At Sana Commerce we are committed to an inclusive environment and recognize that our diverse workforce is one of our greatest strengths.
Prioritize relationships, not just transactions. At Sana we believe that the core of successful B2B e-commerce lies with building and maintaining great relationships with customers. That is why we focus the development of our product on creating great customer convenience, enabling constant evolution of their e-commerce and providing a reliable shopping experience without compromises.
Sana Commerce has a global product team with members from all over the world. In the past years, our global product team has worked hard to be named as “Strong Performer” in the Forrester Wave of 2020. For our future growth, we are looking for a Product Owner Core, whose primary focus is to measurably increase the value of the core product for our Saas-customers.
Our software is a Saas-product, with biweekly releases. It provides our customers with a B2B E-commerce solution, meaning that our customers sell products through a webstore and maintain and develop online relationships with (prospect) buyers. The core of our value proposition lies in the integration of our software with the ERP of our customers. This integration allows us to use and display real-time data that is relevant to the buyers of our customers, such as sales agreements, up-to-date stock, real-time contextual pricing, etc. Because of this our customers are able to give an online shopping experience that perfectly mirrors and complements the relationship they have with their buyers. Next to the core of our product, we build and provide add-ons which further enrich the experience of the buyer and allow our customers to engage with their buyers in a meaningful way.
As more and more B2B-purchases are done online and the experience people expect in their working life match their personal and private experiences, your task will be to improve our core product to match those expectations. We measure our success by the amount of merchandise that is sold through the webstores of our customers. We believe that the better the shopping experience is, the more merchandise will be sold and the more successful our customers are.
Part of your challenge is to create constant value and improvements to our product, so our customers can improve their e-commerce continuously. The topics you will work on are diverse, but you should think of: stimulating cross and upsell through smart use of known customer data, enabling hyper-personalization of the shopping experience for buyers, improving marketing and sales results by optimizing the webshop capabilities.
To meet this challenge, you will:
- Keep up to date with trends in e-commerce and technology, market and e-commerce developments;
- Work together with your fellow Core-product owners, development teams, and stakeholders to define and execute a vision, strategy, and roadmap for our core product;
- Share this vision and strategy with our employees, partners, and customers via webinars and events globally;
- Be responsible for successful adoption of the product by our customers, and measurably contribute to their success.
The team you will be part of consists of 6 product owners, all based in the Netherlands. Our team is motivated, driven to succeed and diverse in backgrounds, workstyles, and personalities. We work hard, feel responsible for the end-result and each other, and like to keep an informal atmosphere. You will report to the Head of Product.

It all started in 2007, with a pizza and a plan. One evening in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, five people came together over a pizza and set out to create a B2B e-commerce platform unlike any other. And Sana Commerce was born.
Sana Commerce is an e-commerce platform designed to help distributors, manufacturers and wholesalers succeed in an economy built on lasting customer relationships. How? By turning our customers’ SAP or Microsoft Dynamics ERP into the engine that powers their web store, unlocking total customer convenience, reliability without compromise, and effortless scalability.
Sana Commerce is currently powered by more than 500 employees. We all have our own expertise and specialties, from sales and marketing to project management and more. But we’re all driven by the same goal: to make our customers’ e-commerce projects a success.
