At commercetools, we are:

Engaged: We didn't become the fastest growing, highest ever valued SaaS software company in digital commerce with nearly 100% year-over-year growth by sitting on the sidelines.

Inspired: We continually explore what's possible. As the founder of the headless commerce concept, the leader in true composable commerce, and the visionaries behind MACH® — our patented tech has radically disrupted the world of enterprise ecommerce software. And we are just getting started!

Valued: Intelligent, resilient, passionate individuals hailing from over 50 countries across the globe, speaking over 43 languages, and collectively embracing diversity, encouraging inclusion, and fostering a culture of care.

The Opportunity:

Join our dynamic product team at the heart of managing the B2C and B2B launchpads as a Senior UX/UI Designer! You'll play a crucial role in enhancing the user experience for our business users, contributing to our mission of delivering intuitive, new features. As a key member of our team, you will have the autonomy to navigate the full spectrum of the design process within our customer domain – from conducting initial discovery research to crafting the final launchpad design.

Your work will directly impact two core assets of the commercetools Frontend, vital to bringing our entire portfolio to life:

  • B2C Store for retail: As our pre-configured, turnkey storefront solution, B2C Store for retail exemplifies our capability to provide robust, user-friendly online shopping experiences. It's engineered to offer a seamless, superior B2C shopping journey, showcasing the effectiveness of our frontend technology.
  • B2B Manufacturing Store: Tailored specifically for B2B e-commerce, our B2B Manufacturing Store presents a specialized, ready-to-integrate starter kit. This kit is fortified with the latest B2B functionalities derived from Composable Commerce, designed to streamline B2B e-commerce operations.

Are you eager to contribute to and learn from an accomplished UX/UI design team within an open, supportive environment? We're excited to see your application!

  • Stay up-to-date with industry trends, best practices, and emerging technologies to continuously improve the quality of our design solutions to build visually appealing and cutting-edge designs that set new standards
