Simulation Java Software Engineer

  • Job Type: Permanent

Description

The Logistics & Supply Chain department, based in the London office, has an opening for an experienced senior software engineer in the Supply Chain Simulation team.
The Supply Chain Simulation team exists to provide a digital twin to the Supply Chain departments production teams, allowing for research into the development of more efficient algorithms, to model the performance of production code in warehouses that have yet to be built, and enabling the business to understand the impact of decisions for our OSP customers. This blog post [âWhere Physical and Digital Worlds Collideâ from Paul Clarke, our CTO](https://www.cambridge.org/core/blog/2020/06/23/data-centric-engineering-where-physical-and-digital-worlds-collide/) provides a good overview on digital twins and how much Ocado values simulations.
Consequently Supply Chain Simulation is an exciting team, comprising software engineers and simulation analysts, one that provides a stimulating environment with a steady stream of interesting, challenging and stretching problems to solve. Creativity, invention, logic, lateral-thinking are just a few of the skills required.

*About the role*
We’re looking for software engineers who can contribute to the design, build and analysis of the model(s) and algorithms that constitute the Supply Chain simulation(s), who are motivated by the impact their work will have on many parts of a global business such as Ocado, and will fully embrace a collaborative,  lateral-thinking, creative and cutting-edge development environment.
We’re keen to find individuals happy to wear a number of different hats:

* Inventor: Being part of the creative process that drives new concepts and innovations.
* Developer: Creating simulations of real-world logistical systems, and building prototypes of the control algorithms that manage such systems.
* Analyst: Generating, parsing, understanding & drilling into large datasets to discover insight that will inform business decisions and system design.
* Researcher: Investigating how to optimise algorithms & business processes to improve the efficiency and profitability of the world’s largest purely online grocery retailer.
In short, there’s scope to be seriously challenged, to make a significant impact upon OSP, and to be a part of a dynamic growing team, department and business.
The London-based Supply Chain Simulation team will need to collaborate closely with other Simulation and production control algorithm teams in the UK & mainland Europe. Consequently good communication skills are essential, as is attention to detail and ability to explain and verify simulation results.

*We’re passionate about people with:*

* BSc in Computer Science or a numerate degree
* Solid skills in both Java (ideally Java 8+)* *and* *Python (e.g. Pandas)
* Strong analytical and statistical skills
* Experience of working on significant-scale open-ended research-type projects and  delivering high-value from such projects - either in commercial or academic environments.
* An approach that is comfortable with ambiguity and uncertainty in project specification.
* Knowledge of Maven and Gitlab/Gitlab CI
* Experience and interest in algorithmic optimisation techniques
* An open-minded approach to engaging with users of the Simulation outside of the team and within the wider business
*
It would be great if you had some experience of:*

* Supply Chains
* Simulations
* Python numpy, scipy, scikit-learn experience.
* Working with Jupyter notebooks
* A relevant MSc or PhD
*
Also it will be nice if you enjoy:*

* Experimentation - learning fast through trying and failing
* Problem solving through lateral thinking, risk-taking and creativity
* Working collaboratively with others across to address difficult challenges
-Our employee benefits are designed for you, we care about people and we’ve ensured we have a wealth of benefits that focus on your well-being.

* Technically stretching work
* Competitive salary
* Share schemes
* Pension scheme
* Train season ticket loan (interest-free)
* Ocado retail staff discounts.

We also have regular divisional socials, sports clubs not to mention the Ocado Technology Academy for a packed schedule of courses, conferences and events such as discussion sessions, conference briefs and external guest speakers.

* Review
* Recruiter Call
* Codelive
* Pair Programming
* Technical Interview
* Cultural Fit Interview
