About Us

Our teams are putting the world’s retailers online using the cloud, robotics, AI, and IoT. We provide services to partner clients globally via our innovative advanced robotics technology, known as the Ocado Smart Platform (“OSP”), this drives our highly automated, multi-million pound Customer Fulfilment Centres (CFCs).

About the role

The Advanced Technology division of Ocado Technology focuses on the development and application of specifically complex and emergent technologies that are strategically critical to the future of Ocado. It functions as a collection of small, highly independent teams, each with the dynamism and ambition of a start-up, while benefiting from the tools and resources of a major tech company. The Autonomous Mobility team is looking to reimagine the ‘last mile’ – making grocery delivery cheaper, easier and greener than going to the shop yourself. We’re working with autonomy and vehicle partners to develop road-going self-driving goods vehicles for use around the world – one of the most challenging and exciting technologies of our lifetime.

We now have an exciting opportunity for a Senior Product Manager to join the Autonomous Mobility team, working closely with our internal engineering teams and external technology partners (e.g. Oxbotica and Wayve) to define these innovative products at the early stages of development and take accountability for their successful delivery, ensuring they meet the needs of end-customers, retailer partners and the Ocado Group business.

At Ocado Technology we expect our Product Managers to demonstrate the following attributes – Lead in Product, Drive Customer & Commercial Value, Master your Domain; Shape its future, Elevate Product Mindset.
