THE OPPORTUNITY

Zalando is transforming from an e-commerce company into a multi-service platform that provides fashion as a service. We make it our mission to imagine and predict the infinite points of interaction between fashion and people - and develop the technology to make this possible. The 1,300 members of the overall Zalando tech team build most of our 40+ platform products in-house and open source.

Our Fashion Insights Centre in Dublin combines data science and engineering expertise to push the boundaries of Zalando as a fashion knowledge platform. You will have the opportunity to work closely with over 60 data science experts and engineers to design and build data science driven smart services at a massive scale using Scala, Python, Spark, EMR, Hadoop and Hive in the AWS cloud.

When it comes to how we work, we believe that trusting each other is key. Through our culture of Radical Agility, we let the principles of Autonomy, Mastery and Purpose guide our teams. We’ve started the journey; now we’re looking for the brightest minds to help reach our goals.

We are technology agnostic, if it works, use it; but we typically find ourselves developing in Scala on the Play framework and in Python. We use Kafka, Spark and Postgres to tie it all together and deploy our services and applications to AWS using Zalando’s STUPS framework for managed application lifecycles.

Smart Product Platform

We are rebuilding Zalando's central product system as an open, multi tenanted platform that can richly describe any article of fashion. Its event driven architecture enables the delivery of innovative data driven services to suppliers and customers while supporting the core functions of the business at massive scale. This includes multiple web stores, internal services and a wide variety of customer facing mobile apps. This platform will enable scaling and provide a rich, easily accessible data source for the generation of customer and fashion data insights.

Smart Services

Zalando is delivering web-scale data science tools to better understand fashion trends and customer behaviours. By combining these with Zalando’s industry knowledge within the product platform, we can generate enormous value both internally and for our suppliers and platform partners, both by enriching existing product data, and rationalising logistics and seasonal buying activities. You have the opportunity to work closely with data science experts to design and build these commercial services at scale using Scala, Spark, EMR, Hadoop and Hive in the AWS cloud.
