Overview

Imagine looking back 5 years from now. How would you feel having laid the technical foundation to contribute to the global success of Germany’s leading open source ecommerce platform? You’d do this by using modern technology that’s already applied onPrem and in the cloud, is scalable, and attracts a growing community of pioneering developers. Sounds good? Then you’re just the person we’re looking for!

No matter where in Europe you are, you’ll be an integral part of the team. We’re looking for a Technical Lead (m/f/d) in Europe to join our core team.

These are your tasks:

  • You’ll be responsible for and actively shape the so-called core of our open source ecommerce solution
  • You’ll be guiding your team in defining, implementing, developing and documenting the core
  • You’ll understand the strategic and functional requirements of the product and independently derive development goals from them
  • You’ll act as a link to other development teams and be an ambassador for the Shopware core
  • You’ll be sorting the backlog and breaking down requirements into concepts, stories and tickets
  • You’ll develop a vision / goals for the core, derive a roadmap and inspire your team
  • You’ll be the go-to for your colleagues, supporting them in their personal and professional development and helping them grow to new lengths

This is what you’ll bring to the table:

  • Field experience as a product owner or an equivalent role with expertise in development
  • You’re tech-savvy when it comes to ecommerce and you’re familiar with common challenges in scaling online shops and possible approaches to doing so
  • You’re not only familiar with PHP, MySQL and ElasticSearch, but you can also develop scalable and high-performing concepts based on these technologies in collaboration with your team
  • You can discuss technical solutions with developers at eye level and drive them forward with purpose
  • You’re able to grasp complex issues and weigh potential solutions appropriately
  • You’re a strong leader and also consider yourself a team player who understands how to use targeted communication to “get the team on board”
  • What makes you stand out are your problem-solving skills as well as your ability to think critically and abstractly
