Argos recruiting for 150 new tech roles

Argos Digital Hub

Argos is looking to recruit 150 new staff for its tech division, as it continues to invest in its digital shopping operations. 

The Sainsbury’s-owned retailer will expand its current tech team with new roles based at its London Victoria tech hub and its HQ in Milton Keynes. Its recruitment drive will grow the total number of tech staff working at its Victoria tech hub by 50%, with the headquarters boasting 300 tech staff since 2014.

The roles include graduate positions all the way up to the principal level and cover software development, software engineering, machine learning and big data management as Argos looks to capitalise on emerging technologies like machine learning.

With 60% of Argos customers browsing its catalogue online, and 70% of those sales coming via mobile devices, Argos chief executive officer John Rogers sees the investment as key to keeping the company 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," he said.

Rogers hopes that by hiring more tech staff his business will be able to improve customer experience and even rethink it in the future. “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,” he added.
