Erfurt is the historically rich and beautiful capital of Thuringia. Zalando Tech settled a team here on 1st August 2012 when there was a need to provide a fast ramp up for the Erfurt Warehouse. Working here means working right next to one of the biggest and most productive, highly automated warehouse Zalando owns. Thus, feedback loops are extremely short. You directly connect to your colleagues from Warehouse Operations to find the best possible solution for a world-class integrated warehouse management system. Last but not least we are free to use modern technologies and languages like Scala, Java 8, AWS, Docker, Selenium, Maven and whatever is needed to do the job. To keep us on track we chose to use agile methodologies deploying new features at maximum pace with at the same time an outstanding quality of service.
