We’re shaping the future of e-commerce by building a tech-driven platform that enables Direct-to-Consumer and wholesale e-commerce brands to grow and accelerate globally. We are growing exponentially, and our application is battle- and stress-tested by some of the strongest brands in the business. With millions of orders processed last year, and an ability to handle thousands of API calls every second, we aim to go even bigger – with zero limits ahead. We use Redis, Elasticsearch and a lot of caching to produce API endpoints that are performant and hard to kill.
We have multiple teams working on different products. You may have a strong preference for some technologies or products, so based on the interview and your feedback you will have an opportunity to join a team that is right for you. This will be your first home. After a few months, you may want to rotate into a different team.
All teams work within the boundaries of the Scrum framework. If you like to do pair programming or apply other techniques, you are welcome to do so. We try to avoid having long meetings (or having a lot of them) and we put a lot of focus on fast and efficient communication inside the team (Slack, Google Meet, face-to-face).
