As part of our ongoing efforts to promote diversity and inclusion, and increase the number of women in tech, Zalando is launching the GroWIT (Growing Women in Tech) initiative for interns and working students that helps women launch a career in tech. GroWIT offers a series of software engineering internships specifically to people who identify as women and look to jump-start their career in tech. For women at the beginning of their career, this initiative offers a great opportunity to grow within a strong tech team, forge meaningful professional connections, and gather invaluable first experiences in tech within an environment that supports learning and growth. 

As a Working Student you will ensure that our fulfillment options can be steered in an optimal way. The Network Tooling team provides transparency solutions for how we can and want to deliver parcels and makes it easily manageable. With a constantly increasing number of participants in the fulfillment network also the need for smarter and more automated managing solutions increases and you will be in the center of that.


At Zalando, our vision is to be inclusive by design. And this vision starts with our hiring - we do not discriminate on the basis of gender identity, sexual orientation, personal expression, ethnicity, religious belief, or disability status. You are welcome to leave out your picture, age, or marital status from your application. We only assess candidates on their qualifications and merit. We want to provide you with a great candidate experience. Feel free to inform us of any accommodations you may need, so we can best support you throughout the hiring process.
