Check out what our CEO Sven Platte has to say about your job at Digistore24:

Software Development at Digistore24

Digistore24 is one of the fastest growing software companies in Europe. Our core platform is an automation solution developed by a small and extremely competent team. It provides a complete infrastructure to over 100.000 entrepreneurs to build a scalable online business with millions of customers.

We have achieved this, because of clear, indisputable software development principles:

  • High-quality German Software - All our software projects have substantial influence on critical business processes and must therefore be extremely reliable and well-programmed.
  • Agile Software Development - We are dedicated to agile software development methods in contrast to waterfall because we see value in testable sprint results instead of waiting forever on the "perfect" software. Hence we create testable versions within a few weeks and evolve them through constant reality checks.
  • Freedom, Responsibility and Trust - We consider software development as highly creative work. As a software developer at Digistore24 we provide you with freedom, trust and all necessary resources to do what you can do best. Develop great software.
  • Understanding the Business perspective - In order to develop the best software, we expect you to have a keen and active interest in the user perspective. Therefore it is mandatory to understand our business.

Listen to our CEO describing the go's and no-go's of what would be a good match to our team:

Our team consists of experienced developers, each of whom takes full responsibility for his or her own project, that is:

  • to write high-quality code and set up clean architectures,
  • to understand their own application technically and business-wise,
  • to think and develop quickly and in agile steps,
  • and thereby develop world-class software that makes a difference.

We believe that beyond the decent prioritization by the product owner, a developer shall have the freedom to develop software the best way possible. We do not believe in excessive specifications and strict regulations. What matters to us is a project in budget and ahead of schedule.

The Project

The main project is Digistore24 - an automation platform that helps small and medium enterprises to have success online. By taking care of their business processes, like accounting, invoicing, product delivery or sales partner management, we support them to hold their ground against the big companies in their field. We build everything to match this mission: from small features to standalone software products.

A big part of our current projects is based on PHP and Symfony 2.8.
