Jumbo Tech Campus: where it all happens

As an IT professional, you want to work on innovations that matter. You want to have the freedom to discover new things and push boundaries as part of a top-flight team. At our Jumbo Tech Campus, you can. Our mission is to design the future of online food retail – and we are making great advances in achieving that goal.

Last year Jumbo’s ecommerce turnover doubled. And our omnichannel focus has enabled customers to do their shopping both in shops as well as online. In our multidisciplinary, international and agile environment you will work on innovative products and services which we release more and more by continuous delivery. So you’ll be working today on a new food experience that our customers will be able to use tomorrow!

There’s no ‘I’ in Jumbo
Whether it is creating a service that will serve our mobile app, the website or other backend systems, you will be working on the systems that make up the future of Jumbo Tech. You will be working with technology that is new to our ecosystem, which will enable us to develop new features for our customers much faster. Starting with a preliminary system analysis, to testing and deployment, you’ll be executing full lifecycle software development by programming well-designed, testable and efficient code. You’ll work together with your fellow team members and provide them with constructive feedback, to make sure you and your team continuously improve.

Your team consists of a NodeJS developer, iOS and Android developers, a tester, Scrum master, team lead and a Product Owner. Together you’ll work in two-week sprints. At our Jumbo Tech Campus, we aim to guarantee the best possible code by reviewing each other’s work and trying to learn from each other whenever we can. We also continuously test and analyse our systems’ performance to keep up with our ever-growing customer base. We weren’t exaggerating when we said every day is an experience, were we?
