● Lead software engineers
● Platform engineers
● Platform architects
● Security engineers
● Risk and compliance
● Forensic analysts
● SCRUM masters
What is your tech stack?
We are always exploring new technology and languages to see how they can benefit our platform. Right now we’re working with AWS, Java, Kubernetes and Golang on the back-end and ReactJS on the front-end.
It can surprise people who only think of Wawa as a convenience store, but we’re very passionate and proactive about using the latest technology to build our digital experiences. There’s a lot of room for our tech team to try new things and bring them to the table.
Tell us about what it's like to work at Wawa HQ.
Wawa is a people-first organization, which means we care about our people over everything else and treat them fairly. The culture is very supportive and collaborative — everyone works together. And, we really give you the opportunity to spread your wings.
We have many people who have worked here for 15 to 40 years, which says a lot. You can go to the cafeteria and eat lunch next to the CEO. It’s the kind of place where everyone is happy to come to work on a Monday morning. And there’s coffee everywhere.
How does Wawa give back?
Wawa proudly gives back through The Wawa Foundation, a 501 (c)(3) non-profit corporation focused on building stronger communities in three areas of health, hunger and everyday heroes. Since its inception in 2014, The Wawa Foundation has contributed more than $100 million to non-profit community organizations. Wawa and The Wawa Foundation are proud to support seven National Partners with in-store customer fundraising campaigns and provides its associates with year round volunteer and participation opportunities with waived registration and fundraising at community events such as JDRF One Walks, LLS Light the Night, Special Olympics Polar Plunges, among others.
At Red Roof, our corporate campus, our associates support some mentoring programs directly including a Big Brother, Big Sister program called Beyond School Walls that brings kids into HQ to get on-the-job mentorship in a real world environment, as well as a partnership through Cristo Rey High School that also pairs high school students with job opportunities. Our Product Development team hosts Future Food Scientist workshops giving middle schoolers from throughout our communities a closer look at careers in the food sciences.
