The core of our solution portfolio is the "empiriecom commerce suite" (shop-frontend, content management, product search, order management, apps) with which online retailers can operate modern e-commerce within a cloud environment and integrate any third-party systems using flexible APIs. Thanks to the modular architecture approach, the products of the commerce suite can be used individually or in combination.

With more than 1.6 billion € order turnover per year, the empiriecom commerce suite is one of the largest e-commerce platforms in the DACH region.

What makes working at empiriecom special for you?

In addition, empiriecom offers me the freedom to get involved outside of my role and to help shape it. Working with my colleagues is great fun, I always find an open ear and I can always count on them.”
