Our team in Dortmund started as a specialist unit handling everything that relates to Payment. Here we develop our monitoring systems, collaborating with payment service providers to find innovative ways to create the most user-friendly checkout experience possible. We continuously add new areas of competency, with teams now focused on the tech challenges connected to mission-critical topics including consumer incentives, inventory management, transportation, fulfillment and stock valuation.

Fulfillment Core is all about inventory – and about the promise that we give to our customers. We make sure that our customers not only have a great delivery experience, but that delivery happens exactly when and how we promised. For this we process vast amounts of data, provide extremely reliable and high performing services and are always working to improve our algorithms and predictive models.

As Product Analyst in Fulfillment Core your playground is all the data about where our inventory is and how it moves through our fulfillment network. You will ensure that we are looking at the right data and derive insights from it – insights that will enable you and the team to make data-informed decisions. You will have big impact on how well we can serve our customers and make them trust us even more.

As part of a product team that owns the vision and purpose of how we handle inventory you will work closely with autonomous engineering teams that live up to the standards of Radical Agility. Along with our guiding set of principles - Autonomy, Mastery, Purpose - we entrust you and your team to shape the future of Zalando.
