifeblood that runs throughout Vodafone. And its shared by everyone in our Big Data community, wherever they are on the planet.
“If you're interested in
using data science to solve
the most vexing business
