About Medusa

Medusa is a commerce platform with a built-in framework for customization. We built Medusa after learning that all commerce companies always need some level of customization – even if they try to avoid it. Existing solutions force you to do hacky workarounds.

We are offering a better way.

Medusa has become the most popular open-source commerce project in under three years. Ahead of us is an enormous opportunity to build the platform that will power all digital commerce applications – existing and new. We are looking for great minds prepared to go the distance to build a once-in-a-generation company.

Building Medusa Cloud

All commerce companies need some level of customization. Our open-source product and modular architecture provide the foundation to support this. We have proven this. However, companies using Medusa currently need to manage their own infrastructure. This is a burden and requires dedicated resources to build and maintain.

We want to develop a cloud platform that sits on top of our open-source product, providing them with managed scalable infrastructure without compromising their customization capabilities. Working directly with our founding team, you will help shape how we structure some of the core parts of this new product domain and own implementation of these parts end-to-end.

Examples of what you could work on

  • A platform application with business logic related to accounts, projects, and environments
  • A workflow engine to orchestrate actions spanning multiple - possibly distributed - services
  • A bundler to create highly optimized bundles for serverless environments
  • A search engine to read, filter, and sort data living in distributed data stores
  • A product module that includes all business logic related to product information
