At Jimdo, our mission is to help small businesses start, grow, and ultimately thrive online. Small businesses face new challenges with very little support or recognition. We know how hard this can be, because we have been in their position. That’s where you can help us—by designing intuitive tools to help small businesses solve complex problems.
With a forward-leaning and self-driven attitude, we continue to find new ways to help our customers get their ideas out into the world. As a team, we run at a steady pace to achieve what we aim for. We learn best by gathering data, trying new things, and sometimes even falling down along the way. It’s the lessons we learn in the process that make us better problem-solvers for small business owners.
If you’re motivated by our mission and excited to roll up your sleeves, try new things, learn from mistakes, and make a difference to small businesses around the world, we would love to work with you.
As a result of a growing engineering organization and the necessity to support more diverse business and engineering needs, Jimdo is expanding our group of engineering teams that focus on engineering effectiveness.
The Platform Team is focused on building and advancing our in-house platform that runs all of Jimdo’s systems. We bundle two decades of experience running high-traffic services in an opinionated platform that enables our engineering teams to build and operate reliable and scalable services. The team continuously advances the platform based on changing business and engineering needs and strives for close collaboration.
