The Content Platform plays a key role in the eMAG eco-system as it is responsible for all the content and structure of the eMAG product catalog. This means developing tools and applications that allow for the gathering, storing, structuring and processing of all the data required for a product to be on sale on the eMAG platform (title, description, photo gallery, specifications, filters, unique identifiers etc.)


As part of the development team, you will be responsible for projects like:

  • Building Content Management Systems storing tens of millions of products in multiple languages;
  • Automated translations between multiple languages, using machine translation and translation memory solutions; 
  • Building content review and moderation solutions using machine learning algorithms and computer vision to automate the process; 
  • Integrating complex flows across a multitude of internal and client-facing apps.


To accommodate and sustain such volumes described above we had to integrate the right tool for the right job, making the technological stack pretty complex. We are working to migrate towards a microservice architecture sustained by Docker and orchestrated by Kubernetes. Many microservices are written with PHP, using Symfony 4 as the main framework, but we also have tools written in Python and VueJs. Parallelization is made with queue Systems like RabbitMQ and Gearman and storage is made in databases like MySQL, MongoDB, Redis, and SOLR. Also, we have automation in the testing phase build upon PHPUnit and Codeception.
