Software Engineer (Java) - Product Page (m|f|x)


The team: Product Page

In addition to price comparison, in which customers are referred to partner shops, idealo also offers the possibility to purchase items from selected partners directly on our platform.
This is called “Direktkauf”. As part of this journey, users are shown a product page, just as they would be in the shop, where they can discover the product and decide to enter the checkout. To guide users through these discovery and decision phases, the agile product page team builds and optimizes a set of modules across product categories and customer segments.
