We’re Ocado Technology.
We are responsible for developing in-house almost all of the software that powers Ocado.com, the world's largest online-only grocery retailer, including their end-to-end ecommerce, fulfilment and logistics platform.
Our technology estate is very broad and deep: real-time control systems, robotics, vision systems, machine learning, simulation, data science, forecasting systems, routing systems, inference engines,, cloud, IoT, big data and many more.
We are engaged in an ambitious project to rewrite from scratch our end to end software platform to run in the cloud, refresh all our technology stacks, and wipe out our accumulated technical debt. We have also developed a new modular and scalable hardware platform for building our highly automated warehouses called Customer Fulfilment Centres (CFCs). The combination of these software and hardware platforms is what we call the Ocado Smart Platform (OSP), which we will use to put some of the largest retailers around the world online using our disruptive business model.
