Just over two years ago, Hy-Vee’s R&D organization looked much different than it does now.

Hy-Vee is a $10 billion dollar company with 85,000 employees spanning more than 245 stores across eight states in the Midwest.

HST, which is housed just outside of Des Moines — one of the fastest growing cities in the Midwest, is part of Hy-Vee’s vision for the future. The 104,000-square-foot facility houses 230 information technology, digital development and brand marketing employees with space for more. (Des Moines Register, August 2017)

Since HST opened, we now have more than 270 employees in R&D spanning across 12 different teams. The engineering organization has increased 200% in a mere 18 months. As we’ve scaled, we’ve solved a lot of hard problems and developed a multitude of new features for our customers.
