Ocado's tech division launches guerrilla recruitment campaign

Ocado’s technology division has launched a highly targeted recruitment drive overnight in a bid to tempt technology experts from some of London’s most high profile firms.

Staff at the technology divisions of companies such as UBS, Skype and Amazon arrived at work this morning to see a series of targeted job advertisements on the doorsteps of their offices, inviting them to apply for a position at Ocado Technology.

Applied overnight using a high powered water jet and a series of stencils, the “clean” job adverts feature comments such as “Fed up of being a drone? Try programming one instead” and “Allowed to pitch ideas to your CEO? Then implement code in 2 hours? Thought not.”

The online grocer is looking to tempt designers, software engineers and technicians to apply for a range of positions within the technology division. Potential recruits have also been invited to an Ocado Technology recruitment pop-up at Leather Lane market during their lunch breaks to find out more about the division and how to apply for roles. 

Paul Clarke, director of technology at Ocado, said: “When most people think of Ocado, they think of the world’s largest online-only grocery retailer, not realising we’re a technology firm at heart which is transforming an entire industry.

“Ocado Technology, the engine room of the business, is a really stimulating and innovative place to work, which is why we have gone to the doorsteps of the best companies in the capital to recruit the brightest tech minds.”
