So, if you would like to get in on the ground floor of a fantastic journey to help our customers, this is the team to join!

WHO YOU ARE

“At IKEA, you’re welcome no matter where you come from, what you believe, and what you look like. We don’t even care how you have furnished your home. We’re interested in you simply because you’re you. Our different views, backgrounds, and personalities make us better understand our customers, give us more fun at work and spark more and better ideas. Perhaps your unique take on something could lead to a great idea that creates a better everyday life for the many people


We are looking for an engineer that enjoys building things that makes an impact with our customers. Are you excited about technology and want a chance to be part of building better digital products for our customers? Look no further, you have arrived at the right opportunity!

Our teams come from diverse backgrounds, coming together in the mission of creating a better everyday life for the many people over a number of touchpoints for the customers. In a true cross functional team with designers, data analysts, engineering manager, agile coach, and product owner we make this a reality.

We expect all team members to contribute to good software design principles and keep each other accountable for the principles decided upon in the team. We use these principles to guide the team when looking for new solutions to problems, such as bringing in new tools, frameworks or creating new solutions.
You relish the opportunity to contribute to the team’s internal metrics and the product metrics. You would be part of defining how and what we measure to define success from an engineering perspective.

The IKEA culture and values are very much a part of our business and day to day work life. For you to thrive and grow with IKEA it’s important for us that you share our values! You can read more regarding our values and life at IKEA on our website https://about.ikea.com/en/work-with-us

PS. We’re looking for people with skills in frontend or backend if you happen to be well versed in both – even better!
We can teach you the frameworks and technologies, don’t worry if you don’t know it all.
If you’re interested – our current tech stack in frontend is React and Typescript with the CI pipeline in GitHub actions. Our backend is written primarily in Golang (hosted on GCP, on Cloud Run as primary storage, however, we are in the process of improving and rewriting parts of this.).
