Sorry, this vacancy is now closed

Closing date

40 hours per week
Contract type
Hatfield (Head Office)

The 10x Technology Team creates value for Ocado in the near-term as well as the long-term by working on speculative projects that push the boundaries of what can be achieved with technology. The team provides an environment in which innovation can thrive and there is plenty of opportunity to collaborate with Ocado’s specialist software and engineering teams in the UK and Ocado’s development offices in Europe.

As a Senior Software Engineer in the 10x Technology Team, you are responsible for working on speculative projects that involve fast prototyping and experimentation. You will be required to obtain and interpret data from various sources, and create products for internal and external consumption. You will design and execute experiments with the collaboration of your peers. You will be required to share your knowledge and expertise with the rest of the company, as well as disseminate complicated information and techniques to senior members of the business. You will be required to contribute to technical blog posts, papers, patent applications and open sourcing.

You are a collaborative, entrepreneurial T-shaped person who enjoys the challenge of continuous self-improvement.

What we're looking for

Expert in at least one of:

  • Rapid prototyping- applications and interfaces,
  • Multiple programming languages,
  • Functional and OO paradigms 

We recognise the software industry is filled with smart people from so many different backgrounds. If you enjoy being part of the team and if you like: learning fast (through experimentation, self-motivation etc); being autonomous but able to collaborate (sharing knowledge is important to us); craftsmanship and innovation (we never stop questioning how we can be better), then we look forward to hearing from you.

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 and share schemes, benefits include pension scheme, interest-free season ticket loan, free shuttle bus from Hatfield train station and, of course, healthy Ocado staff discounts (and free delivery) across our Webshops including GroceriesFetch, Sizzle and Fabled. We also have Friday socials on the first Friday of every month, sports clubs such as badminton, running and table tennis (and much more) not to mention our frequently used foosball table.
