The Zalando Community of Practice brings together over 100+ product designers, each with our own unique mix of skills (Strategy, UX, UI, Service Design and specialty skills like motion design, branding, creative technology and typography).

We combine empathy, science and creativity to make engaging and joyful user experiences to ultimately reimagine fashion. To us, fashion is a way to enable people to connect and to bring them together, to express themselves, to create change and facilitate diversity.

Product Designers steer this change on a variety of missions within a diverse range of business units. In B2C you will work on driving our core business; B2B you will help us achieve our platform strategy; and in B2E (employee-facing) you will design software to make us all more effective.

You will work in cross-functional teams in close cooperation with developers, product managers, business stakeholders and other designers. Teams work with end-to-end responsibility for solving meaningful customer problems - from ideating through prototyping and user testing to bringing features live and checking their performance.
