IKEA invites tech talent for job interviews over 3D-printed meatballs
IKEA is inviting people with imagination for a job interview over experimental 3D-printed plant based meatballs as part of its new data and technology recruitment campaign.
The furniture giant is looking to recruit for more than 150 technology and innovation roles across Europe in 2022.
While IKEA’s restaurant menus already include plantballs as alternatives to traditional meatballs, the company is now exploring new technologies to make them more sustainable in line with its commitment to offer 50% plant-based main meals in its restaurants by 2025.
Now IKEA is inviting candidates to bring their ideas and try plant-based meatballs prepared with a 3D printer as it launches its “Taste the Future” campaign.
Inter IKEA Group CIO Pascal Pauwels. said: “IKEA is at the start of a journey to embrace data and technology to become more affordable, accessible and sustainable in an omnichannel environment. Naturally people with imagination will play a big role in that quest. So here we’re looking for people who want to create a better everyday life with us. This campaign is a great way to start the conversation.”
Karen Rivoire, IKEA employer brand leader, added: “We’re looking for down-to-earth data scientists, future architects, cyber guardians, unboxed engineers and common sense-makers. People who want to co-create a better everyday life at home for the many with thin wallets.”
