Hardware and home improvement retailer Lowe’s Cos. Inc. plans to add 300 more staffers to its information technology team of 1,000. A nationwide search is under way to fill positions in application development, business analysis, communications network, e-commerce, engineering, program management and project management.

There are 10 listings under “E-Commerce” on the Lowes.com/career web page, including Design Manager, Online Product Owner-Mobile Applications and Online Search Manager. Other job titles are listed on the web site.

The positions, 150 of which are new, will be based at the company’s Mooresville, N.C. headquarters.

“The walls of our stores have expanded as our customers and employees rely on technology to plan and execute their home improvement needs,” says Mike Brown, chief information officer, Lowe’s, No. 91 in the Internet Retailer Top 500 Guide. Lowe’s is looking for knowledgeable and talented I.T. professionals to help the company supporting a “technology infrastructure that provides the best platforms and tools to exceed our customers’ expectations and create a first-class work environment for our employees,” he says.

I.T. hiring is on the upswing around the country. A recent report by I.T. management consulting firm Janco Associates Inc. showed 1.16% growth nationally in April I.T. hiring.
