Lowe's is building a tech team in
the heart of Charlotte. Connect with us today to learn how you could be a part of it.
The Lowe’s technology team is on a mission to be the leader in home improvement and retail technology.
A best-in-class technology team is critical to our tech transformation. We're hiring up to 2,000 additional software engineers, product managers, architects, infrastructure engineers and data scientists and analysts over the next several years to reimagine our systems and products to empower associates and deliver delightful experiences for customers. For us, success is when customers are focused on experiences – not technology.
Join us for the opportunity to create beautiful, intuitive and harmonized experiences enabled by products, data and devices. This will be a transformation journey with a team that is passionate, humble and ready to take this opportunity to make a big impact in people's lives.
Charlotte’s South End will be home to the new Lowe’s tech hub.
Lowe’s is undergoing a company-wide transformation designed to sharpen our focus on retail fundamentals, simplify our business, develop great customer and associate experiences and innovate to become a world-class retailer.
Investing in our technology is critical to accomplish that. Technology needs to be at the center of everything we do. In fact 10 out of our 13 strategic priorities are underpinned by technology.
Charlotte’s South End will be the home to our new Lowe’s tech hub in the Design Center Tower located at the corner of West Boulevard and Camden Road. Adjacent to the Lynx Blue Line light rail, the Rail Trail, restaurants, and available parking and housing, the Design Center Tower will provide attractive amenities for our team. Until construction is complete in 2021, we will occupy the Charlotte Plaza, immediately launching our uptown presence. We believe this location will best position us to attract and retain top technology talent we need to meet our goals while also providing an opportunity for us to establish an even greater presence in our hometown.
