Ocado Group is hiring a

Functional Test Analyst

Hatfield, United Kingdom

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.

The Client CFC Testing team, within the Client Readiness department, is responsible for ensuring that all OSP software and hardware within CFCs are appropriately tested, using a common set of testing tools and methodology to ensure uniformity across all global projects. This team is therefore vital in ensuring a seamless handover to our OSP clients.

We are now looking for additional Functional Test Analysts to join the team, to take responsibility for the planning, preparation, management and execution of Business Acceptance Testing and front line go-live support on future CFCs. Given current projects for our client Aeon in Japan, being able to speak Japanese would be a bonus (but not a prerequisite).

Depending on the project, this position may be based at our Head Office in Hatfield, or our facility in Welwyn Garden City. Extensive travel to sites across the UK/internationally (with extended stays) will also be required/expected, in order to effectively support existing as well as new client contracts.
