Flexibility with regards to travelling to other Ocado sites on occasion will be required.

You will work on testing and improving our most innovative automated engineering products/systems to make sure they're fit for purpose, so if you're looking to move into a position where you'll make a tangible impact to the profitability of a business as a whole - this is the opportunity for you.
