    I have been working at Ocado Technology full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Ocado Technology and its highly-talented engineers never stop learning. They're constantly pushing the boundaries of what's possible and innovating at every step. From senior management to junior engineers, Ocado Technology understands just how important the technology that powers the business is. Combined with a vibrant culture that strives to create the best possible work environment. Ocado Technology is an excellent place to work.

    Cons

    Whilst Ocado Technology does everything it can to make the head office location easily accessible, it's can be somewhat awkward for those living in London.

    Great to hear that the work is still interesting and fresh even after 5 years here and that you like the culture so much. In case anybody reading this would like more info about commuting from London, we offer interest-free season ticket loans for the train (plus free shuttle to and from the station). Train from Hatfield to Kings Cross is about 21 mins. We also have parking and electric charge points.

    I have been working at Ocado Technology full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Exciting projects and tech stack. Working with some very smart people. Not much for red tape.

    Cons

    There are quite a few silos and quite a few "secrets" circling around. Still some finger pointing (that wasn't me, must've been someone else).

    I have been working at Ocado Technology full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Ocado Technology never fails to bore. With projects ranging from robotics, custom wireless protocols, highly performant real-time control software and industry leading e-commerce sites and mobile apps, there is something for everyone. Everyone is afforded a generous amount of autonomy and there is next to no red tape. Somehow, even with about 1000 technology employees, it still feels like a start-up, such is the level of constant innovation and evolution.

    Cons

    Ocado Technology is hugely ambitious. With a lack of employees to achieve everything we'd like to, this can sometimes translate to frustration. In addition, the broad range of projects and disciplines leads to a technology department which sometimes feels disjointed and siloed, despite the best efforts of the management team.

    Thanks for taking the time to write a review, and thanks for the great feedback about the culture and tech. Looking at your Cons comment, we are hiring at a very fast rate so hopefully you'll start to notice some of these pressures ease soon.

    I have been working at Ocado Technology full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    There are some really motivating projects at Ocado, including open source project for education Code For Life and innovative technology, as well as a good culture thanks to the brilliant and awesome people we get to know and to work with here. Autonomy and flexibility really help foster innovation, and we have regular team building events. The new office in Trident place is really good too.

    Cons

    The location, Hatfield, is for me the biggest drawback because it's a bit isolated compared to bigger cities and usually makes for a long commute.

    I have been working at Ocado Technology full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Lots of freedom/autonomy to make technical decisions and try new things out. Not afraid of experimenting and using cutting edge technology. Able to move teams with options from PLC programming to control system software and monitoring to frontend web development and devops/cloud, there's something there for everyone.

    Cons

    Mildly chaotic environment as it is expanding so fast, and the location of the offices is not great. Hatfield is not an exciting place to be.
