You’ll be integral in the development of our Internal People systems, driving innovation using Python and Google Cloud Technologies, benefiting from a high level of autonomy in playing a key role in defining our Development roadmap.

Our people are our most valuable asset, and whilst we have high expectations for your delivery, we recognise the importance of work life balance. We’ve recently moved to a four day working week, and take a flexible hybrid working approach around our core hours.

If you’ve got experience with Python, understand cloud technologies, and are comfortable working at pace in an ever changing environment, this could be a fantastic chance to further your career with the nation's largest food manufacturer.

  • Other technologies present in our digital realestate include Java, Node, AWS and Oracle HCM.

You'll be responsible for:

  • Developing and maintaining internal services that are in constant use by our.colleagues.
  • Partnering with the wider business to help identify gaps and areas for innovation.
  • Creating PoC’s with new technologies that deliver benefits for our customer experience applications
  • Mentoring junior engineers and inputting into software development best practices.
  • Contributing to CI/CD as organisation priority for any application built.
About You

You’ll ideally have the following skills:

  • Strong Python programming knowledge
  • Good knowledge of JavaScript with React
  • Experience using and deploying to cloud platforms
  • Good experience consuming and creating RESTful back end services.
  • Experience with GIT and the Atlassian stack would be beneficial
  • Previous experience working in a large and fast paced organisation
  • Familiar with SOLID engineering principles
  • Comfortable with Agile methodologies and contributing to Agile ceremonies
  • Strong communication skills
  • Resourceful and proactive, with strong, creative problem solving skills
About The Company
Proud of our roots, Morrisons is a leading Yorkshire food retailer, serving 11 million customers across 500 stores a week. We’re also the UK’s second largest food manufacturer. Together, we make millions of products a year in our 18 manufacturing sites, allowing us to focus on what our customers want: good quality, fresh food and great value.  
Our people make Morrisons. We’re passionate about recognising diverse talent and building careers for our people. We’re forward-thinking and stay one step ahead in an ever-evolving industry, giving us exposure to creative initiatives which improve the offering to our customers.
In return for looking after our customers, we look after our people with great perks, lots of career opportunities and the training and support everyone needs to be the best they can be.
We pride ourselves on being a diverse and inclusive business and are committed to making Morrisons a brilliant place to work, harbouring an environment where our people can thrive.
Treating all colleagues with respect and dignity is the Morrisons way - we celebrate individuality and love different perspectives. It’s what you bring to the table that matters.

New Ways of Working
The wellbeing of our colleagues is really important to us and we want everyone to have a great home and work life balance. Because of this we've introduced a four day working week for all full time colleagues based at our head office in Bradford.
You’ll be able to flex your working hours around the core hours of 10am-4pm, and can choose to do different hours each day as long as you’re covering these core hours. Each four day week will contain four average nine hour days.
To be more competitive and support our stores and sites more effectively, we now work over a six day operation, Monday to Saturday inclusive, and everyone in our head office now works one Saturday in every four (or 13 a year), albeit Saturday will be a shorter working day of 6 hours.
Your non-working day will need to fit in with the business needs so more information about this and which day you'd take off will be discussed at your interview.
