Ocado Engineering

Munkaköri leírás

At Ocado Technology we design and build the platform that powers Ocado, the world’s largest online-only grocery retailer. Beyond this, we are putting the world’s retailers online, including Morrisons (UK), Kroger (USA), Casino (France), Sobeys (Canada) and ICA (Sweden). We provide an entire platform from mobile apps, website, fulfilment (automated warehouses, store pick solutions), back-office systems to delivery solutions, all crafted by our passionate team of software engineers.

Store Pick gives retailers the option to pick and deliver customers’ orders from their existing stores. It is currently powering a large scale operation with more coming soon. Our system consists of a backend planning and orchestrating the whole operation, a mobile app used by in-store personnel to execute the actual work and a web app giving overview of the work progress as well as some admin functions. It has to be scalable, flexible and fast in order to meet our customers’ needs. To build a world class solution, we are using state of the art technologies from AWS (EC2, DynamoDb, SQS, SNS), Android, React, Redux, Node writing code in Java, Scala, Kotlin and Typescript.
