About Ucommerce

Ucommerce is a small-sized software company with a considerable impact. We have been around for ten years. We work globally through more than 200 partners, and we have more than 3000 implementations of our ecommerce platform globally. We deliver ecommerce capabilities to brands like Southampton FC, Triumph Motorcycles, Lakrids by Bülow, Emirates, Rosendahl Design group, I Amsterdam, and many more.

 

We want Ucommerce to be a fantastic place to work, which is why our culture is extremely important to us. To skip the usual HR yada yada, these are the essential cultural cornerstones:

  • Freedom with responsibility: We are firm believers of an extremely high degree of freedom. We are all grown-ups, and we are perfectly capable of deciding when we need to go to the dentist, when we need to pick up kids early, or when we need to work from home. The only rule is: Plan with your team.
  • Work-life balance is a real thing here: We work hard, but we also need to have a balance in life. You get points for delivering value - not for staying in the office around the clock. Go home, have a life, and come back and kick ass tomorrow.
  • Respect for everybody: Everybody does their best - everybody brings value to the team. That is why they are here. It does not matter if you are an intern or CEO; your voice will be heard. And btw, we have a strict no-asshole policy.

 

Please feel free to reach out to CEO Hannu Vangsgaard via Linkedin PM or [email protected] if you have any questions regarding the position.

 

Process

We only accept applications through Linkedin.

We will start looking at candidates mid-August, so please don’t expect an answer earlier than that.
