“Ocado Technology, powering the future of retail through sustained disruptive technology innovation...”

Ocado Technology is putting the world’s retailers online using the cloud, robotics, AI, and IoT. We develop the innovative software and systems that power Ocado.com, the world’s largest online-only grocery retailer as well as the global ‘Ocado Smart Platform’. With everything from websites to fully autonomous warehouse that we design in-house, our employees need to be specialists in a wide range of technologies to help drive our business.

We champion a value-led culture to get our teams working at their very best and to help create a collaborative working environment that our people love. Core values of Trust, Autonomy, Craftsmanship, Collaboration and Learn Fast help drive our innovative culture.

The 10x Technology Team in the Office of the CTO creates value for Ocado in the near-term as well as the long-term by working on speculative projects that push the boundaries of what can be achieved with technology. The team provides an environment in which innovation can thrive and there is plenty of opportunity to collaborate with Ocado's specialist software and engineering teams in the UK and Ocado's development offices in Europe.

As a Machine Learning Intern in the 10x Technology Team, you will be responsible for working on novel research projects that involve fast system prototyping and experimentation. You will be required to obtain and interpret data from various sources and create products for internal and external consumption. You will design and execute cutting edge experiments that have the potential to enhance or transform the way Ocado uses technology.

You will be immersed into an environment of innovation and collaboration, covering a broad spectrum of disciplines including machine learning, software engineering, mechanical and electrical engineering, and mobile robotics. Within this environment you will apply what you've learnt so far in your education, expand your knowledge, and experience what it is like to work in an R&D environment.

During your internship with us, you will be able to hone in on your existing skills in areas like;

  • Natural Language Processing
  • Computer Vision
  • Reinforcement Learning
  • Time Series Analysis

You are a collaborative, entrepreneurial T-shaped person who enjoys continuous self-improvement.

We want to talk to you if you have exceptional academics (2 A*s or more in Science-related subjects) and are working on a relevant degree at a 2:1 or above. You’ll ideally have some programming experience and a proven track record of great achievements within mechanical & electronics design. We’re looking for innovative problem solvers, someone who can process complex theoretical ideas and apply them to practical systems. You will be an excellent communicator, able to present to various levels within your team and the wider business. Autonomy is key, you will need to be a proactive individual, able to pick up various open ended projects, evaluate the right solutions to the problems identified, and transform your own ideas from paper to reality.

We're looking for 10 week interns starting around July 2021, 6 month interns starting around April 2021 and 12 month interns starting around Sept 2021. If this all sounds good, then we'd love to hear from you!
