Product Managing Consultant - Data Products and Innovation

Who CACI are

CACI is a leading player in the consumer data and location analytics market. The UK business is a wholly owned subsidiary of CACI Inc ($5bn) and runs independently from the US, with little overlap in service offering.

The core business proposition is working with leading, global clients across a variety of industry sectors, to create deep and long-term relationships with customers; through the effective use of data, data science, marketing and technology solutions.

This role sits within the Data Products and Innovation team in the Marketing Services Division of CACI Ltd, which includes over 200 people. Within the Marketing Services Division we believe it is our ability to do amazing things with data that sets us apart. From store location planning, logistics, spatial planning, marketing communications and client analytics to
curating, modelling and creating customer and business datasets; we believe everything we do starts with data and ends with action to improve business performance.

To deliver this we use our market-leading datasets and software, of which our data product suite is key. We supply this unique knowledge to a fantastic portfolio of clients around the
globe and across a wide range of sectors; including some of the UK’s leading financial organisations, retailers, restaurant groups, property companies and brand names across utilities, healthcare, automotive, telcos and charities.

This is a rare opportunity to join a market-leading and progressive organisation where data and technology are truly at the heart of the business. Your role will be to help CACI continue to evolve and develop our product suite through innovation and business change.

The products

CACI have a long and established history with our flagship products Acorn, Fresco, Ocean and Retail Footprint, but as well as these there are a suite of over 30 other data products that
support them. We are continually evolving our product set based on new data sources available.

The Data Products and Innovation team looks after the product suite, supplier management & compliance, and plays a key role in influencing the tech stack that underpins that.

Supported by a significant budget, the data development function sources data from a wide spectrum of suppliers (i.e. open, commercial, government, research, academic) and types
(mobile, consumer, household, spend, location, services / amenities, infrastructural, geographical, environmental) to create data solutions that can be applied across different levels of identification (i.e. individual, household / property, address, geographical, spatial)

The successful creation, evolution and delivery of our product suite is essential to the performance of the Marketing Solutions Division, accounting for an 8-figure annual revenue contribution.

The business is committed to evolve the current data development function (product, people, processes, technology) and ensure that it continues to develop innovative, valuable and profitable data solutions to meet the changing needs of brands and the market.
