What is the hiring process like at Ocado Technology?

Pros

People are very friendly. Salaries are competitive They embrace new technologies (a bit slow, but at least they do) Wide variety of domains you can switch internally from front end to embedded and then to AI if you want Recently they started offering stock to their employees

Cons

Some things get waaaaay to long to get approved, we are talking about 6 month to get your team's API externalized. The management team in Sofia is a bit weak, which leads to many social escalations for example people wining for more money in public channels. Hiring process is a bit wanky and unbalanced. They ask everybody the same questions... and it really depends who is interviewing you. A candidate might be interviewed by a team which won't want him and still accept and just to put him into other team which hasn't even seen the person.

Advice to Management

Every stream should interview their own candidates. Be more strict with winey employees. Don't side with your team members if they are wrong, your job is not only to support but also to guide. Don't be scared from people with side hustles, they won't steal you code and will not work on them in their working hours. Don't be so afraid from home office, start measuring performance before and after home office was enforced and if you have data then make decisions.
