We're Ocado Technology. We design and build the platform that powers Ocado, the world's largest online-only grocery retailer. We're also putting the world's retailers online, including Morrisons (the fastest growing online supermarket in the world), Fetch, Sizzle, and Fabled by Marie Claire.
We write and build all our own systems, from website to warehouse control systems, van routing systems to mobile apps, every system involved in our e-commerce and logistics operation has been carefully crafted by our team of passionate software engineers.
We have a rapidly expanding portfolio of amazing software products being developed in Barcelona. And we work closely with our development teams in our other centres around the world.
You will be part of our Mobile Web services team which is the backbone of the Mobile Development team. Our Mobile Development team creates our suite of mobile apps for iOS and android that now generates over 40% of our weekly orders. Our apps were some of the first transactional shopping apps in the world, and have won industry awards, with features such as the ability to shop offline. They are regularly featured in the app and play stores. As the percentage of weekly orders taken on mobile is growing significantly day by day, it is backed by major new projects within the team, completely redefining what it means to shop for groceries on a mobile device.
We use Java and Scala, relying on Jersey and Spring to deliver our projects, and we use AWS for all our new deployments. We embrace agile development techniques, and run all our projects as Scrum projects as part of the cross functional mobile team. Alongside the ownership and ongoing development of all the web services code, there is particular focus on performance, scalability and maintainability. We are looking for a dedicated Senior Java Web Service Developer to join the team as we continue to push the boundaries of mobile shopping.
