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:
  • Work in a flexible, agile manner within Engineering Families, whilst maintaining appropriate levels of challenge and governance
  • Ensure security is built in by design, products are delivered securely with client and employee data appropriately protected
  • Define Security Non-Functional Requirements for each project and ensure that they are fulfilled prior to going into service, ensuring the relevant technology standards are applied to specific projects
  • Liaise with the Information Security Testing Team to ensure that Ethical Hacking, Code Reviews, Application Scanning and Infrastructure Scanning is conducted.
  • Provide end to end assurance of IT products across the Group, throughout its lifecycle, providing approvals where appropriate
  • Articulate risk in technical and non-technical terminology so that it can be interpreted by IT and Business individuals alike

What we're looking for:
  • Great engagement - The ability to build strong relationships with a variety of stakeholders and influence decisions in a proactive manner.
  • Ability to enhance - A strong technical understanding of security disciplines to ensure systems are designed and built securely and help continually improve our security posture.
  • Able to speak up - The ability to challenge where things are not right.
  • Attention to detail - to verify solutions and gain assurance they are fit for purpose through demonstrable evidence of controls
  • Strong understanding of the changing threat landscape and how this may affect our systems.
  • Self drive - The ability to work independently to deliver expected outcomes
  • A relevant information security qualification from SANS, ISC2, ISACA, or a Computer Science degree and/or MSC in Information Security is desirable but not essential.

In return you'll get:
  • Colleague discount across the multi-brands - Sainsbury's, Argos and Habitat
  • Holiday allowance
  • Bonus scheme
  • Pension plan
  • Special offers on gym memberships, restaurants, holidays, retail vouchers and more

Work-life balance is important to us, so we offer our colleagues as much flexibility as possible in line with the needs of their role. We trust them to decide how, where and when they work, combining remote and collaborative working with a flexible approach to hours, giving them plenty of time and space for life outside of work whilst delivering against our business goals.
