Job description

Senior Engineer - Java

The big question: why on earth should a Tech professional like you work for a 150-year-old retail chain? Because we’re on a journey. Changing the way we operate.  Learning to think nimble. Giving our teams the time and freedom they need to push boundaries. To create amazing systems and technologies. To give our colleagues and our customers even more incredible experiences.

There are thousands of experts to talk to and learn from. We’ve got data from billions of transactions for our teams to play with. Things get built here. They get made here. They hit customers and colleagues quickly. Welcome to the home of Sainsbury's Tech.

More about the role:

You will be building the products and services that underpin the groceries online website so everything that happens from when you click buy to groceries arriving at your door.

Ideally you should show a good level of understanding across a variety of technical skills, demonstrate and promote good attitudes and behaviours, such as collaboration, learning, sharing, respect and motivation.

We are continuing to grow our DevOps culture so a belief in this way of working helps, as we build and own the entire stack, and endeavour to automate as much as possible.

We deploy multiple services to cloud based infrastructure using CI/CD pipelines, monitor our applications using the ELK stack and work with Node.js, Python, PHP, MySQL, Docker, Postgresql, Terraform, Ansible and friends…so any knowledge in these areas would be great but not essential.

What we are looking for:

  • Write clean code using Java 11 with tools and frameworks like Spring, Hibernate, Maven and Gradle
  • Write automated tests (TDD/BDD) using tools such as Junit, Spock, Gatling and Selenium, where appropriate 

In return you’ll get:

  • Discount across the Sainsbury’s Group
  • Bonus scheme
  • Retirement savings plan
  • Special offers on gym memberships, restaurants, holidays, retail vouchers and more

Flexible working and job share conversations are available. Across our multi-brands, we’re proud to be an equal opportunities employer that champions a diverse and inclusive culture. If you’re reading this, even if you’re not 100% sure you’re there with your experience, we’d still love to hear from you. If you’d like to find out more head to Sainsbury's Tech.
