Every employee writes Zalando's success story every day. We are proud of our strong, international team that has quickly put promising ideas into action and has always broken new ground to find the best solution together.
Meet some of our people that play Zalando.
"1993 I came to Germany fleeing from the war in Bosnia-Herzegovina. 8 years of the 24 years that I'm in Germany now I live in Berlin. I've done a lot of different jobs throughout my career but no job compares to my current one. I'm working in Zalando's Content Creation for two years now and it feels like a second home. I'm very thankful for all the new people I constantly get to meet and am excited to be surrounded by so much creativity every day. I plan to stay here :)" Mehmed Suko, Model Booker.
"I love how Zalando combines structure and chaos so successfully. It consistently amazes me, how this loose aggregation of people within the light structure of Radical Agility drives the business forward by delivering across a huge spectrum of technology, sometimes in delightfully unexpected ways. Everywhere I look, people are proud of what they are building and how they are building it, as they lay the foundation to disrupt the European fashion industry." Eric Bowman, VP Engineering.
"There is nothing better than finding the balance to enjoy being a dev and a mum. My idol Michael Jordan says 'JUST DO IT' - so I thought doing something in the 'IT' industry. Talking about the feeling of Zalando - it's as crazy as me at times, in the best possible way. I mean, I quit my job when I was pregnant to take on the challenge of coming to the foreign land of Germany. Zalando attracts and connects intelligent people, grows their curiosity, encourages sparkling ideas and pushes them to go as far as they can go. For me, Zalando is a wonderland of freedom." Qian Jiang, Software Engineer.
"I joined Zalando SE after quitting my job at a major tech company in Silicon Valley. Now I can combine my passion for Fashion and Tech and work in Germany's Berlin Valley. I currently lead an ambitious operations team at the Zalando Partner Program where we connect leading fashion brands to the Zalando platform while shaping the online fashion marketplace of the future. We are always looking for great people to join us!" Hanna Wolter, Team Lead Integration.
We reimagine fashion – and want to ask the right questions when things get more complex. For us, our purpose is a kind of guide with which we aim to achieve a common goal. Our purpose also gives us – as well as all the newly emerging business areas and collaborations that we are entering into as a company – a direction. In this way, we make every decision with complete clarity. Our purpose does not provide us with answers. However, it does help us to ask the right questions.
WE ARE DOERS.
Every day that we come to work, we experiment, create, assemble, improve – and rethink.
WE ARE INVENTORS.
From the very first moment, we had the crazy idea that the fashion ecosystem should benefit everyone – whether you celebrate your personal style every day, you simply want something to wear, or you earn money with your outfits.
WE ARE PEOPLE.
No matter which business unit we belong to, every one of us wants to make the world of fashion more intelligent, friendlier and more open. For the doers and the rebels, brands and trendsetters. For everyone who is fed up with playing by the fashion rules of yesterday. In all this, we never lose sight of the big picture. The clothing, the clichés and the supply chain. In order to create a system that benefits everyone.
GOOD FOR ALL?
Our purpose challenges us to find solutions that produce the best results for people. Whether for customers, producers, trendsetters or brands, every single one plays an important role – directly or indirectly – in Zalando’s growing sphere of influence.
In 2015, we developed our Corporate Responsibility (CR) Strategy, which we call do.STRATEGY, and we have started to implement it. The name of the strategy describes our philosophy: we approach issues very pragmatically. This is exactly how we are tackling the issue of sustainability. Based on the requirements of our employees and customers, we have defined five focus areas for our strategy: do.GROW (our employees), do.KNOW (our supply chain), do.PROTECT (our environment), do.CONNECT (our community), do.RESPECT (our data protection).
Ich arbeite in Vollzeit bei Zalando (mehr als ein Jahr)
Tolle Kollegen, ein sehr internationales und freundliches Team. Man hat hier die Möglichkeit viel zu lernen und an spannenden Projekten zu arbeiten. Die Firma bietet einen viele Möglichkeiten sich weiter zu qualifizieren. Flexible Arbeitszeiten. Die eigene Leistung wird nicht nur vom Chef beurteilt, sondern auch von anderen Mitarbeitern.
Leider keine Zeiterfassung, Überstunden werden nicht bezahlt. Also fleißig abbauen und selber so organisieren, dass man die Arbeit rechtzeitig schafft.
Rat an das Management
Ihr macht es schon super, aber Zonar nimmt wirklich sehr viel Zeit in Anspruch. Es sind sehr viele Dimensionen zu bewerten.
