  • Eagerness to optimize data streaming and processing systems for the best possible performance to have a positive impact on customers and partners.
  • Passion for working in an agile, cross-functional team, iterating quickly during the product development cycle.
  • Ability to communicate and collaborate effectively with business stakeholders, product managers, and engineering peers.

IT ALL STARTED WITH A SHOE... 👠...in a shared apartment/office/warehouse on Berlin’s trendy Torstrasse. Well, a few pairs of shoes actually. Since then we’ve sold a lot more shoes and have grown to be Europe’s largest online fashion retailer or you may call us Europe's most fashionable tech department. Today, we offer fashion-lovers in 15 different countries our wide range of products – from High Street favourites to designer brands, sportswear and kidswear for him and her. A lot has changed since then, but our core values have always remained the same – combining great fashion with the latest technology and exceptional customer service. A PROUD COMMUNITY Over the years, we have built a strong community. We love to share our passions, insights and expertise for technologies and topics we love through 100+ self-organised guilds, internal tech talks, training initiatives, demos, local meet-up events, conferences and more. In addition to encouraging an engaged community, we support you in building your reputation as tech leader - not only among your peers at Zalando but industry-wide. We know that every new technology and methodology we implement involves a learning curve, so our teams are dedicated to help everyone get up to speed on using the tools they need to work successfully.
