Location

Berlin is the capital and the largest city in Germany and well-known for its amazing festivals, exciting nightlife and a high quality of living. With a population of 3.7 million it is only second to London in the Europe Union, even with one-third of the city's area being composed of forests, parks, gardens, rivers, canals and lakes. Berlin is a city with a deep history, Bismarck, Marx, Einstein, JFK and Bowie, they’ve all shaped – and been shaped by – Berlin.

Often referred to as Europe's newest start-up capital, a new start-up is founded every 20 minutes. The startup industry is set to produce 100,000 new jobs by 2020.

It's no secret that Berlin is cheaper than many of its European counterparts. Office overheads and the price of living are cheaper, which makes it a very attractive place for tech entrepreneurs. Home to HelloFresh, Delivery Hero, and Soundcloud we expect many more household names to be coming out of Berlin in the next few years.

We drive digital solutions for fashion, logistics, advertising and research, bringing head-to-toe fashion to more than 23 million active customers through diverse skill-sets, interests and languages our teams choose to use. 🌍. IT ALL STARTED WITH A SHOE... 👠...in a shared apartment/office/warehouse on Berlin’s trendy Torstrasse. Well, a few pairs of shoes actually. Since then we’ve sold a lot more shoes and have grown to be Europe’s largest online fashion retailer or you may call us Europe's most fashionable tech department. Today, we offer fashion-lovers in 15 different countries our wide range of products – from High Street favourites to designer brands, sportswear and kidswear for him and her. A lot has changed since then, but our core values have always remained the same – combining great fashion with the latest technology and exceptional customer service. A PROUD COMMUNITY Over the years, we have built a strong community. We love to share our passions, insights and expertise for technologies and topics we love through 100+ self-organised guilds, internal tech talks, training initiatives, demos, local meet-up events, conferences and more. In addition to encouraging an engaged community, we support you in building your reputation as tech leader - not only among your peers at Zalando but industry-wide. We know that every new technology and methodology we implement involves a learning curve, so our teams are dedicated to help everyone get up to speed on using the tools they need to work successfully. OPEN SOURCE 📢 We're passionate about collaboration and giving back to the community. Check out our open source projects to learn more about the technologies we are contributing to and building.
