Technology Software Engineering - the creator

Tesco technology pioneers: we make great technology.

 

As a company, we’re passionate about serving our shoppers a little better every day. Our software engineers continue to lead the way with building our technologies – it’s a real area of growth here at Tesco.

 

This one year graduate programme will give you exposure to a selection of the latest technologies. It aims to equip graduates 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 challenging software systems being built. Using Agile principles, you’ll learn how to protect customer data, how to automate, and how to build large scale systems.

 

We like to give graduates a network of support: our team of industry experts will be there to support you as you grow on this programme, but you’ll also have a buddy and a mentor who will be on hand to support you throughout.

How we’ll support you

Alongside the buddy, mentor and supportive line manager, we’ll also offer you technical skills training via QA, Pluralsight and Codeschool. The team you work in will be filled with experts in their fields, so you’ll have the chance to learn a lot, as well as do pair programming.

Awesome technology you get to work with

We work with a wide variety of technologies, frameworks, tools and languages - and the list is always growing! We believe in empowering every team to select the technology that best addresses their challenge, and we especially love it when we can harness the power of the open source community. Some recent examples include using the react.js framework on Node for our new website or Java and vert.x for API development.
