Picnic is the world’s fastest-growing online supermarket. We make grocery shopping simple, fun and affordable for everyone! We launched in 2015 after building the platform in stealth mode with a team of 30 engineers. Then things came quickly together: 2015 challenger award, 2016 best startup award, 2017 most innovative company award. What started as a mobile-first venture is now a true AI-first company where all innovations and operations are powered by our machine learning core engine.
At Picnic it’s all about Think. Dare. Do!

Our project: a is to achieve zero-click fulfillment. Picnic owns and operates the entire supply chain. Food supply chain logistics is highly complex: there are perishable products, different cooling requirements, intricate transportation requirements, complex packaging, varying product quality and a non-trivial quality identification process.

You will design, implement and optimize our autonomous warehouse fulfillment systems consisting of networked mobile robots and ultra-fast conveyor belts for fully machine-operated splitting, receiving, replenishment and dispatching. In doing so, you will crack hard problems like motion planning (path, trajectory and graph search) and vehicle control (kinematic model, path stabilization, trajectory tracking, predictive control, linear parameter varying controller). The best for last: you are free to choose the technology you like and love – no constraints!
