Ocado Technology builds all of its own solutions in-house. It’s technology in the true sense of the word and their technology estate is very broad and deep: real-time control systems, robotics, vision systems, machine learning, simulation, data science, forecasting systems, routing systems, inference engines, big data.
The partnership with Questers will enable Ocado Technology to grow its in-house development division, and to support ambitious projects such as rewriting from scratch their end to end software platform to run in the cloud, refresh all their technology stacks and develop a more scaleable solution that can be used by other retailers all over the world.
In turn, this has created over 200 engineering roles and opportunities for the brightest and most talented developers and specialists in the rapidly expanding technology industry in Bulgaria.
Questers, an expert in providing EU-based dedicated technology teams, was chosen as the strategic partner for this critical software development due to Questers’ depth of knowledge, understanding and expertise in multi-location management, with an outstanding reputation for accessing and recruiting world class technology talent for tech specialist companies.
Questers culture of supporting agile development was also a key strategic fit for Ocado who likens their mindset closer to Facebook or Google rather than that of a traditional retailer. Ocado enjoys strong relationships with technology companies such as Google, AWS, Salesforce, Apple and Panasonic. These relationships have little to do with the value of the services or products Ocado buys from these companies, but more about recognising Ocado’s disruptive nature, buying into their ambitious vision.
This is not a typical near-shore resourcing project but a long term strategic partnership with Ocado Technology to grow a highly skilled tech operation and effectively deliver cutting edge solutions.Alexander Drangajov, CEO of Questers
