Let us tell you how we started it all

2006

Dirk Hörig and Denis Werner, friends and fellow entrepreneurs, turned their vision to disrupt the commerce software into reality. commercetools’ first brick was laid in Munich and the capital of Bavaria still remains our headquarter to this day. Dirk and Denis are still doing their part in building commercetools as CEO and COO.

2011

The next destination for commercetools’ conquest was the Silicon Valley of Europe – Berlin – which has grown to be the biggest commercetools office to date. Our tech hub in Berlin fuelled the birth of what is known to be the first legitimately headless commerce solution with an API-first architecture. Truly embracing the diversity of Berlin, from a few techies of our earlier days, we are now nearly 100 members coming from all corners of the world.

Seeing the potential in our platform, REWE digital saw themselves as more than just a customer of commercetools. In 2014, REWE digital officially jumped on board as our main investor.

2015

US is calling! commercetools’ American dream was launched with an office in Durham, North Carolina. This marked an important milestone in our global expansion plan as well as the beginning of nearly 40 (and counting) commercetoolers on the other side of the globe.
