Engineering
at Kingfisher

At Kingfisher, our ambition is to define the next generation of retail. We’re transforming every aspect of how our customers access the tools of home improvement and our engineering teams will determine how successfully we do that. We’re disrupting a traditional retail model to create a truly omnichannel, digital and physical hybrid built around what customers need. That brings a unique set of challenges. How will we solve them? By building a culture where engineers are empowered to do what they do best; create incredible solutions to the trickiest technical challenges. 

About Engineering

Simply put, there is a constant variety of challenges here you won’t find in many other organisations. Working here means working on strategic programmes that impact seven different banners with footprints across Europe. You might work on a solution for one banner and then have the opportunity to iterate and adapt for six more, each with their own complexities and unique customer expectations. Whether it’s working side-by-side with product teams transforming customer experience or collaborating with solution architects to open up new possibilities, you’ll work on the most interesting challenges at the forefront of your discipline.

The Engineering Vision

As we shift to become a technology-driven retailer, the way we organise our teams is changing. We’re focussing on bringing more expertise in-house, building the necessary capabilities and developing innovative internal solutions for today and tomorrow’s challenges. That means embracing emerging technologies and applying them in new ways. We’re shifting towards a microservices model, deploying best-in-class cloud strategy and developing new capabilities in emerging technology. We’re ambitious about what we want to achieve. But we have the necessary support and investment from a leadership team that truly understands what it takes to change the landscape of our industry.

The role of Engineering

There is no one type of project here. You’ll work shoulder-to-shoulder with our seven banners to build the best products and services for their unique contexts. We’re making the strategic decisions across the business that mean you’ll be brought into projects with clear requirements and work within cross-functional teams with the freedom and support to find the right solution. You’ll have a clear line of sight in your projects where you’ll be able to see the importance of your work to the business and its impact on our customers.
