Building a Platform Is Complex

Zalando transformed from an e-commerce company into a multi-service platform for fashion. From logistics, to big brands, to fashion bloggers - we’re building the engine that connects all people and parts of the fashion ecosystem.

Lead the Transformation

Zalando's future is not designed yet. This is why we look for people who are innovative enough to break through the status quo, brave enough to fail and smart enough to win. Working for us, you will be provided with the trust to make decisions, the freedom to achieve mastery, and the opportunity to grow.

Make Your Mark

Zalando has disrupted an entire industry. Our way of reimagining fashion provides you with the chance to make an impact as an individual, and build your own brand. Start your very own journey to contribute to Zalando’s success story and make your mark.

Love Diversity

Zalando is more than an international company with interesting opportunities. Zalando unites diverse people, capabilities and ideas. Consolidating our ideas and effort scales our impact as an innovator in both tech and fashion.

People Stories

Thomas Schupp Portrait

""A few years ago, despite still being keen on code and technology I left the individual contributor path to make more of an impact. Increasing impact is not a sufficient objective to move away from coding to a leadership role, what really matters to me are people and agile flexible environments. Realizing this was my tipping point to finally let go of coding. At least during working hours. I also wanted to join a company combining the best of both worlds: corporate structures and startup culture, still thinking of development and product as two collaborating actors — I now see them as two sides of the same coin. Zalando was that company for me and now I am able to apply Zalando’s Design Thinking Methodologies not only to customer facing applications, but also to a framework that targets frontend developers to build a fashion platform.""

"I joined Zalando SE after quitting my job at a major tech company in Silicon Valley. Now I can combine my passion for Fashion and Tech and work in Germany's Berlin Valley. I currently lead an ambitious operations team at the Zalando Partner Program where we connect leading fashion brands to the Zalando platform while shaping the online fashion marketplace of the future. We are always looking for great people to join us!"

Team Lead Integration

"There is nothing better than finding the balance to enjoy being a dev and a mum. My idol Michael Jordan says 'JUST DO IT' - so I thought doing something in the 'IT' industry. Talking about the feeling of Zalando - it's as crazy as me at times, in the best possible way. I mean, I quit my job when I was pregnant to take on the challenge of coming to the foreign land of Germany. Zalando attracts and connects intelligent people, grows their curiosity, encourages sparkling ideas and pushes them to go as far as they can go. For me, Zalando is a wonderland of freedom."

"After reading through the company profile and work culture, I could not think of a reason not to work for Zalando SE. Not only is it one of Europe’s fastest growing online fashion retailers, the possibility to work at the tech headquarters in Berlin, one of the beautiful cities of Europe, was the icing on the cake. I am working as a NetSuite Developer for the zLabels GmbH Technology team. As an international team with colleagues from more than 11 countries we build feasible solutions to make the business process easy and constantly improve."
