Now you know about the wider business it's time to focus on technology!
It goes without saying that, as with most modern companies, IT is the enabler of everything that Wren Kitchens does, but did you know that all of these IT systems are built in-house by the 70 strong development team?
Did you know that Wren Kitchens' team is on the cutting edge of technology, making the most of cutting edge tech including:
- HTML5 Canvas
This tech team are led by tech people; Developers who have been there and done it meaning they know what is possible and understand realistic timescales for pieces of work. They work to agile methodologies and the devs get solid documentation, pulled together by dedicated BAs and prioritised by technical PMs.
Wren are now looking to strengthen their in-house development teams by recruiting a number of Software Developers to reinforce the good work that has shaped these teams over the last couple of years and to provide the tech backup for the 1200 jobs that Wren are creating in their upcoming £120million expansion.
Wren are able to accommodate experienced Developers who want to help take Wren's proprietary 2D / 3D CAD package to the next level and really push their technical abilities to their maximum. This CAD package is one of Wren's secret weapons when it comes to providing the best level of service to their customers. The CAD Planner tool allows Kitchen Designers the ability to build a kitchen in 2D plan, ensuring no collisions between units and compliance with regulations / manufacturing capabilities, before moving the kitchen into highly detailed 3D environment (powered by an in-house Unity3D team), enabling customers to see and feel how their new kitchen will look in their own home before committing to a purchase.
Key challenges for this team at the moment are:
- Ensuring the Planner keeps up with the complex business rules that are constantly changing across the business as the range expands
- Speeding up integrations with 3D systems
- Integrating with VR systems for use in showrooms
