Our journey so far
Jacopo, Back End Developer
"Since joining eLab Tech I’ve been working on technologies that I didn’t even know before; from Hybris to Solr, passing from Groovy and others, getting in touch with Docker, Kubernetes and microservices for the first time.
When I first started I had lots of passion and a little bit of knowledge, but being supported and encouraged has helped me grow. The Career Pathways are well defined and we are incentivized to take time to study for our own personal development.
It’s a good working environment, ready to accept the many peculiarities of anyone."
Omar, Senior Front End Developer
"I started as a Junior Developer, but in just a short period of time I was promoted to a Senior Developer.
Career Paths are accurately and easily explained in a format we call “Career Pathways” where you can discover your focus points to help you reach the next level, and you can discuss all the steps with your manager during your regular catch ups.
I also have to mention that if you reach your goals (set by yourself) there is a bonus up for grabs!"
Sara, Technical Lead - Back End
“Working at A.S. Watson within the eLab Tech team has been a great opportunity for my career! I am an active part of a truly international company, and work with highly skilled colleagues in different areas of the eCommerce stack.
Hybris is of course our main focus, we moved to Cloud some years ago, we use Dynatrace, Spartacus and we adopted Agile methodology.
The career opportunities are focused on reachable and clear objectives, which means your commitment is always rewarded and appreciated.”
Andrea, Senior Tech Lead
- Back End
"I joined the team over 3 years ago and it has been an amazing adventure so far! I have grown a lot during my path at eLab Tech, not only professionally, but also personally.
I now manage four teams of developers. My growth was made possible thanks to a focus on both personal and team objectives alongside prioritising constructive feedback.
If you are looking for ambitious challenges in a great working environment with a good work-life balance, eLab Tech is the right place for you!"
