The opportunity

The Information Experience teams deliver world class experiences for customer accounts (login, registration, MyAccount), customization (search, brand, styles, trends, etc) & developers (e.g. Tooling, Product Hub, etc). Its mission is to build a new user registration, onboarding, account and self-help experience which significantly boosts the number of identified user sessions while driving down customer care costs (Customer Care, User Account stakeholders, Zalando customers).

As Product Manager for our Information Experience team you will help define the vision and roadmap for Zalando’s user experience on the Fashion Store by enabling UX/UI teams to build their own experiments to meet specific opportunities as well as be part of global design and optimisation initiatives involving multiple teams across Europe.
