Join our team

Cut the Crap! We are just a bunch of NERDS, transforming the world of (e)commerce with our truly unique Unified Commerce Platform (EVA), a creation of an ultra-modern, highly adaptive and Technology Agnostic eco-system.

Our purpose is to help Global operation brands and retailers to become adaptive to change.

About us

EVA is the engine that powers digital retail solutions, a secured cloud -based platform that is set up to improve consumer experience. We facilitate the use of a fully flexible infrastructure, enable digital transformation and help our users to deliver true unified experience and functionality to their customers faster and smarter. We work for several companies such as Rituals, Intersport, Ajax, GrandVision and Scotch & Soda.

At New Black we do things a little bit different. We believe that work is about more than getting paid for your effort. It’s such a big part of your life that we ask from you that it’s important to keep in mind that your life isn’t over when you are working. Since we believe that being your own boss can help you feel more comfortable, we decided to implement Holacracy in our company. Holacracy offers an alternative way to structure an organization.

Welcome to equal land

WHAT equal land? YES, equal land. We believe that every person in our company is equal. Of course, there are differences in skills but in the end we all have our own qualities. So, we all call ourselves Boss (not for real) but in general we are all bosses from our own work. We don't have to report to a manager or something else. We believe that this crap is a waste of time, so we decided to cut the crap. We talk with each other and we align with each other, but we don't report in one direction. This helps us to be faster and more adaptive to change.

NEW BLACK is very ambitious, we are profitable and fully bootstrapped (no investors, no debts) and this is incredibly important in providing us the freedom to keep on shaping our company the way we together see fit.

NEW BLACK fully owns its intellectual property, far from the norm in our industry or at most other Unified Commerce Platform companies. This allows us to make our own decisions about our products, provides us with the freedom to create the best product with the latest technologies.

NEW BLACK has entered in selective strategic partnerships with best-in-class global brands like Apple, Adyen, Deloitte, Scandit and a few others, to create an ecosystem for global expansion and sustainable success. We are changing the future of retail all over the world, and we invite you to be part of it.

So please don’t apply because we provide all our employees with a nice Tesla, don’t apply because we pay well, don’t apply because you can fully determine your own hours, working location and off time, don’t apply because you can fully be your own boss, don’t apply because you can use the New Black boat during the summer, don’t apply because we have a chef preparing your lunch every day. Only apply if you want to join us to become a rebel with a cause to change the future of retail!
