Lowes has just announced plans for a massive new development in Charlotte’s South End.
Their new 23-story 357,000 square feet ‘tech center’ will house up to 2,000 additional technology professionals, according to a statement from the company.
Salaries will vary for the new employees, but the average will be just over $117,000.
Lowe’s expects to fill the first 400 new tech positions in the next year and plans to begin hiring for these roles immediately. Candidates can visit Jobs.lowes.com/technology. Open positions include software and infrastructure engineers, data scientists, analysts, architects, user experience (UX) and user interface (UI) professionals, and artificial intelligence and machine learning engineers.
The new employees will temporarily be housed at The Charlotte Plaza at 201 S. College Street until the new South End facility opens.
“We’re excited to stand up our new global technology center here in North Carolina to continue to drive our company’s growth,” said Marvin R. Ellison, Lowe’s president and CEO, who joined the company in July 2018. “Locating our new facility in the heart of Charlotte, the state’s largest metropolitan area, will enable Lowe’s to attract top technology talent and foster collaboration with our teams in our nearby Mooresville headquarters. This team will create technology solutions that will accelerate our commitment to becoming a best-in-class, omni-channel retailer and strengthen our associate and customer experiences.”
The new ‘Design Center Tower’, will be located at 100 W. Worthington Ave. in the heart of South End.
They plan to break ground in August 2019 and start moving in by late 2021.
