Although Burberry is a very well-known FTSE 100 company, we have very few tech boundaries; our microservices platform was recently implemented on then-new serverless AWS tech - so successfully hat we gave a talk at AWS Summit in Las Vegas.

We continually trial betas of AWS and other tech solutions to see how we could use them, while having regular calls with AWS to understand and trial new features and capabilities.

We predominantly use nodejs for backend with react on the frontend. Infrastructure as Code is either Terraform or AWS CDK. To support all of this we are building an internal open source shared library.

We're big on automation. We have gitlab for CI, snyk for security testing , an internal performance engineering team ensuring your solutions meet high standards.

Our platforms and applications are extremely stable, and we focus on building new features and trialing new tech. The number of critical incidents has reduced significantly over the past few years thanks to our investment in Observability, including teams being responsible for their application in production (we call it Run What You Wrote).

The Burberry brand is known around the world, and our technology must support customers everywhere. Localisation is the key part of our strategy - we tailor our customer experiences online in many regions. From overcoming global technical restrictions, to building for users on all devices, we need to give Burberry consumers the highest quality luxury digital retail experience wherever they may be.
