As a Senior Product Manager in Fulfillment Core, you will shape products that ensure high availability of a relevant delivery options on-site, optimize fulfillment planning, predict delivery times using machine learning, and ensure that all parcels are delivered as promised. Your decisions will have a significant impact on the satisfaction of our 26+ million customers and directly drive on-site conversion. Help us achieve our vision of a smart Fulfillment Network that manages and optimizes itself while  providing the best delivery experience to our customers in an affordable way.

WHERE YOUR EXPERTISE IS NEEDED
  • At Zalando, your products are what you make of them. You will have end-to-end ownership, be responsible for the execution of your vision and the delivery of your product.
  • Determine long-term vision, generate and consolidate ideas, and biannual priorities in our OKR cycle.
  • You are the go-to person for your product. You pursue a deep understanding of our customers’ needs, driving relevant research within the organisation and diving into large data sets to generate and validate your ideas
  • You own the sprint backlog for one or two of our high-performing engineering teams, collaborate with internal stakeholders in Customer Fulfillment and other departments to ensure that priorities are aligned and we solve something that matters - not because somebody said so.
WHAT ARE WE’RE LOOKING FOR
  • You understand your customers and the product inside out. You have attention to detail and a deep love for a good metric that shows the quality and performance of your product.
  • You are very analytical and enthusiastic about digging into data. You really want to know, why this one metric changed by 0.5% in the last week.
  • You can break complex problems up into bite-size pieces and are able to explain them to stakeholders and engineers. You can keep it really simple!
  • You know methods to find the most valuable opportunities, slicing your solution to maximize return on invest and therefore revenue, profit or customer satisfaction.
  • You have strong communication and stakeholder management skills as well as the ability to manage projects with many dependencies.
  • You start with a “yes!” and remain a curious mind, when challenged by stakeholders or engineers. You don’t necessarily end with a “yes”, though. You stay calm in times of uncertainty or ambiguous priorities and help the teams to gain focus again.
  • Domain knowledge in logistics or eCommerce is not required, but beneficial
PERKS AT WORK
  • Culture of trust, empowerment and constructive feedback, open source commitment, meetups, game nights, 70+ internal technical and fun guilds, knowledge sharing through tech talks, internal tech academy and blogs, product demos, parties & events
