Who we are

Currently, we are eight people working as a cross-functional team on a daily basis:

  • Daniel, Kevin and Oliver are our Full-Stack Developer and implement new features daily, and fix bugs every now and then.

The tasks in the team

  • We are constantly working to improve our customers' experience from the moment they enter our online shop to explore our products and assortment, from search to categories to product pages.

  • We map complex product information, take care of the implementation of EU and worldwide directives and laws, and keep pace with international requirements.

  • We continuously question and (A/B) test the UI, and reduce hurdles for our customers - not by guessing, but through data-driven decision-making.

  • We work with agile methods and processes that allow us to constantly improve ourselves and our collaboration. Agile coaches show us new perspectives and help us with new impulses.

  • Search can be done better by others, so we work closely with external partners and internal departments.

  • Fluent English

  • We build and transpile everything our frontend needs using Webpack and Babel.

  • With Docker and Openshift, we are on our way to a container future and make the port of Hamburg look weak.

  • MySQL & Memcached provide our customers with reliable and fast data.
