A strong company culture and values are important for a company - not just during a crisis. London Tech Week paid us a visit to learn how Zalando's commitment to customers, employees, and partners in combination with Our Founding Mindset has helped us to grow.
Adding new high-end brands such as ROKSANDA and Marchesa as well as expanding lines from Victoria Beckham and MOSCHINO: As announced in February, we're focusing on the premium category to sharpen our position as a designer destination for customers and brands.
Meet the star trainees of our Offprice team. "As part of Zalando's Data Analyst Trainee Program, we have ownership of business-relevant projects within Business Analytics, Data Engineering and Data Science scopes. We rotate departments every 3-4 months and are therefore exposed to various teams and stakeholders, which leads to a broad understanding of Zalando Lounge's business model. We are a diverse team from different nationalities and backgrounds like business informatics, economics, psychology, and physics. Some of us have an academic background, others have experience with startups and some have already worked in well-established tech companies. These differences create a very stimulating environment in which we can learn a lot from each other. What unites us is our common passion for Data Analytics and Data Science and finding impactful insights for Lounge. In the office, our favorite thing has been playing Kicker together. Now with remote working, ideas for “play” have become more creative: in the form of group fitness challenges, sharing memes etc."
GMV wächst im ersten Halbjahr um 25,1%, der Umsatz um 19,6%: Wir freuen uns mitteilen zu können, dass Zalando trotz der Herausforderungen der letzten Monate zwischen Januar und Juni stark und profitabel wuchs.
Meet Alejandro. "As part of the platform development team, I build scalable solutions from scratch that accelerate Zalando's journey towards making the European fashion market for every brand, no matter their size, accessible for all. For more than 11 years, I have combined developing my career with my passion for volunteering in social development initiatives. It motivates me to work at a company that takes positive social impact at scale as seriously as I do - for example our recent partnership with Ashoka, a global social entrepreneurship network. As a Zalando employee, I currently have the opportunity to work as a pro-bono consultant for the Coronavirus Makers movement. It's a community of +15K builders that are developing equipment such as 3D printed respirators to cope with the COVID-19 challenges. My role is to help them transform their organization from an online community into a decentralized, autonomous NGO that captures the energy of all its members and converts it into the highest positive social impact while minimizing waste of efforts from their committed volunteers."
