In Brief

We’re creating a rapid deployment blueprint of a B2B eCommerce system. Our mission is to be able to deploy a store with a little repetition of work as possible.  Why do the same things over and over again when we start our next development, immediately as good as the last?

Right now we’re working on

  • The ODB – A much better way to process back end telesales orders
  • Page Builder extensions
  • Growing clients businesses through strategic consulting
  • A new frontend framework (maybe PWA)

Top Line…We’ve listened to our developers and are building a development team around what they say builds the best products. Our developers get to:

  • Influence the brief
  • Be involved in the sales process right from the very start
  • Choose which work we do and don’t take on
  • Own their estimates and approach to a project
  • Change the way Rixxo works so we’re always improving.

If you have a passion for eCommerce, want to build fast lightweight sites, contribute to the UI/UX of our core products and build a best in class B2B suite this could be the role for you.
