years on the market
We have followed a very clear goal since Shopware was founded in 2000. As an owner-operated family business, we do not just want to make quality software. We want more. With our mission firmly in mind, here at Shopware we work every day to create the industry’s leading software that meets the highest demands in design and technology. The small family business that started the company has since grown into an extended family of eCommerce enthusiasts. But we’ve never lost sight of our founding principles. Above all, Shopware is meant to inspire, animate, and take your business to the next level.
“Our mission is to revolutionise digital trade and create trendsetting eCommerce solutions for our global community.”
People are the most important aspect of Shopware. We celebrate a culture of openness, which can be seen in every facet of our business. In this way, our software reflects an open source philosophy and represents the close exchange we share with our extensive community. Thanks to the valuable feedback we receive from across the globe, every day we continue to improve Shopware to meet the diverse needs of our community. We also pursue an open approach with our customers and colleagues. For us, people are not just a number in a system. Every individual is an essential part of the fabric that makes up Shopware. This makes Shopware personal and accessible.
“eCommerce means People Business. That’s why it’s particularly important for us to meet every person openly and at the same eye-level.”
“Everything around us is evolving: Technology, products, entire markets are constantly changing. But one thing remains the same: our attitude and openness to the outside world.”
