Java Software Engineer
Questers is a UK-based company with Tech Parks across South-East Europe.
The first one was launched in 2007 in Sofia and since then we've opened a further three Tech Parks in Plovdiv, Belgrade and Cluj-Napoca. We have employed over 650 developers, testers and technical support specialists for over 50 clients from Europe, UK and the US. The variety and calibre of clients combined with our exceptional work environment allows us to attract and retain the best people for our clients from the local labour market in a wide range of technologies.
Our resourcing platform allows technology businesses or IT departments to quickly attract, onboard, and retain full-time resources. Unlike traditional outsourcing, our direct management approach means we take care of all HR, administration, infrastructure, security, social and employment aspects, allowing our clients and their team to focus on what's important – delivery, while we continue to support employee engagement and performance. As people-oriented company Questers recognize that high productivity can only be achieved by motivating, developing and empowering talented people. In 2014 the company was certified to work with "Investors in People" and awarded "Top ICT Employer".

We are really excited to introduce our partner we work with on this campaign to build the team in Sofia within our operation:

Ocado Technology is the division responsible for building the software that powers the world’s largest online only grocery retailer, Ocado.
Ocado started shipping orders in 2002 and over the past 13 years has been engaged in a continual process of rapid innovation. Its solution is as unique as its business model and the fact that it owns almost every line of source code in this solution means it can evolve, optimise and exploit it. Ocado fuses two businesses: retail and technology. The retail business, Ocado helps drive the innovation and the customer requirements. The technology business, Ocado Technology, builds the solutions which are deployed back into the retail business. This allows the company to do what neither a pure retailer nor a pure technology company can do: create a virtuous circle of innovative dogfooding.
