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

As a team lead you will be responsible for one or two scrum teams that form a cell.

These teams are improving our online proposition and in general consist of a Scrum master, an analyst, developers (Java, Node.js, iOS, Intershop, front-enders and/or testers), a UX designer and a product owner. Because you have a technical background you can grow the team by coaching the team members and provide them with constructive feedback. As a team lead you will be HR responsible for the people in your team and you will have the responsibility to hire new colleague's. You will be working together with the Scrum master, product owner, technical pathfinders and other team leads to help the team deliver high quality products and improve speed of delivery. You also help the teams in working with other teams to achieve the goals and mission of the organization.

You will meet regularly with the development manager to celebrate the team's successes and to discuss issues that need to be addressed. The development manager will also help you find your way at Jumbo and enable your career development.
