San Antonio based grocery chain looking to expand technology presence

San Antonio based H-E-B just revealed plans to build a state-of-the-art tech center at their Arsenal campus downtown. Beginning in 2020, the grocery giant will build a 150,000 square-foot five-story building on their property in the summer aiming for a completion date by the summer of 2022.

H-E-B will be adding 500 new technology jobs in San Antonio that include design, technology, and e-commerce teams.

โ€œH-E-B continues to have an outsized impact on our community. One of our regionโ€™s greatest strengths is our willingness and eagerness to serve others, and H-E-B consistently leads the way in this respect,โ€ said Graham Weston, co-founder of Rackspace and Geekdom. โ€œThese 1,000 Partners will be digitally innovating from right here in downtown San Antonio, serving Texans everywhere. Another thing we do exceptionally well as a region is celebrate. Today, we should all celebrate H-E-B. 500 new tech jobs in our community is the type of commitment that sets us on an entirely new path.โ€

โ€œThe San Antonio tech center will be become part of the new front door to our Arsenal campus, just as H-E-B Digital is creating a new front door for our customers online and via mobile shopping experiences,โ€ said Jag Bath, H-E-B Chief Digital Officer.

Currently there are over 1,000 Partners in San Antonio that are currently employed with H-E-B’s digital team.
