Dave Johnson: an update on Co-op engineering and our AGM

(Transcript) Dave: Hello I’m Dave Johnson, I’m the Director of Digital Engineering here at the Co-op. This is our weekly digital blog and I’d like to share with you some of the progress we’ve made in the last week.

The Digital Engineering team, which I am responsible for, builds the foundations on which we build all our services and new digital products. We focus on architecture, cloud platforms, some new ways of working such as DevOps and we do that at scale so you’ll see our services across the whole of the Co-op.

This week is a really big week for the Co-op and for all our members. Our voting packs went out this week and if you’re an eligible member you’ll have received a pack to vote on the motions for our AGM which is on Saturday the 20th of May. We’d love
for you to join us and you’re welcome. But please remember to tick the box within those voting packs letting us know that you’re coming, so we can be ready, and we look forward to meeting you here in Manchester.

And we have some colleagues to celebrate this week too. Firstly, Sam Johnson. Sam is a new general manager of The Federation, our new tech hub that we built here in Manchester. Wendy Coello has also joined us. Wendy will be leading our member and colleague communications here at the Co-op. We’re also celebrating a big promotion: James Boardwell has been promoted to Head of User Research here at Co-op Digital. Well done James.

Finally, if you’d like to join Co-op Digital we continue to hire. The blog’s up to date and we’d love to hear from you.

Thank you.

Dave Johnson
Director of Engineering
