Our core teams
Our software engineering teams are full-stack and specialise in multiple areas, such as frontend, backend, or DevOps. They design, code, test, deploy, and maintain everything on our platform, including features like user management, AAA, payment methods, and the checkout process. Whether they are developing the UI, a new microservice, or troubleshooting bugs, there’s plenty of room for creativity and problem-solving.
Data engineering and science
Our data engineering and data science teams work passionately on our platform, collating valuable information to enable ourselves and our users to derive meaningful insights. Mathematical models and data structures help us identify identical articles and rank products, as well as map the user journey for a better user experience. These teams are multi-skilled and master several programming languages to stay on top of our data needs.
The IT infrastructure teams are the backbone of our operation. They support our platform and internal IT landscape, and are responsible for building, operating, and maintaining a state-of-the-art IT infrastructure while also keeping a watchful eye on security threats.
How we work
When facing a task, our colleagues have the liberty and flexibility to find their solutions. An agile approach to working in autonomous teams provides a structured and secure environment for imagination, proactivity and experimentation.
We encourage everyone to unite their strengths for the greater good. Team up in pair programming sessions to spark ideas, think differently and find new perspectives. Open communication is at the core of our values and fosters knowledge-sharing and collaboration within teams.
We work iteratively to drive product innovation. If something doesn’t work out as you intended, that’s ok, you’re one step closer to the expected result. Shake it off and try again.
Our full-stack engineering teams are structured around business domains, which favour a microservice architecture. Your responsibilities don't end once you finish implementing the code. You will be responsible for building and running the services you create.

Host - meet - party - repeat
Our 2022 summer party was held at Leipzig after a three-year hiatus. The atmosphere was abuzz with activity as 450-plus employees from around the world joined in, some of whom met each other in person for the first time. "Having this incredible opportunity to celebrate and experience our spirited culture has strengthened my connection with Unite and Unitees," remarked Rachit Gurung from Nepal, one of the many colleagues invited from 26 countries.
SAP meets agile working - Meetup
Agile working in IT development can be tricky, especially while collaborating with software giants like SAP. In a networking event hosted at Leipzig, Germany, we exchanged tips, tricks and trimmings of agile working and dynamic programming.
Hardware for future
Children need a computer for home-schooling. But that's exactly what many Leipzig schoolchildren lack. The "Hardware for Future" association donates PCs to enable digital participation among children. In November 2020, Unitees refurbished and donated 50 computers to this cause.
We are members of JUG Saxony & IT Cluster

Women working in IT
Our IT HR colleagues, Carolin Fischer and Amruta Pallewar, gave a presentation at the 'diversIT: Women in IT' event by Lancaster University Leipzig on Tech Recruitment connected with women empowerment. They shared insights on the importance of increasing the presence of women in IT, the challenges women face in the industry, and ways to motivate more girls to study computer science and similar fields.
