Argos to recruit 150 technology and digital specialists
Argos is creating 150 permanent technology and digital jobs to support its online business.
The roles will be based at the Argos technology hub in London’s Victoria or at its head office in Milton Keynes.
Argos develops its own technology, rather than buying it in and is pushing to keep at the forefront of retail technology. It said around 60% of its business now starts online with 70% of those sales conducted on mobile devices.
John Rogers, chief executive of Argos, said: “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.”
The positions will range from graduate entry roles right up to principal level and include software development engineers, software engineering managers, machine learning engineers, big data engineers and product managers.
Argos said recruits will get the opportunity to work with a range of emerging technologies, including Java 8, Kotlin, Hadoop, Spark, Python, Kafka and React.
