We’re open to applications from candidates who may require flexible working arrangements. There’ll be an opportunity to discuss your flexible working requirements during the interview process, and at offer stage.

Please be aware Co-op does not offer visa sponsorship for this opportunity

We’re looking for Software Engineers to join our Operational Innovation teams to help us transform how we design, build, and operate our digital products and services. These teams make our food stores as simple as possible to operate; helping our in-store colleagues focus on delivering a great customer experience. One of the key developments in this area will be around a new suite of web applications for smarter stock management and integration with our SAP ERP.

At Co-op, the systems our engineers work on range from cloud-based services and applications for customers and colleagues, to tills in stores. Collaboration is part of who we are, and we work in small, multi-disciplinary, and agile teams; often using pair and ensemble programming. We’ll provide you with career and technical coaching, and we run communities of practice to support our colleague’s learning and development.

What you’ll do

  • Work collaboratively to build, maintain, and support Co-op applications and systems
  • Develop software iteratively and up to a high standard
  • Share your knowledge and skills with your colleagues as part of our communities of practice sessions
  • Provide guidance and support to our junior engineers and the wider team
  • Resolve technical challenges, making sure that solutions fulfil our business objectives

This role would suit people who have

  • Experience in a hands-on Software Engineering role; implementing and maintaining applications and services
  • Experience of tooling and practices for automated build, integration, and deployment, as well as delivering iteratively towards an end-goal
  • Good programming skills in React, using Typescript and C# .NET and an exposure to test automation using tools such as cypress
  • Knowledge of Azure and PaaS services and related technologies such as CosmosDB and SQL
  • Good collaboration skills, with the ability to work in pairs and/or ensembles and with TDD

We know that some candidates are less likely to apply for a role if they don’t meet all the criteria in the job description. At Co-op, we're committed to building a diverse and inclusive working environment, so if you'd like to apply for this role but your experience doesn't quite meet every point, we'd still encourage you to apply. You may be just the right candidate for the job or other roles we have available.

Why Co-op?

As a Co-op colleague, we can offer you a competitive salary and great benefits package which includes 30% off Co-op branded products in our food stores (as well as other discounts on Co-op products and services). You’ll also get:

  • An annual bonus (based on personal and business performance)
  • 28 days holiday (rising to 32 with service) plus bank holidays
  • A pension with up to 10% employer contributions
  • Access to a subsidised onsite gym (at our Manchester HQ)
  • Coaching and training to support your learning and career development
  • Wagestream – a money management app that gives you access to a percentage of your pay as you earn it
  • YuLife – an app that rewards you for exercising with discounts and vouchers for your favourite brands

Building an inclusive work environment

At Co-op, we’re proud to do things a different way. As one of the world’s largest co-operatives, owned by millions of members, community is at the heart of what we do. Since our Co-op was founded in 1844, we’ve had a clear social purpose, and everything we do as a business helps to build a fairer world for our members, customers, colleagues, and communities.

We’re actively building diverse teams and we welcome applications from everyone. If you have a disability, we can make reasonable adjustments to our recruitment process according to your needs. We're also part of the Disability Confident scheme, meaning we'll always offer an interview to disabled candidates who apply through the scheme if they meet the minimum criteria for a job.

We'll ask whether you’d like to be considered under the Disability Confident scheme when you apply.

If we invite you to take part in the recruitment process for any of our jobs, we’ll ask you if you need any reasonable adjustments to enable you to participate.
