About Jimdo

Join us to help unleash the power of the self-employed and help them thrive! 

Jimdo was founded by three school friends in 2007 in a farmhouse in Northern Germany. Fast forward to today, we’re a growing, profitable business with a team of 250+ people from 50 nationalities based in over 15 countries. Our portfolio serves the unique needs of microbusinesses. In addition to our GDPR-compliant website builder powered by AI, we offer an online store, logo creator, legal text generator, business listings, social media integration, SEO, and more. We recently launched Business Builder. This is a new all-in-one solution – the first of its kind in Germany – that enables people at the start of their self-employment journey to get from idea to success faster and easier. And there’s a lot more coming! We’re constantly developing new products and services that make the lives of micro-business owners easier and help fuel their businesses. If you’re inspired by our mission and like the idea of working for a dynamic remote-first company where you can create impact from day 1, we’d love to meet you!
