Solutions Engineer

Apply for this job
Medusa is a commerce platform with a built-in framework for customization. We built Medusa after learning that all commerce companies always need some level of customization – even if they try to avoid it. Existing solutions force you to do hacky workarounds.
We are offering a better way.
Medusa has become the most popular open-source commerce project in under three years. Ahead of us is an enormous opportunity to build the platform that will power all digital commerce applications – existing and new. We are looking for great minds prepared to go the distance to build a once-in-a-generation company.

About Medusa

Medusa had its first commit in 2020, raised the first round of capital in 2021, and became the largest open-source commerce project on GitHub in 2022. Today, Medusa counts a 10k developer community, has crossed +1M npm downloads, and has raised $9M in funding. Yet, we are only just getting started.
For the past few years, the team has been fully focused on developing an open-source platform with modules for core commerce logic such as carts, customers, products, and order management. In combination with our framework for customization, we allow commerce companies of all sizes to build scalable and robust applications with custom business logic living natively in their stack.
Our tools have been adopted by thousands of developers at companies ranging from the world's largest enterprises to fast-growing startups across +40 countries.
The next big product leap is a cloud platform, bringing an unprecedented developer experience and native customization capabilities to commerce companies on hosted infrastructure.

Help our users succeed

All commerce companies need some level of customization. Our modular architecture and framework provide the foundation to support this. We allow you to create new data models, business logic, API endpoints, subscribers, and more. The combination of powerful commerce modules and a framework for customization allows companies to build applications that realize their full potential—and they can build them faster than with any other platform.
