BP has embarked on an ambitious plan to modernize and transform using digital technologies to drive efficiency, effective and new business models.
IT&S is at the centre of BP's Group Strategy. We use our data and technology expertise, to improve efficiency, increase effectiveness and harness the transformational potential of digital technologies and new business models.
Our innovations and achievements lead the way for BP to modernise the way it works. IT&S touches every part of BP and we have employees in over 30 countries.
Join us and you'll have an opportunity to use your existing experience and expertise whilst continuing to develop professionally. Personal growth and development is encouraged and learning opportunities are plentiful. You are empowered to Explore, Think, Do.
If technology excites you, we want you!
At IT&S, all the roles are within Chapters. While your role will continue to remain within the Chapter, your initial activities described below may change over time. The chapter will be based on your skill set and will be confirmed if you are the successful candidate.
This first activity is creating mobile applications for either BP external customers or internally for BP colleagues, potentially in industrial sites. Therefore, you will require specific skills/experience in mobile development stacks, e.g. React Native, ideally someone who has worked on native iOS and/or Android applications before.
