Tesco’s Blinbox goes on hiring spree

Blinkbox, the digital and entertainment arm of UK retail giant Tesco, is looking to hire around 100 staff this year as it moves into digital music and books. 

The firm, which is best known for its Blinkbox movie and TV store, said it is building a 30,000 square foot digital entertainment hub in Farringdon, London, to house these new services, and is looking to match the 100 staff it hired in 2012.

“Blinkbox are out in force at Silicon Milkroundabout this weekend and we’d love to hear from you,” the firm said in a blog post – referring to a tech startup recruitment event in London on Saturday and Sunday. Among the jobs up for grabs are Android, iOS and .NET developer positions.

Tesco acquired video rental service Blinkbox in 2011 and uses the service to power its recently-launched ad-supported Clubcard TV VOD offering, which went live in March.
