Technology Software Engineering

Our software engineers continue to lead the way, building technology that can have a real impact on our customers. Our Technology Software Engineering programme will give you exposure to a selection of the latest technologies. It aims to equip you with the right knowledge and skills to become one of our future engineering leaders. You’ll be able to bring your knowledge and experience to life, helping us to better serve our customers. We’ll also show you how to architect some of the most complex and ambitious software systems being built like the front-end customer experiences and the back-end services that enable them. Using agile principles, you’ll learn how to protect customer data, how to automate and how to build large scale systems.


You’ll experience the breadth of software engineering with the opportunity to spend time in several teams, including our front and back end development teams as well as a placement in Tesco Labs too - the research and development team within Tesco Technology. You’ll be paired with other engineers in your team from a range of backgrounds (from other grads to experienced managers) and you'll work closely with your product managers to build software for either our customers or colleagues. Our software engineering teams work across our London and Welwyn offices with the possibility of placements in either location.


Who we are looking for

We’re looking for graduates with a passion for technology. Although you require a degree to apply for this role, it's not vital you're studing for a degree in computer science. However, you must be able to demonstrate your ability to write quality coding, which is assessed during the application process. We're looking for individuals who are keen to learn and build their skills, and who enjoy the challenge of working with something new.

Working at our Welwyn Garden City campus

Our leafy, green campus is 10 minutes' walk from the centre of Welwyn Garden City with its many shops, restaurants, pubs and sports facilities. Close to the A1, and with frequent trains running to Finsbury Park in just 20 minutes (free shuttle buses take you between the station and office), the campus is well connected to the surrounding area.


On campus, you'll find subsidised restaurants and coffee shops, as well as a Tesco Express to pick up your lunch or last-minute essentials. We also have our Heart Building, a place where colleagues can connect and come together, to unlock innovation and collaboration and a place where they can network and socialise. Plus we have an on-site Nuffield Health gym, which has state-of-the-art equipment, studios for classes, plus treatment rooms (membership costs £23.50 per month).
