What you'll do at

We need super smart engineers from all levels to help us build one of the best engineered e-commerce platform in the world (big talk we know, but that is our goal!). Our engineers combine creativity, curiosity, and drive to continuously perfect and revolutionize Jet from the inside out. We are looking to bring more intellectually curious engineers who are passionate about technology in general (Jet is a technology first company and prides itself on its culture of learning and knowledge sharing and we want all our engineers to be as passionate as we are!) 

The Environment

Our platform is largely an event driven platform implemented via a microservice architecture. The platform runs in the cloud and uses a large number of technologies and middle ware. The bulk of backend code is written in the functional style (F#) and our system of record is an event sourced system (essentially a log of all actions on the platform).  We use a mix of Kafka, Redis, Elastic Search, Azure SQL, Event Store and Azure Storage for our data stores. About 50% of the platform runs on Linux and the rest Windows (although we move into more containerization, we will see a shift towards Linux).

Our Privacy Statement for Jet websites

We understand how important your privacy is to you.

Our aim is to be as clear and open as possible about what we do and why we do it. Jet understands the importance to its users of their online privacy.

This Privacy Policy regulates the use by Jet and its partner companies of the information you provide when using Jet websites.

This Jet website is run by Walmart Inc. ("we", "us", "our")

This Privacy Policy applies only to the processing of your employment application by Jet and your use of the recruitment services on this site.  Please note that we may change our Privacy Policy from time to time.  In this case, the updated version will be posted on this site.

Information we collect

You can have a look through the site without giving us any of your personal information (though, as mentioned below, we do automatically collect certain information with respect to usage of our site).

If you decide to apply for a position with Jet through the site or an agency, Jet will need to collect and process your personal information, including:

  • Name, address and postcode - We need this to send you all of the recruitment information.
  • E-mail address - We send a confirmation of your application by email. We may use e-mail or telephone to speak to you about similar vacancies unless you have asked us not to. We may also contact you by e-mail if you have only partially completed an application. But don’t worry. We won’t fill up your inbox with boring emails.
  • Contact telephone numbers - If there are any problems with your application, or we have to clarify anything with you, we need to be able to contact you quickly. Again, we certainly won’t call you for any other reason.
  • Your application – Well, we definitely need this so we can assess you. Such personal information will include details of your skills (including education, professional qualifications and training), employment history and referees. You should only provide the personal information required by our application template. This template includes a question about any adjustments that may be required should you be invited for an interview or assessment.
  • Criminal records checks – For some roles, we might need to enquire about previous criminal convictions or carry out criminal records checks which are relevant to the role. If this is necessary, we’ll make you aware of this as early in the recruitment process as possible.
  • Other relevant personal information specified during the online application process that is relevant to recruitment.

How we use the information we collect

The personal information you provide will be used to:

  • Process your application.
  • Consider you for the position you have applied for, and any upcoming vacancies that are suitable (unless you have opted not to be contacted in respect of subsequent vacancies).
  • Fulfil Jet's legal obligations.
  • Carry out internal record keeping.
  • Provide general information (which does not identify individuals) and statistics to help Jet develop its websites and services.
  • Make up part of your personnel records if your application is successful. However, this will only be for as long as it’s relevant to your employment at Jet.
  • Approach your nominated referees for the purposes of obtaining references.
  • Carry out equal opportunities monitoring (see below).

Where you provide personal information about somebody else, like your referees, you should always ask them beforehand to get their consent.

We also use information collected through cookies – the way in which we do this and the reasons why are outlined below in the section on Cookies we use and why we use them.
