Our lean Product & Technology organization with the customer in mind

Our Product & Technology organization focuses on our customers and their needs. It enables us as a tech organization to grow and drive essential projects forward. With a Domains and Product Areas setup, we can work closely with the business counterparts on projects that directly make a difference for our users and partners.

Catalogue eXperience

From the customer's point of view, the Catalogue eXperience domain is probably the most tangible part of the idealo experience: How do I find the right product and the best price from over 350 million offers? The Mobile App Development (MAD), Product Discovery and P&T International product areas are working on this for the idealo shopping offers in France, Austria, Spain, the UK, and Italy. The Catalogue eXperience domain works closely with the Content Department.


No online shopping without a purchase. In the purchase domain, the product areas Shopping and After Sales take care of order processing, customer communication, fulfillment, checkout via lead out or idealo CPO, and payment. In 2020, our product area Local Offers was launched to integrate stationary retailers' offers into the idealo catalog. The Purchase domain, therefore, works closely with the Customer Experience area. It's the make-it-or-break-it moment in our customer journey.

Marketing Services & User Insights

If one never misses a bargain again, idealo users become idealo fans! With the idealo customer account, the wishlist, and the price alert, we have convincing product features that offer our users real added value on mobile, tablet, and desktop. Therefore, Acquisition Loyalty and User Insights product areas work closely with our marketing teams to increase customer activity and loyalty.

Inventory Biz

The Inventory Biz domain with the Merchant Business and Inventory product areas is the backbone of our shopping platform. Because without a merchant platform, there is no inventory and therefore no offers for price comparison. That’s why our Inventory Biz Domain works closely with our B2B Sales & Account Management Team.

Accelerate Teams

The Product Areas Software Architecture, Corporate Platform, and our Agile Coaches team support internal processes and provide the necessary technologies, hardware, and software platforms, thus bringing everyone up to speed as Domain Accelerate teams.

Foundation Platform

The Domain Foundation Platform unites the Product Areas Data Platform, Web Platform and Traffic Engineering and provides the other Domains and Product Areas with important internal services and technologies.

Product & Technology at idealo Travel

In the idealo Reise business unit, a large, integrated technology team takes care of the entire idealo travel and flight search product experience in a total of 14 countries. Direct communication within the tech team and a shared passion for travel make working in this team special!

Strong Domains need expert support

User Experience (UX)

The teams UX Research and UX Design form the User Experience (UX) department at Product & Technology. The teams work as a decentralized unit in the Products Areas in cross-functional teams with Product Owners and developers. With the users in mind, our UX experts work closely with other disciplines to design websites, mobile apps, or internet of things applications to make people's lives easier. The UX research experts source and provide valuable user insights from online surveys and behavioral studies.

IT Security

Information security and IT risk management are the responsibility of our IT Security Team. They support and help our teams at idealo to operate, administer, maintain, and develop systems, services, and applications securely and to collect, process, and store the associated data securely and in compliance with data protection laws. The team is supported by internally trained "Security Ninjas" in the individual teams across the organization.

"Explore, build, test, automate, run, and hopefully never need to go back!"
