  • These cloud native solutions involve integrations with front ends and third-party API's like payment and back-office systems
  • You do this within the context of MACH compliant architectures (Microservices, API-first, Headless and Cloud-Native), leveraging SaaS and FaaS platforms like Commercetools, Contentstack, Contentful, Vue Storefront and Frontastic
