YOUR JOB AT OBI

We design the DIY market of the future with software craftsmanship

Who we are

We are a community of experienced software developers with the goal of enabling our customers and employees to successfully realize their dreams of living and gardening. In doing so, we always have an eye for the big picture and all the puzzle pieces that are important – whether frontend, backend or infrastructure. The craftsmanship mentality is essential for us. We always focus on our customers, because we want to create added value and inspiration for them. To this end, we are looking beyond the confines of the DIY market and developing a unique service ecosystem.

How we work

As developers and DevOps engineers with different focuses, we do not work alone. We are always cooperating with colleagues from different departments. In cross-functional teams of DIY experts, business and data specialists, and developers, we create value-added products for our customers. We always meet as equals and are always open to other disciplines. Everyone brings strengths to the table, and this diversity is what sets us apart.

Our core platform "heyOBI"
Our core platform "heyOBI"

Mainly living in the AWS cloud as the core of our product strategy, everything revolves around our customers' direct interaction with our services and products. This is the gold from which we iteratively develop our product strategy and monitor its success: the usage data of our products. As a data-informed company, we consistently mine this data gold and make it available to our own data department for further refinement. In order for us to do this in a stable way across all current and future heyOBI channels, our underlying architecture follows the CQRS pattern. We don't just talk about clean code and best practice architectures; we really implement them. With us, you'll have the chance to gain real experience with live services and products within this platform architecture, helping to develop it further and to constantly improve it.

Planning tools
Planning tools

"I love it when a plan works" – this is the thought we want our customers to have when they use our tools and tips to implement their projects. We work tirelessly on this, because enabling is one of our core values. Every successful project requires one thing above all: good planning, preferably throughout the entire project. In order to help capture the initial ideas of our customers, we provide them and our store staff with planning tools. Just as you as a developer implement a proof of concept for larger projects, our customers can put initial requirements and ideas into a visual context and discuss them with real craftspeople. An example of this is our garden planner. In line with our motto "EVERYTHING IS DOABLE," patio builders, designers, garden experts, product owners and developers have collaborated in interdisciplinary teams to make our combined expertise digitally available to our customers.

Online store goes AWS
Online store goes AWS

In order to be able to flexibly scale the OBI online store as the number of page views, users and orders continues to rise, we have also opted for the infrastructure of Amazon Web Services. The move to the cloud not only offers our developers the opportunity to incorporate their existing skills into the design of the future infrastructure of the OBI online store. Through training, pair programming and direct contact with Amazon experts, they can also build up new and in-depth know-how in the area of AWS and cloud computing and use it profitably for OBI.

What your colleagues say...

Christoph
Christoph
IT Application Developer

"Experience new and exciting challenges every day! We work in a very complex environment. It is especially fascinating to see OBI balance operating an existing system and building a new one at the same time. I can fully live out my creativity in finding solutions for our current challenges. Of course, such a task cannot be mastered alone, so we manage the workload in a large team. Pair and mob programming are very important here, so I'm always getting to know new techniques, ways of working and, last but not least, my colleagues better and better."

Dario
Dario
IT Application Developer

"OBI offers super-exciting topics and a great focus on personal development. I particularly like the fact that I notice the individual impact of my own work, despite the large number of employees and the large and complex range of topics. I don't get lost in the crowd. But that doesn't mean I'm left to my own devices. On the contrary! The really pleasant team atmosphere ensures that a good job becomes a very good job. Thanks to such nice and competent colleagues, I'm quite happy to get up even on Mondays."

Roland

"A good working atmosphere, great colleagues, exciting projects, the latest technologies, room for co-design and a 'we can do it together' culture. In short, working for OBI next is varied and fun – and above all, I create added value for our customers."
