Zalando is Europe’s leading online fashion platform for women, men and children. A publicly traded company as of fall 2014, Zalando has more than 15 million customers in 15 countries. Our technology offices are located in Berlin (HQ), Dortmund, Mönchengladbach and Erfurt, Germany; Dublin, Ireland; and Helsinki, Finland.
Zalando's tech department has built most of our platform in-house, using open source and cutting-edge technologies such as React, Scala, Python, Cassandra, Clojure, AWS, and Docker. We work in small, agile, autonomous teams and build our systems around five key principles: API First, REST, SaaS, cloud, and microservices.
What does it take to become “a Zalando”? Above all, it requires passion: to experiment, learn, fail, and repeat the process, so that we get stronger and better every day. Zalando Tech includes men and women from more than 50 different nations and representing a seemingly endless number of interests, hobbies, programming-language preferences, personality types and other characteristics. What unites us is the energy and enthusiasm we share in tackling our common purpose: to deliver award-winning, best-in-class shopping experiences to our customers.
