Description

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, fulfillment (automated warehouses, store pick solutions), back-office systems to delivery solutions, all crafted by our passionate team of software engineers. We have a rapidly expanding portfolio of amazing software products being developed in Barcelona, working closely with our development teams in our other centres around the world.

We use Java to deliver our projects, AWS for all our deployments and GCP for data and Machine Learning. We embrace Agile development techniques, running our projects on Scrum or Kanban. Alongside the ownership and ongoing development of all new functionality, there is particular focus on performance, scalability and maintainability.

We pride ourselves on the following core values: Trust, Collaboration, Autonomy, Learn Fast & Craftsmanship.

We are looking for Java Engineers (all levels of seniority) to join our cross­-functional agile team as we continue to push the boundaries of online shopping.

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.
