  • Experience in planning and running events such as meetups, pitching competitions, or startup conferences  
  • A strong interest in new e-commerce business models and the startup scene in general, ideally in relation to fashion/lifestyle (i.e. influencer marketing, personalisation through AI, conversational commerce etc. )
  • Big plus if you have experience with CRM tools such as Salesforce or Podio (or know how to work with Google Sheets efficiently)
  • Fluency in written and spoken English

Your responsibilities

  • Setup and maintain different databases to capture relevant startups and partnership opportunities
  • Research emerging startups in the fashion/ecommerce space and evaluate their business models
  • Help our team host meetups and other cool tech events by planning, coordinating and executing
  • Sourcing opportunities for our team to promote Zalando towards startups in Europe (and beyond)
  • Help members of our team to develop their talks and blog posts

What you can expect from us

  • Colleagues who are strategic, transparent, supportive and encouraging - we like and help each other get things done
  • An international, diverse, stimulating work environment that’s buzzing with activity and ideas
  • Cool office atmosphere in the heart of Berlin
