The Wundermart story 

Ever since the birth of Wundermart we have been on a mission. To challenge the status quo in retail and bring back shops to the heart of communities. Our smart tech solution has made it possible to run a small convenience shop profitably in places where this was deemed impossible before. Right now, our shops are popping up in hotel lobbies all over Europe, but this is only the start. We still have a long way to go, and we need your help to get us there.

What do we have to offer.

First and foremost, a down-to-earth, warm, and inspiring environment. A place where you can collaborate with like-minded people and flourish as an individual. Our company motto is ‘never settle’ and that also applies to the way we look at personal performance and growth. We encourage our employees to be open minded and listen to each other. To dare to make mistakes, as long as they bring new insight and help us move forward. To take ownership of their work and always look for opportunities to create better solutions for existing problems. Sounds good? Then read on.
