Technology - the problem solver

Technology continues to change the face of retail. Tesco Technology leads the way.

 

We’re passionate about serving our shoppers a little better every day, and that’s why we invented Clubcard with the Marketing function, we developed Brand Guarantee, and we help reduce queue times using infrared technology.

 

We also care about our people. We want to help you have the best start to your career, so we provide you with a unique experience with responsibilities from day one! This ten week programme aims to provide our interns with a flavour of life at Tesco Technology. You’ll be able to bring your knowledge and experience to life, helping us to better serve our customers.

 

So whether you think you want to delve into the code and spend your 10 weeks as a software engineer in one of our engineering teams, or get involved in the detail of the product and programme management side, we want you to be in the role that best suits you and the skills you want to develop. Don't worry if you are unsure, we will ask later in the application process and can help you choose.

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.
