Digital and technology

We are thought leaders, focused on progressive projects that enhance careers and accelerate our net zero ambition

Whether through UX design, analytics or strategy, your digital and technical skills will help us solve one of society’s most pressing problems: how can we provide energy to the world while being at the forefront of the sustainable energy transition?

Our business areas

We connect the digital disciplines, consumers and procurers of IT to help create an integrated, flexible and effective digital architecture for bp. As a community, we ensure every digital platform and service across the company – from laptop to offshore wells, trading desks and retail sites – are secure, innovative and integrated, to ensure our global business is future-ready.
Data & analytics
Customers are increasingly seeking better user experiences, greater convenience and lower cost offerings. That’s where we come in. Our data & analytics team strives to help bp sustainably meet these heightened customer expectations. We measure progress and impact, improve processes, assess technology choices, and generate data-driven insights to identify new business – always mindful of our net zero goal.
Design & change management
We help build digital solutions globally, working across bp’s digital landscape to embed sustainability, accessibility and inclusivity into our digital projects and services. That includes user experience research and content design, service and product design, design engineering for consumer mobile apps and websites, and design operations to manage our activities. 
Digital product
We help inform the company's strategy with our expertise and connect this to the product vision. As well as developing and delivering valuable products, we strive to optimize the customer journey and drive efficiencies. Through role-based learning and career development, we’re evolving how we think, design and deploy our next digital breakthroughs.

Enterprise technology & service engineering
Man operating digital equipment
We deliver value by shaping and integrating technology and services from the market within the bp technology landscape.
