The Zalando Fashion Insights Centre was founded with the aim of understanding fashion through technology. Our engineers work with the latest technologies in support of Europe’s largest and most progressive e-commerce company as it transitions to a truly open commerce platform for suppliers and customers.

At the Fashion Insights Centre you will join our core engineering teams in delivering a micro-services architect platform supporting data-science driven smart services. Teams at Zalando are self-organising, well-resourced and committed to best-practice. The centre itself is new and rapidly expanding, giving you the opportunity to significantly influence the R&D and engineering work that we drive within Zalando. We've started the journey; we’re looking for the brightest minds to help deliver our goals.

We are technology agnostic, if it works, use it; but we typically find ourselves developing in Scala on the Play framework and in Python. We use Kafka, Spark and Postgres to tie it all together and deploy our services and applications to AWS using Zalando’s STUPS framework for managed application lifecycles.

Main requirements

  • 3 years + professional development experience, preferably with Scala, Java or Python.
  • Experience building and deploying PaaS/SaaS systems at scale in the cloud.
  • An aptitude for analytical and critical thinking. Interest in current trends and research in software and web services.
  • Self motivation and the ability to drive work and innovation within an autonomous team.

Nice to have

  • Knowledge of PostgreSQL, Kafka, Redis and Cassandra is an advantage.


  • A one-month mentoring program
  • Internal tech talks, skills-building courses and technical “People Leads” who help you achieve mastery
  • Personal branding support: From preparing talks and blog posts to networking with industry leaders
  • Community: hack weeks, movie nights, coder dojos, +70 self-organized tech guilds and more
  • Competitive salary
  • 40% Zalando shopping discount and commuter discount
  • Relocation assistance for internationals
