Ocado Group’s mission is to transform online grocery through cutting-edge technology and automation. Our pioneering Ocado Smart Platform (OSP), which combines our proprietary end-to-end software systems with our physical fulfilment assets, offers grocery retailers a faster, more flexible, cost-efficient and low-risk way to develop an online grocery business.

Within Ocado Group sits Platform Implementation, whose mission is ‘to orchestrate the implementation of Ocado’s platforms globally’. This department focuses on the full programme management life cycle of the implementation of our highly automated, multi-million pound Customer Fulfilment Centres (CFCs) - from pre-deal, through to the design, construction, installation, testing and ‘go-live’ phases (with all the process and portfolio management in between). This department is instrumental in ensuring we deliver these CFCs on time, to budget, and to the specific requirements of each client.

Within Platform Implementation the Integration Engineering Specialists (within Product Application Engineering) ensures all of the physical elements of our OSP fit together within the building. Working closely with multiple departments across the business from Product Specialists and IT Infrastructure through to external Architects and Structural Engineers, the Integration team create detailed Technical 3D CAD models during the design phase of Ocado’s multi-million pound Customer Fulfilment Centres (CFCs) around the world.

As a Technical Design Integrator you will take designs from concept and turn them into detailed engineering reality. You will provide design solutions as to the integration of MHE to MHE and MHE to Building structure and M&E Services to support the global delivery of cutting edge warehouses around the world for our clients.
