Product Manager Checkout (m/f)

ABOUT the Job

Our Checkout Backend team is responsible for the complete order lifecycle, from customers first placing items into their baskets to handling the refund of a returned item weeks later. Between these two points the team also interacts with a multitude of internal and external players, spanning from an in-house CRM team to the external B2B order broker and multiple payment providers in a variety of countries. The applications the Checkout team maintains span from high traffic & fault tolerance api hubs to security-conscious and reliable backend processing engines. Do you enjoy the challenge of working in a multi-product team with an emphasis on backend processing? Are you interested in extending your experience beyond the classic web applications? Then you are the perfect addition to our Checkout team, which is currently searching for a Product Manager (m/f) to guide the team in his/her role as a circle manager.
