E-Commerce Consultant

I could not have started my apprenticeship as a business administration assistant in any better company. In such a young company there is not only common teamwork and fun at work, but also great friendships. I am very happy to be part of this company even after my apprenticeship, because especially in the field of e-commerce you will always find new challenges.

    Senior Customer Service Agent

    Joining the Rakuten family in Bamberg was one of the best decisions regarding my professional development. Every day, varied challenges await me in the areas of retail customer care and dealer communication. Even for newcomers like me Rakuten offers a career platform and career opportunities. Above all, interdepartmental cooperation is very inspiring and promotes this together. Since Rakuten is a young company, open communication to senior management is always on the agenda. Firm festivals or spontaneous events also strengthen the cohesion of the teams.
