Technology and Change

Strong, dynamic and constantly evolving, Technology and Change capabilities are critical to the success of our organisation and we are always looking to fill our range of John Lewis IT jobs.

We’re growing as a multi-channel retailer and we’re always looking out for new advancements across all our activities to improve what we do. Technology will be the single most important factor to fulfilling our ambitions of being a leading digital retailer. Alongside this, we need to deliver world-class business change so that across the Partnership we adapt to constantly be at the forefront of our market.

Technology is becoming more and more ingrained in everything we do as a multi-channel retailer, from technology systems that allow our Buyers to analyse consumer trends, to systems that pay our suppliers on time and monitor our store and warehouse stock levels, we are always looking for innovative and technical individuals to join our Partnership.

Our Head Offices in London and Bracknell are home to our digital infrastructure and have the constant need to expand and evolve to keep up with industry and technological trends – even excelling them if possible.

Our digital developer teams are made up of many cogs, from Change and Programme Managers who ensure our customers remain at the centre of all our Projects, to our software engineers that contributed to our ‘quick check’ system which makes shopping quicker and easier or our security engineers that provide the secure payment systems for our customers.

The potential for the use of technology at every touchpoint of our business is limitless and the reach of Business

Change is endless.
