Android Developer - Store Pick

Sofia, Bulgaria

     Ocado Technology is the biggest online only supermarket. We exceed in delivering groceries from our highly automated warehouses to our customers’ homes.

More than 80 people work in our Sofia office and we continue to grow.

About the product:

     StorePick, part of OSP, is a system for fulfilling client orders from a supermarket. The Android app is used for guiding staff in the supermarket to do their job: what groceries to pick, where to stock them, and when to load them into a vehicle. Sofia team members got to go to the UK to try it out themselves in order to get the first hand experience. Some of the challenges we are now facing are:

  • Implementing new functionalities
  • Improving supermarket staff productivity by measuring their performance and carrying out A/B tests
  • Improving UX, which often results in complete redesign of some of the screens
  • Lowering battery and network footprint
  • Adopting latest Android architecture components and libraries
  • Kotlinize the whole app

  • You are a team player and have strong collaboration skills, but also have the autonomy to find your own way.

Responsibilities within the team:

  • Work on a large project with a team of developers, a product owner and a designer
  • Develop new software components, and extend and improve existing ones
  • Take part in discussions about new features and improvements
