What our people say

“It does feel like a start-up working here because everything is so new – nearly everyone has joined in the last two years. We’re growing fast, and there are new faces all the time, but everyone integrates really quickly. We’re like a family. I was taken on as a junior at Argos, but within just a few months, I was promoted to my development role.”

Zubar – Software Development Engineer

“As a developer on the digital store browser platform, I work on the tablets – a digital version of our famous printed catalogue. I also develop the kiosks, which are like unmanned tills in the stores. I came to Argos because I’d heard about their ambitious digital transformation programme. It’s great, because all that change pushes you out of your comfort zone, and encourages you to learn more.”
