Big Data at Vodafone

Imagine working where you have the agility of a start-up and the resources of a global corporate. A place where sophisticated technologies and like-minded colleagues combine, equipping you to turn invisible, unstructured data into something incredible. Where predictive, prescriptive and cognitive analysis reveal what’s possible – so you can make it powerful.

Our Talent

That’s what we believe we have. And wherever in the world they’re based, our Big Data Scientists have everything they need to solve the biggest data challenges. Find out more about them and what drives them to deliver Big Data solutions for us. Here’s some of the great people you could be working with.

Why do Big Data here?

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
problems, Vodafone is
the place for you.”

Katia Walsh
Group Director, Big Data Analytics

Get to know what drives the people you could soon be working with — brilliant minds who share your passion for Big Data's possibilities.

Taking Big Data Further

As a company with over 400 million customers globally, one thing we can guarantee you in our increasingly connected world is pace. Business as usual for us is no longer simply about people being able to talk and text. We now empower customers to share images and videos as soon as they’re captured. Express thoughts and feelings in an instant. Feel the world is literally at their fingertips.

The way our customers use data is as varied as it is complex. So everything we do to drive Big Data forward at Vodafone is summed up in what we think of as our mission statement: think big, start small, scale fast.

Ours is an environment where brilliant minds create exciting new opportunities and experiences – for us, our customers and our teams. There are so many possibilities for change and growth; thousands of ways to deliver experiences that are as unique as each of our customers. Right now, we’re focused on these areas as a priority:

Churn prevention

We want to ensure our customers feel we’ve substantially enhanced the quality of the service we provide them. So we’re using Big Data analysis to drive customer-obsessed, best-in-class experiences.

Convergence enablement

Buying mobile, fixed-line, broadband and TV together from one supplier is a growing customer trend. We’ve focused on this and invested in it over the last few years to grow our prominence in fully integrated communications services. We now cover over 28 million households and thousands of businesses across Europe. In the world of Big Data, this makes our ambitions a very big deal.

Fraud management

Every major business needs to mitigate the impact of fraud. We’re doing this by looking at Big Data from our network in new ways – protecting our revenue so we’re able to reinvest it for customers.

What’s in the pipeline?

From apps to chatbots, artificial intelligence to robots, Big Data is creating opportunities to explore, experiment and expand on what’s possible. Be part of a team that’s doing precisely that.

Using Big Data for social good

Our commitment to the communities we operate in extends beyond the products and services we offer – social good being a hugely important part of what drives our business. Here are just a few stories highlighting ways in which Vodafone is transforming lives for the better around the globe.

Revolutionising mobile finance

Fortune Magazine’s Change the World – a list of companies ‘doing well by doing good’ – ranked Vodafone number one in 2015 for the revolutionary M-Pesa: a money transfer by smartphone initiative that’s changed lives and businesses for the better in Africa and beyond.
