Ecommerce Platform

Technology at the EO Group is far more than it appears on the surface, e.g. pens and pencils.  At the EO Group we have built our own custom eCommerce platform specialised for the office supplies industry.  There is no commercial eCommerce platform hiding in the background, we have done it ourselves and it’s something we’re proud of.

The platform is Mircosoft focussed, with a few exceptions, and currently supports 25 businesses, which actually means we support and develop 48 web applications.  These are a combination of customer websites and client admin systems and with the success of the business, this number is continuing to grow month on month!  This all runs on highly redundant state-of-the-art infrastructure.  While building our platform we have pushed the boundaries of our tech stack developing our own integrations and extensions, and we are now in the process of giving some of this to the open source community.

In Technology we work with emergent design principles, continually refactoring, updating and enhancing our platform using Agile techniques you’ll see in Lean Start Up, Kanban, Scrum and SAFe.  We move pretty fast running several projects at once and deploying code multiples times a week.  To achieve this in a controlled environment we are fostering a DevOps culture and use automation wherever possible, in development, testing and deployment.

The team are great, based in London, Milan and Riga.  All-in-all it is a place where you’ll be given responsibility and opportunity to grow in a fun and fast-paced environment, where team spirit is high and Friday beers are a must.
