A bit about the role

At the heart of Ocado Technology’s automation technology is a semi-autonomous, self-guided vehicle. We call them BOTs and they are critical to our mission. uptime, reliability and performance are everything. 

Our embedded software platform has to control this powerful vehicle with millimetre precision. It has to monitor a range of sensors for diagnostics, predictive maintenance and safety. It has to talk over our world leading wireless solution. The Ocado Smart Platform drives the need for a very smart BOT and it will continue to do so for many years to come.

The delivery of robust, validated and verified embedded software is central to business operations. Using a mixture of verification techniques the teams aim to never regress, maximise synthetic verification and fully utilise physical test facilities.

As a senior engineer, you will be responsible for

  • Technical guidance of Ocado Bot verification projects

You will need

  • A proven track record for solving/debugging complex problems
  • Strong analytical background
