Argos creates 150 new technical roles

Argos is creating 150 technology and digital jobs to support its growing digital business.

The new tech roles range from graduate right up to principal level and include software development engineers, software engineering managers, machine learning engineers, big data engineers and product managers. These people will be based at the Argos technology hub in central London and at the head office in Milton Keynes.

Since Argos opened its technology hub in London in 2014, it has recruited almost 300 tech specialists across its IT, engineering and digital product teams. The company has pioneered its own technology solutions, rather than using third party offerings, enabling it to develop innovative solutions such as nationwide same-day Fast Track delivery and Fast Track store collection at more than 850 stores.

John Rogers, CEO at Argos, said: “This investment in our people will ensure we remain at the forefront of retail technology. Creating 150 new permanent tech roles demonstrates the importance we place on growing and nurturing our own tech talent, ensuring Argos is a fantastic place to shop for our customers.

“We’re excited by what our teams are achieving so far and we’re looking for more people who not only want to build today’s tech, but also to think big and create new experiences and functionality that our customers don’t even know they want yet.”

Recruits will get the opportunity to work with a range of emerging technologies, including Java 8, Kotlin, Hadoop, Spark, Python, Kafka and React.

RBTE takes place at London’s Olympia, 2-3 May 2018.
