Coca-Cola is planning to open a digital delivery centre in Johannesburg and will be recruiting people in data analytics and software engineering roles. Two months ago, Coca-Cola established a new digital hub in Dublin to help accelerate its digital transformation, creating 40 jobs in its first phase.
The Dublin hub is one of six worldwide and will create jobs for data engineers, software developers, data analysts and technical experts. Recruitment is already underway.
Johannesburg rounds out the list and serves as the latest example of Coca-Cola’s savvy investment in its global digital network. Like other service centres, this teams’ efforts will focus on using digital insights, business intelligence, analytics, and smart digital marketing to enhance the customer and consumer experience.
Dublin’s digital hub will play a supporting role in Africa’s maturation process until Johannesburg is equipped to take on the local challenges and unique offerings that ultimately yield innovative, scalable solutions.
The initial recruiting focus resides in the data and analytics front, followed by software engineers and developers to fortify the diverse talent landscape.
Each delivery centre offers exciting opportunities to learn, grow, and contribute to Coca-Cola’s journey to be a cutting-edge technology leader. Africa brings yet another dimension to the tech scene and complements the diverse, yet focused global initiative.
“We are looking for people who want to be part of building something – creating a strong community from the ground up,” said Sue Liderth, vice president, Regional Delivery for Europe, Middle East, and Africa regions.
“That kind of experience instills a lot of pride – not only in one’s work, but also for the company and the communities in which we work, live, and serve.”
These digital hubs will be have a team of talented technology professionals who will leverage the power of IT to capture quality marketing insights quickly, helping to inform smarter decisions, respond to consumer demands and support commercial goals and objectives by using data and analytic solutions.
