The Stack

Workarea is built with the best-in-class tech stack for digital commerce.

Ruby on Rails
Ruby on Rails is a popular framework for building web applications. Some of the biggest sites, like Twitter, Github, and Airbnb leverage Rails. Optimized for developer happiness, it’s fast - for both customers and developers.

MongoDB accelerates innovation with a data storage model that easily accommodates changes in your commerce experiences. Workarea developers can quickly handle any curveballs in a retailer’s data without sacrificing any efficiency.

Elasticsearch is the backbone of Workarea, powering so much more than the textual search experience for shoppers. This high-performance search engine drives merchandising, categories, and content, as well as the most delightful admin experience you will ever use.

Redis is a lightning fast in-memory data store. Workarea uses Redis to store its cache, asynchronous jobs, and recommendations data. This enables Workarea to deliver some of the fastest sites on the Internet.

Complete API

The Workarea Commerce APIs allow you build applications and services that can make use of your data and our functionality. Of course, you’ll have programmatic access to all data stored within Workarea, but all storefront functionality is available through our robust API. Our customers are deploying headless commerce applications and creating new experiences with the most complete API on the market.


Workarea teams are doing interesting things and are excited to talk about why and how they’re doing it. We have a number of venues for our retailer and developer communities to share war stories, get advice, teach, and learn from each other.
