We create shops
The PrestaShop team reflects the PrestaShop community. We’re very international and proud of our diversity. It’s not uncommon to be in meetings with people who are speaking in multiple languages – going back and forth between their first and second language. Or perhaps helping to translate for a colleague who is working in a new language.
We look for people who are smart, passionate about what they do, and have an open mind. To support our mission, we need people who are open to new cultures, open to new ideas and always open to change.
