Drive the future of e-commerce: Search@otto.de is growing rapidly and needs you! We invest in new technologies, and in the further development of our platform otto.de in order to become the best e-commerce search in Germany.

Ranking products in the most relevant order for our customers is the goal of team Jarvis. State-of-the-art data science models help us to find the most relevant out of over 4 million products for each search term.

You will join a team with passion for innovation and building good products and a lot of fun!
