This is us in a nutshell:
- We are singularly focused on providing all the tools and building blocks our customers need to deliver outstanding online shopping experiences and innovation across all digital touchpoints.
- In 2013 we introduced a modular, API-first cloud-native commerce platform, pioneering the headless commerce space and enabling us to build the foundation to change our whole industry for the better and re-invent ecommerce.
- Our international expansion has reached Europe, the US and Asia Pacific. In September 2021, we announced our $140m series C funding round led by global tech investor Accel, alongside existing investors Insight Partners and REWE Group, which has accelerated our global growth and elevated us to unicorn status. We are now valued at $1.9bn, named a Leader in the 2021 Gartner® Magic Quadrant™ for Digital Commerce for the second year in a row.

Quality is very important to us, we test software components regarding usability, functionality, and performance, relying on libraries like Jest, Cypress and react-testing-library.

What you need to succeed:
We are searching for individuals who are curious about technology, diligent, kind and eager to learn and grow. Trust is at the core of our values and we trust you to do well together with us.
Searching for a Front End Developer we’d expect you to strive for clean, functional, testable code and have high standards for quality assurance, such as code review, visual regression testing and End-to-End tests.
We believe in radical candor and open, honest and direct feedback. Great ideas can come from anybody and we love strong opinions loosely held. You should be comfortable to work with video calls and excel in sharing ideas through written communication as you will be working in a remote first team.
