Ocado are no longer just an online grocery retailer!

Based on our ground-breaking Ocado Smart Platform technology, we are now designing and implementing world class automated warehouse systems for prestigious clients in the UK and around the world!

Due to this exciting and rapid growth of the business, we are now actively looking for Field Engineers to join the team to directly support with all in field activities.

Your previous field engineering experience as well as your demonstrable success in the  installation & commissioning of complex products and / or systems will enable you to maintain an in depth and practical product knowledge across all of our products both developed in house and externally sourced.

Your excellent technical and practical competence relating to automation and general engineering coupled with your ability to deliver projects on time and within approved budgets will allow you to support the business during the manufacture, install & commissioning phases of these new automated fulfilment centres.

As Field Engineer you will be responsible for resolving any engineering issues as well as providing valuable feedback to head office based Product Engineers & technical support colleagues.

Excitingly, the role of Field Engineer will also give you the opportunity to work closely with your Product Development colleagues to receive these new, cutting edge products and developments and be actively engaged with the early field deliveries.

Our Field Engineers have a range of specialisations, including mechanical structures, plastics moulding, functional safety, conveyor systems, electromechanical systems and robotics. Equally they are all comfortable working in a dynamic, fast paced environment and are able to innovatively design & propose alternative solutions when faced with barriers.

The successful Field Engineer will be able to perform unsupervised, under pressure on own initiative often with geographical isolation from other engineering colleagues for long periods of time. They will also be willing and able to travel on short notice and for 1-2 weeks at a time as this role is predominately field based.
