Systems Engineer


Fruit Towers - London


IT and Business Change

innocent started with a simple mission: to make drinks that make it easy to do yourself some good. In 1999 we concocted a few smoothies in our kitchen and tested them on people at a music festival; today we’re blending every type of fruit & veg under the sun and selling drinks right across Europe. We have great ambitions: to show the world that you can build a successful business that cares about more than just profit, and to leave things better than we find them. We’re proud to call ourselves Europe’s favourite little healthy drinks company, but we’re still growing. And that means we need more brilliant people who share our ambition, to join in with the next, most exciting, part of our story.

what you'll be doing

At innocent we’re enjoying an exciting period of growth, which means broadening our portfolio of on-premise and cloud based solutions to keep up with the growing demand for new ways of working - we’re looking for a Systems Engineer to join us in the vital role of being the glue between our applications and the rest of the business.

This is a role for someone with good technical experience and a strong desire to leave things better than they find them. Our goal is having our systems and data integrated in ways which will streamline our processes and give us systems that are simple and efficient to use, leaving people to get on with the important work of delivering delicious drinks. 

We’re at the start of an exciting period in which you’ll be responsible for integrating new systems into our estate and upgrading existing on-premise solutions, while always remaining on the lookout for new, innovative applications that can be introduced to push innocent onwards and upwards.

This is a great opportunity for someone who is able to take a step back and understand how our systems work for the business and our partners. You’ll be working in an exciting, growing business and get to work with great people from all over the company as you work to fully understand how our systems work for them.

Working within the Systems Engineering & Integration team, and alongside our wider IT & Business Change team, you’ll be responsible for helping to deliver change that affects the entire business, from improvements to systems to incorporate single sign-on, to APIs and the integration of new applications. You’ll also be responsible for delivering upgrades to our business systems such as MSSQL, Microsoft Dynamics and cloud based solutions.

This is a key role for us as you’ll be part of a team that is crucial in helping us to deliver our IT roadmap, which in turn is key to the business achieving its ambitions for further growth.

you'll have

  • Natural problem solver with great attention to detail who can also understand the bigger picture and apply that understanding to deliver simple solutions to complex problems

you'll get

This is a fantastic opportunity to join a passionate and driven team. You’ll get to work with lots of teams across our business, creating and improving solutions across a number of different types of projects including our financial system, master data solution or forecasting system. You’ll have the opportunity to make a tangible difference to the teams we work closely with across the company.

You will help us to keep doing business the right way – keeping innocent one of the Sunday Times Best Places to Work, using our B Corp status to inspire wider change, and reinforcing our culture of staying little as we grow big.

In return for everything you can bring, we can offer you an exciting, challenging role in a fast-growing and dynamic business, with plenty of career opportunities in the UK and across Europe as well as a competitive rewards package.  We also have some great clubs, a free breakfast and as many smoothies as you can shake a stick at.
