What is it like to work on our Digital and Technology team? Bennett Ryynanen January 21, 2022 We sat down with Lisa, a Software Engineer on our Recommendations Team, to learn about her Best Buy career experience. “One thing that is very fun as a software developer in general is solving problems. You feel very satisfied,” she explains. There’s never a shortage of opportunities for Lisa to share her insights. “Digital and Technology basically makes up the entire organization’s website team. That can include the mobile app, it can include the browser, bestbuy.com. For my team, we help customers find relevant products, and my job in particular is to make those recommendations more relevant and more useful.” When asked about Best Buy’s culture, Lisa shared, “There is a lot of collaboration on pretty much everything. We’ll start any problem that we have as a team. We’ll face a challenge head on and go into a meeting room and whiteboard out all the possible solutions that anyone can come up with, and then maybe talk through what the best option is.” Check out Lisa's video to learn more.

Best Buy has been named to the 2022 JUST 100 list, recognizing companies for doing right by all of their stakeholders, including our employees, customers, communities, and the environment. This is the second year in a row we’ve made this top 100 list, which evaluates and ranks nearly 1,000 of the largest publicly traded companies in the United States. JUST Capital and its partners compile the annual list by polling 3,000 Americans to identify the stakeholders and issues they think companies should focus on most, and then evaluated companies based on what respondents agreed should be prioritized. Once again, this year’s list took a closer look at how companies are supporting their employees – including pay, health and safety, benefits and work-life balance, training, and cultivating a diverse and inclusive workplace. Read the full story.
