Tech & Development

Our mission is to digitalize the classic shopping stroll by creating an inspiring and personalized shopping experience on the smartphone. However, as we do not see ourselves as purely a fashion company but also as a tech company, technology and data are always at the heart of ABOUT YOU strategy and culture and are the biggest drivers of our strong success and growth.
Our proprietary tech stack is not only the foundation of our own shops, but is also offered in the ABOUT YOU Commerce Suite (AYCS), a flexible all-in-one multi-tenant SaaS solution for online retailers and brands. With more than 60 external shops already live, we are rapidly scaling to build one of the biggest e-commerce infrastructure solutions for fashion and lifestyle retailers and brands in Europe, powering not only our own retail business but also that of our many clients. To achieve our goal of becoming the best in this field within Europe we are always looking for new talent to join one of our three divisions, led by our CTO Sebastian Betz.

Our Divisions

Cloud Core
Our Core teams are responsible for developing the core functionalities of our shop infrastructure, building a standardized e-commerce SaaS platform and serving both our own ABOUT YOU shops as well as our B2B ABOUT YOU Commerce Suite tenants. The division is responsible for the development of shop logistics, order processing, checkout and payment for end users, as well as ensuring that we have a reliable infrastructure and data security for our online shop. By setting us up with a perfectly running network and optimally functioning tools, the Core teams create the base on which our developers can work in the best and most efficient way.
Cloud Agency
Our internal Cloud Agency builds on the core e-commerce infrastructure developed by our Core teams to deliver our SaaS solution to our tenants, mainly fashion and lifestyle brands and retailers. Our tenants leverage our platform to provide their customers with the best service and the most personalised customer experience across all platforms and channels. We combine a variety of functions - from Tech & Product (frontend and backend) to project management, solution architecture and customer success management - to ensure that our tenants can grow quickly and efficiently in the online market.

ABOUT YOU Retail Tech
ABOUT YOU Retail Tech Our ABOUT YOU Retail Tech team adopts our core technology for our own ABOUT YOU shops to know what our customers want and what inspires them at every moment in their journey. We analyse customer behaviour and assess crucial metrics to make our customer’s experience of our online shop even more personalised and customer-centric. We are always striving to make the ABOUT YOU experience new and exciting by consistently improving our app and our mobile and desktop websites. By leveraging machine learning, we can provide personalised and intelligent recommendations, product sorting as well as specific mail and push notifications based on the customer’s behaviour.

Remote Work

Starting in September 2021, we are offering developers, lead developers and QA engineers the opportunity to work remotely from anywhere in the EU. However, to keep up the ABOUT YOU culture and to allow everyone to get to know each other in person in order to benefit from each other’s skills and knowledge, we aim to host tech gatherings in Hamburg several times a year. For all other functions we aim to adopt a hybrid working model moving forward, with office days from Tuesdays to Thursdays and the possibility to work remotely on Mondays and Fridays.

Tech at heart

Contrary to many other e-commerce and tech companies in Europe, one of ABOUT YOU’s founders is a Techie, ensuring that Tech remains at the heart of the ABOUT YOU strategy.

MOVE

Our MOVE programme allows developers to move between teams, meaning they can work on challenges that they find the most interesting. While this benefits our talented developers as it promotes learning and development, it also keeps the ABOUT YOU Tech organization fast, agile and flexible in order to handle our high growth.
