We are firm believers in our core values: Purpose, Trust, and Lifelong Learning. More than ever we need passionate talents who believe in these values and in a better future of e-commerce. Awaiting you is an employer that cares and an accomplished international team full of like-minded and friendly individuals operating from across the globe.

About your new role:

  • Help us innovate and build the most flexible and extensible commerce API
  • Integrate our SaaS with leading cloud providers and help drive industry standards, such as the CNCFs CloudEvents, forward
  • Work on authentication and single-sign-on solutions
  • Analyze product requirements and discuss technical approaches
  • Test software components regarding usability, functionality, and performance and work closely with Product Management
