About the role

OK, so let's start with a few words about Vue Storefront.

Vue Storefront is a Frontend Platform for Headless Commerce, which was built with an open-source mindset and the trust of a global community. It is the result of our effort to provide developers with modern and forward-thinking technical solutions crafted to meet common eCommerce industry challenges.

Vue Storefront started in 2017 as a bottom-down initiative from Divante agency developers who were looking for ways to make things faster, easier, and more effective. The available solutions didn’t meet their expectations so they created their own.

Today, Vue Storefront is not only the biggest and the fastest growing Frontend for eCommerce, it’s a whole ecosystem of frontend services that can work together or independently. Each of the services addresses a key component of your development cycle while building eCommerce storefronts – from Build to Launch.
