Job Description

Ocean CFC Systems - Who are we?

We build the systems that run Ocado’s warehouses, fulfilling hundreds of thousands of customer orders per week for multiple retailers. We use extensive automation (conveyors, cranes, robots and more) to operate at a scale and efficiency that is unrivaled in our industry.

We believe in the power of agile and focus on delivering value incrementally, using data to constantly collect feedback from our systems to guide our future direction. Our teams operate with the freedom to work as they want and to design and build the best solution to business challenges they can.

About you

You're passionate about the quality of software. You have experienced different work environments and you know that separation of development and QA is not the brightest idea. You know that quality is a large part of productivity and makes the software team move faster. You have been at the core of development, participating in every stage of the process, you have worked on the improvement of the process together with your team.

Quality also means testable, simple, maintainable, flexible code and getting fast feedback. You know how to make sure that the story is testable and how to build the testing pyramid for your product. You’re happy to roll up your sleeves and write automated tests, and to help build the infrastructure required to run them. You can get involved with systems design to help ensure it is testable. You have the courage to stop the line if the quality drops. You think scale - quality at scale. You make others think alike.
