Why work at Shopware?

Every day we are driven by the vision that we will achieve something amazing. Shopware is the perfect environment to make that vision a reality:


People are the most important aspect of Shopware, regardless of where you work from. Whether you work from our campus, home, hybrid, or abroad, we are flexible, and so are you. Shopware also offers you flexible working hours as part of a flex-time arrangement and is committed to helping you adapt your working life to your situation in the best possible way.


Shopware is a family-friendly company. We want to provide security for your family planning and support you in emergencies.


Your work-life balance is essential to us! You should be burning for Shopware, not burning out. If you have to work overtime, it can be compensated in a short time frame. If your battery is running low, you owe it to yourself to take a holiday. Shopware offers you an above-average number of holiday days.


No matter where you work, you are an integral part of our crew! We live a strong team spirit. True to our values of being open, authentic, and visionary, we treat each other as equals, are transparent in our communication, and take every idea seriously - no matter how crazy. Together we build the exceptional!

Personal growth

Shopware supports lifelong learning. You will always have the possibility of visiting a training or course to expand your horizon further. Our employees should be comfortable communicating with the world. That is why we support you in improving your language skills. In addition to intercollegiate exchange and internal internships, we rely on qualified managers who regularly participate in coaching sessions.


Your health is close to our hearts. That's why we contribute to your well-being and offer various ways to focus on your health. For example, you can train on-site after work with our trainers or use our online training videos.


We are aware of our responsibility in terms of sustainability. Starting with our climate-neutral buildings, all our employees have access to our charging stations for e-cars, free of cost. You can also borrow one of our e-bikes for your way to our campus.


When we extend our trust to a team member, we mean it for the long haul. After your initial six months, you'll receive a permanent contract and security in your work life. We want you to feel comfortable with us in the long term and to build your future on our collaboration. That's why we start with a detailed onboarding process, during which your buddy will be there to support you. We also offer you attractive social benefits.


Work hard, play hard! With numerous gaming consoles and an outdoor area for playing volleyball and table football, you have plenty of opportunities for taking a mental break. With company-wide or team and department events, it never gets boring. Whether canoeing, cycling tours, trampoline jumping, or alpaca tours - we have something for everyone.
