Who Are We

We are Ocado Technology, a technology-led global software and robotics platform, providing unique end-to-end solutions for online grocery retailers around the world. We are powering the future of online retail through disruptive innovation. Join us to create world-class systems at the intersection of cloud platforms, big data, machine learning, software development, and beyond.

As our business evolves, we are writing a next generation, cloud based customer order fulfilment platform, Ocado Smart Platform, which is used by retailers around the globe and planning to rapidly expand its customer base. Join us and you’ll have the opportunity to work across a wide range of high class technology, with exceptionally smart and collaborative people, to create an unrivalled platform.

In-Store Fulfilment (StorePick) is an end-to-end cloud solution that enables retail grocery stores to fulfil online orders by utilising pickers, who manually collect and load orders into delivery vans. A plethora of optimization algorithms are being run for each order to optimise the process - from shortest path to collect the goods to orders grouping and delivery optimizations. A dedicated Android app guides pickers along the way and a web dashboard helps store managers to understand and control online order volumes.
