Our last event with Sainsbury's was a hit, and it's easy to see why. 'From Data to Decisions: The Science Behind Sainsbury's Tech' took us behind the scenes at the company's tech team. From engineering and developer roles, to the company's tech stack and the benefits that come with working for an organisation that has data at the heart of what they do, you'll be hard pressed to find a place that suits your spec for a dream job more than them. But if you still need convincing, we've compiled just 5 reasons why you should consider a role at Sainsbury's Tech, who are currently hiring via hackajob.
(If you need a refresher on the webinar, you can view it here.)
1. Sainsbury's Invest In Their Team
Taking a 360 approach when it comes to training and investing in their employees, landing a role with Sainsbury's Tech could help you flourish in your career. From behaviour to leadership to technical, there are plenty of ways in which they support and progress you as part of the team. They also offer official training with suppliers and partners, for example Snowflake, or even official accreditation from City & Guilds.
2. Data is at the heart of their strategy
Sainsbury's Tech aims to give value, quality and convenience to their customers, and to do that they need those who love data. With roles for Cloud Engineers, Principal Engineering Managers, and many more, it's a no-brainer to join their team. As data is at the heart of what they do, your skills are very much wanted and needed. So if you're feeling read, head on over to hackajob to sign up.
3. Progress On Your Own Terms
Being a manager is not everyone's cup of tea, but that doesn't mean you don't want to reach more senior levels in your career. Sainsbury's Tech understands that every individual is different, and whilst some may want to become a 'Head Of' or 'Principal', there are others who may not want to be a manager at all. That's why they have several pathways for you to progress at Sainsbury's Tech. So whether you're born to lead, ready to mentor or you're happier getting tasks done, you can progress on your own terms.
4. Learn and Develop
Staying on top of new skills is a must in any tech role. Whether you're getting up-to-date with the newest version of a programming language or you're giving back to the community, it's important to have that time to better yourself. If you're looking for a company where you can learn and develop, and that has an aim of everyone being able to grow, then this might be your time to shine. Everyone who works in Sainsbury's Tech has 10% of working time to invest back in their development and give back to the community. Now that's what we call value.
5. Be part of a diverse and inclusive workplace
With events, policies and practical ways to support colleagues, Sainsbury's Tech is committed to diversity and inclusion. In fact, they joined in with the global #ChooseToChallenge social challenge for International Women's Day, are proud supporters of their LGBTQ employees and are making huge leaps towards improving overall diversity in tech as well.
We know what you're thinking – those five reasons were over so quickly. If you're wondering about what more Sainsbury's Tech could offer you, then sign up to hackajob where they are currently hiring for developer, engineering and more tech roles.
