A Place To Get On.
Digital commerce is booming and we're here to shape it with you, together. Our technology hub in Budapest of nearly 100 highly trained software developers and engineers - and the number is growing - is working on shaping the retail market with the latest technologies.
We are aiming to drive business through innovation and to create a horizontal organisation that transforms the environment.
Shaping the retail technology landscape
We are implementing global software development projects with the latest technologies across fulfilment, supplier and product management, online and in-store loss prevention and our online grocery sites.
We're working on the most exciting solutions with the UK and India tech hubs: AI powered self-checkout stores, Clubcard, online shopping, click and collect, scan and shop app and more.
What would I miss if I left?
The colleagues I work with are experts and if any challenge arises, you can always find a colleague who is able to help you.

Which celebrity would your company be?
Personal qualities we appreciate
We're enthusiastic, open and team spirited V-shaped developers. If you're a bit of a geek yourself, have leadership skills and enjoy end-to-end ownership over your code, we're looking for you.
🌱We're environmentally conscious and have many goals to achieve:
🌱100% paperless office work
🌱Selective waste collection
🌱Food Rescue Program with the help of the Hungarian Food Bank Association
🌱100% recyclable packaging for Tesco brands
🌱Reducing our carbon footprint by finding the shortest delivery
Our tech stack
We are responsible for the software throughout the lifecycle and maintain a DevOps culture employing continuous integration and delivery.
Our teams take complete ownership of the software we use, continuously overview what tools and methodologies fit the problems best. Most of the time we use:
- Kubernetes & Docker
- Agile and scrum
Employee Assistance Program
We provide legal, psychological and financial support and consultation called ICAS for our colleagues and their relatives. The service is completely free and anonymous so everyone feels heard.
We're currently in home office
During the pandemic we quickly moved to home office to keep our colleagues safe. Their wellbeing is our number one priority, that's why beside providing mental and physical support, we let our teams take their own office equipments - monitors, chairs, etc. - home.
We take full responsibility over our code. Our teams are dedicated to products, programs and projects, each taking ownership of their design, coding, testing, QA, deployment and maintaining, which are facilitated by their managers or rotating scrum masters.
We're becoming a technology company with a retail business. This mental shift enables us to move in the right direction and make an impact.
Your onboarding experience
Your application process will take around two weeks. During this time of period you will have the chance to take part on interviews with several of our decision makers and your future teammates.
It's equally important you learn our goals, toolsets, your future local and global teams. You'll be invited to our (now) online beer sessions, workshops and buddy program to integrate in our community.
About the Helping Hands
Every Christmas and Easter when demand is at its highest in our stores, we volunteer to step out of the office and spend a day there to help our store colleagues with replenishment work. It's inspiring to see their hard work and meet our customers as well.
