Customer Inbox is a platform team with the goal of enabling Zalando to practise best-in-class off-site communication with its customers. Our mission is to enable products, programs and demand teams to better activate our customers and to achieve operational goals.

As a Product Manager in Customer Inbox, you will be working closely with our growing team of engineers, data engineers and scientists, and product peers to shape our product portfolio. As communication is an essential part of the customer journey, you will be a representative of our team in many global initiatives. Together with our engineering teams you translate the needs to support individual projects into scalable solutions and platform capabilities. You will need to be able to react quickly to changing circumstances, to handle multiple projects in parallel, and to support hands-on whenever necessary. While you always start with a "yes", you are also ready to defend solutions and decisions based on the company's strategy and best practices.

Customer Inbox is about information and engagement. We aim to serve our customers with highly relevant content on their preferred communication channel. Therefore, up to 10 million times per day we contact one of our 45+ million active customers benefiting from personalized, practical information. Further scaling the system, widening its scope and increasing content relevance by learning from customer feedback and behaviour are some of the challenges we are faced with.

At Zalando, our vision is to be the Starting Point for Fashion - one that is inclusive by design. We only assess candidates based on qualifications, merit, and business needs. We welcome applications from people of all gender identities, sexual orientations, personal expressions, racial identities, ethnicities, religious beliefs, and disability statuses. We only want to know why you're great for this role, so please avoid including your picture, age, and marital status in your CV as well.

We want to provide you with a great candidate experience. Please feel free to inform us of any accommodations you may need, so we can best support and assist you throughout the hiring process.
