BigCommerce – Why Work For Us?

BigCommerce believes every brand should have the ability to go as far as their ambition will take them. That belief is made real every day through the hard work, dedication, and passion of our employees.  

Our employees bring the BigCommerce mission to life by empowering a community of businesses to reach their fullest potential. We believe in the same unlimited potential for our employees. At BigCommerce, employees own their personal development through hands-on experience, the opportunity to explore new career paths, and the chance to contribute on projects that are redefining the ecommerce industry. 

We foster a culture that encourages inclusion of every employee, celebrating our individuality and the values that bring us together. If you’re looking for the challenge of an innovative company with the opportunity of a career-enhancing business and people-centered culture, this is the place for you.


These are the core principles upon which BigCommerce was built, guiding what we do and how we do it. Each employee learns them, loves them and lives them. Our merchants benefit from them every time they use our product or get help from our support team.

Customers First

Our company exists to help merchants sell more. We make every decision and measure every outcome based on how well it serves our customers.

Team on a Mission

BigCommerce is made up of amazing individuals, but it’s only through teamwork that we achieve greatness. We’re committed to helping our customers by working together with equal parts humility and ambition.

Think Big

Being the world's leading commerce platform requires unrivaled vision, innovation and execution. We never settle — in everything we do, we challenge our ideas of what’s possible in order to better meet the needs of our customers.

Act with Integrity 

We’re honest, transparent and committed to doing what’s best for our customers and our company. We openly collaborate in pursuit of the truth. We have no tolerance for politics, hidden agendas, or passive-aggressive behavior.

Make a Difference Everyday

We constantly push ourselves to be our best, we focus on solutions, and we arrive every day inspired to make an impact through our talents, passion and hard work.

We have the opportunity to build not only a great business, but a great company, with soul.  Our beliefs and commitment to diversity and inclusion are a central part of achieving that.

Our dedication to diversity and inclusion is grounded in two things: a moral belief in the dignity, value, and potential of every individual, and a practical belief that diverse, inclusive teams will create the best outcomes for our customers, partners, employees, and company. We welcome everyone to be a part of our journey. 

Our Commitments to Diversity & Inclusion 

Equal Opportunity 

Greatness is inherent in all people, no matter their demographic background or personal experiences. We will take action to ensure that every individual has an equal opportunity to grow and achieve their maximum potential.


Our differences make us unique and create the diversity we value. We commit to creating an environment where each of us is treated with respect and dignity and the expression of each individual’s perspective, thoughts and ideas is encouraged.


We foster a culture that encourages the inclusion of every employee by celebrating our individuality and our common values that bring us together. We strive to create an environment in which all employees can bring  their whole, best, authentic selves to work and for everyone to feel a sense of acceptance and encouragement to come as they are.
