Zalando’s IT-Compliance unit guarantees the knowledge and adherence of all related regulatory specifications and requirements posed to the company. For this purpose, appropriate processes are established and awareness regarding rule-conformity throughout the company is raised. In addition, the unit is accountable for controls and documentation of IT-Compliance with relevant regulations to internal and external stakeholders. A close-coupled collaboration with a dedicated engineering team assures the effective implementation of technical IT-Compliance solutions.

  • … you show progress by making your work transparent with respective Key Performance Indicators (KPIs).

In addition, you create a common understanding of Zalando’s IT-Compliance/Audit requirements within the company and convey their meaning, importance and necessity to all employees. You closely work together with IT-Compliance Managers and IT-Compliance Engineers in order to come closer to our vision of a meta-auditable system.
