UK online grocer to build technical centre in Krakow


Ocado, a leading UK online grocery retailer, has selected Krakow as the location for its IT base, CEO Tim Steiner told The Grocer magazine. Mr. Steiner explained that in view of a shortage of computer science graduates in the United Kingdom, the company has been forced to look abroad for a place to build a technical centre, and Poland “produces 10 times the number of relevant graduates”.

Ocado already employs some staff in Poland, the magazine noted.

The UK company needs a strong IT team as it develops much of the software powering its business in-house.
