Who we are

We’re Ocado Technology. We architect and build ground-breaking, game-changing technology solutions that power Ocado, the world's largest online-only grocery retailer. We don’t do off-the-shelf. We don’t do basic. Because we’re writing, building and running all our own software systems, we’re constantly pushing the limits of what technology can do. And when we say ‘we’, we mean ‘you’. Join us and you’ll work across a phenomenal breadth of technology, with incredibly smart people, to create reliable, resilient, scalable and optimised software systems.
Who you are

You are a Front End Developer with a passion for accessible and semantic markup. To you, CSS is an art, and you love JavaScript with all its idiosyncrasies. IE is like your little brother, and you take pride in teaching it new tricks. You understand that change is a given in this fast paced industry, and that excites you. You will enjoy working closely with a team of designers, frontend and backend developers, and you strive to deliver world class user-centred interface solutions across both web and mobile.
What you'll do
  • Working closely with UX and the rest of the Webshop team you'll develop accessible, semantic and beautiful interfaces, using HTML5, CSS3/SASS.
  • Extend the interactivity of the browser with JavaScript frameworks and templating engines such as, Backbone.js, React and Dust.js.
  • Work with internal stakeholders throughout the project life-cycle and ensure project work is completed to brief and timescales.
  • Keep a keen eye on the latest industry trends and techniques and love applying them as part of your day-to-day work.
  • Be part of a team in an agile development environment

What we can offer you
Technically stretching work is a given. We want you to push technological boundaries and create solutions to problems people haven’t even thought about yet; so we’ll give you the freedom and the tools and the playful, stimulating working environment you need to do what’s never been done before. While red tape’s conspicuous by its absence, rewards are plentiful:  as well as a competitive salary, benefits include pension scheme, share schemes, interest-free season ticket loan and, of course, a healthy 15% Ocado staff discount (and free delivery). 
We are a web company. Web development is at our heart. Find out more about Ocado Technology at
