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.

Domain Inventory

The Inventory Domain is the second pillar in idealo’s Product & Technology organization. It provides a well-structured, up-to-date and complete inventory of all the millions of products and hundreds of million offers that users find on idealo. This foundation enables other teams to create exceptional tools, services, and user experiences, ensuring seamless shopping decisions for our users.  Working in close collaboration with our B2B Sales and Account Marketing Team, the Inventory Domain actively acquires and retains relevant e-commerce merchants as idealo partners. It integrates and synchronizes their inventory, ensuring quality and correctness, and brings the entire inventory into one comparable catalog, providing it in a homogeneous, easily accessible structure.

Domain B2C

The B2C User Interaction Domain in idealo’s Product & Technology department combines all customer touchpoints within a single domain, facilitating effective communication and a comprehensive understanding of user needs. It enables seamless collaboration to address user journeys across platforms and solve shared user problems. It promotes continuous product development through enhanced collaboration, clear purpose per Product Area, reduced cognitive load and priority conflicts, as well as separation of consumer touchpoints from complex backend systems. 

Domain Platform

The Domain Platform represents the core of idealo's platform strategy, offering a comprehensive range of self-service APIs, tools, services, knowledge, and support presented as compelling internal products. The purpose of this is to empower our delivery teams, enhance their autonomy, and accelerate the delivery of product features by reducing the need for extensive coordination efforts. Within the Domain Platform, a self-service data platform enables scalable insights generation, employing domain ownership principles to treat data as a valuable multiplier. This platform supports business intelligence, company planning, and expedites product development through analytics and experimentation capabilities. It also facilitates profitable growth through the marketing steering model.

Our principles define the playing field for the best solutions

We're setting ourselves clear and measurable goals using the OKR methods across the entire company. This provides product teams with great freedom and autonomy. We trust in their capabilities and let them do what they can do best: develop solutions and products that create value, solve problems, and unlock new opportunities for the business and our users.

"The challenge of coding is finding solutions and focus."

Women in Tech at idealo

We strongly believe that diverse teams lead to better and sustainable business success, develop more innovative spirit, and positively influence the corporate culture. However, women are highly underrepresented in technical positions - and we want to change that! We want to support more women to move into tech careers, bring them into our Tech & Product Teams as well as promote and make them more visible, thus closing the gender gap in tech.
