The opportunity

Zalando User Experience designers work closely with product managers and developers in strong, agile teams. Individuals and teams are given as much autonomy as possible so they can innovate quickly. We employ an evolving mix of traditional user-centered methodologies, lean UX practices and design thinking to solve business problems through understanding user needs and motivations.

Your mission

As a UX designer you will take on a series of focused, deep challenges (each ca. 12-18 months) within a specific product team, executing on a specific mission. When you join us, you will take on a series of Tours of Mastery to hone your skills by working in different business units. Your first challenge might be, for example, to:

  • Design, test and iterate daily eCommerce interactions with millions of customers across Europe
  • Ideate, incubate and launch innovative new products as part of one of our mobile ventures focused on user engagement or mCommerce

In any case, you will…

  • Identify pain points and needs of users, bring the insights into the team.
  • Spread a user-centered design mindset to product + engineering colleagues.
  • Shape new products and improve existing interfaces that our customers use daily.
  • Design a broad range of products used on a wide variety of devices.
  • Manage requirements from very different directions, always orienting yourself to the concrete needs of the users.
  • Align interaction patterns and usability standards across products.

Your track record

To land this job you will show and explain raw artifacts from various stages of the design process that illustrate your proven ability to:

  • Translate complex product requirements into easy and intuitive user flows.
  • Collaboratively create responsive interfaces that inspire and engage customers.
  • Identify overarching interaction patterns and design holistically to ensure a consistent user experience across the full customer journey.
  • Break a long-term user experience vision down into concrete steps for agile development.
  • Explain your ideas, designs and user experience best practices in order to successfully convince, motivate and inspire stakeholders.
  • Test and refine prototypes with users within a rapid, iterative product development cycle.

What we offer

We’ll pay you a competitive salary, help you relocate to Germany and outfit you with the best tools. But the true perks for you might be:

  • Tour of Mastery: When you join Zalando, we aim to maximize your professional development by exposing you to multiple teams, disciplines and challenges over the course of your career
  • Personal branding support: From preparing talks and blog posts to networking with industry leaders
  • A large Zalando UX Community of Practice to align with and challenge your colleagues -- and to spread customer-centricity into the entire company

And on top of that you get a 40% discount when you shop at Zalando!
