You Are Ready To Make An Impact

At Zalando Payments, we process all financial transactions of Zalando’s fashion store and other consumer-facing apps. Starting with a flawless user experience at checkout over the processing of payments to reconciliation in the backend, we cover the entire financial process to boost conversion and deliver a competitive advantage to our customers through smart risk steering.

You Are Setting Standards

As an Android engineer at Zalando Payments, you will design and develop our Payment SDK, creating a flawless payment experience for users of award-winning apps enjoyed by millions of people. You will challenge our status quo and help us define best “mobile first” practices. You will work with many ambitious and skilled autonomous teams, building and operating our microservices-based platform.

You Are Skilled

  • Demonstrated experience producing clean, maintainable, and well-tested code.
  • Ability to work in a self-directed way, fluently applying agile methodologies as well as state-of-the-art software development practices and their respective toolchains including testing, CI/D, source control, etc.
  • Deep understanding of Android SDK and Java, including relevant frameworks, such as testing and mocking frameworks, REST clients, dependency injection etc. If you are familiar with related languages in the JVM (e.g. Kotlin) or the iOS ecosystems, that is a plus.
  • Knowledge of good practices in software design and architecture, design patterns, and distributed systems. Having prior experience in designing and developing SDKs is a plus.
  • An attitude of accountability and knowledge-sharing — you enjoy reviewing others’ code and taking each other to the next level.
  • Excellent communication skills – you can spar with engineers, product owners, and other stakeholders. Fluency in English is a must.

Your Responsibilities

  • Help our team to develop amazing user and developer experiences for mobile payments.
  • Follow agile methodologies to continuously improve our Payment SDKs.
  • Identify and share your knowledge of state-of-the-art technologies that will help us to raise the bar.
  • Innovate to take mobile payments to the next level.

You Are Offered

We’ll pay you a market-rate salary and outfit you with the best tools. We’ll assist you with relocating to Germany. We offer the security of an expanding group of companies with 11,000 employees and a company pension plan.

But we expect that the true perks for you might be: 

  • Impact: We think big and act fast. What you're doing today will affect millions of customers tomorrow.
  • Zalando Tech’s spirit of Radical Agility — our culture that focuses on autonomy, mastery, and purpose.
  • When you join Zalando, you’re not simply accepting a job offer but embarking on your first mission within a larger tour of mastery. We aim to maximize your professional development and support you in strengthening your personal brand by exposing you to multiple challenges and a growing set of responsibilities over the course of your career.
  • Zalando Communities of Practice to align with and challenge your colleagues — and to spread our mobile-first mindset into the entire company.
  • On top of that, you get a 40% discount when you shop at Zalando.
