THE ROLE & THE TEAM
Product Offer Platform (POP) is a central team that has a direct impact on the customer experience. We provide capabilities that ensure great customer experiences, by only displaying the best product offers to our customers, and providing the relevant information to partners in order to maximise their sales on the platform.

In real time and across all markets, we combine product data with price and stock information to create offers and validate they are of high quality before presenting them to customers. We allow customers to express their preferences between offers, for instance, between the best priced offer or the fastest one. In collaboration with stakeholders responsible for the partner tools, we create effective feedback loops to optimise both the onboarding time of assortment as well as partner's sales in the Zalando Platform.

As a Principal Product Manager in the POP team, you will drive the strategy for these capabilities. This will initially involve developing a deep understanding of Zalando's commercial and technical landscape. You will bring clarity, and in collaboration with POP's leadership team, you will drive the roadmap and strategy for these capabilities and align it with stakeholders across the organisation in order to evolve them to support the wider Zalando Group Strategy.
