Job Description

We’re Ocado Technology. We design and build the systems and technology that power, the world's largest online-only grocery retailer and, the world’s fastest growing online supermarket!

Behind the public face, we write and build all our own systems, from website to warehouse control systems, van routing systems to mobile apps, every system involved in the operation has been carefully crafted by our large team of talented software engineers. We are constantly pushing the limits of what our technology can do. To accelerate this work, we are expanding our development team and building our newest development centre in Barcelona, Spain. We are a rapidly expanding development team, backed by an established tech company from the UK. We plan to grow this new development centre to 200 people over the next 3 years - and that's based on our existing growth curve and conservative growth estimates (rather than the potential growth of a startup!)

As our business evolves, we are writing a next generation, cloud based grocery platform, Ocado Smart Platform, which will be used to run Ocado, Morrisons and many other international retailers in the future. Join us as a Senior Java Developer and you’ll have the opportunity to work across a wide range of technology, with some exceptionally smart people, to create an unrivalled platform.

You will be part of our OSP Flux team which is a brand new team working in our newest development centre in Barcelona, building cutting edge technology for our OSP platform. The team will be working on the evolution of an in-house Complex Event Processing platform being used to monitor all aspects of our OSP e-commerce platform, from business and transactional metrics to server health status.

We use Java, relying on Spring and Akka to deliver our projects. We use AWS for all our new deployments. We embrace agile development techniques, and run our projects as Scrum or Kanban projects as part of a cross functional team. Alongside the ownership and ongoing development of all new functionality, there is particular focus on performance, scalability and maintainability. We are looking for a dedicated Senior Java Developer to join our OSP Flux team as we continue to push the boundaries of online shopping.
