  • Experience. You are a very seasoned design professional with experience building and growing inclusive team environments. While you have likely led larger teams before, you are inspired to dive deep to solve truly meaningful problems that make customers feel like we understand them. To land a design management job at Zalando, you will show and explain raw artifacts from your work defining product design strategy, executing tactically in a complex environment and leading people to perform at their best. 
  • Empathy. You have the mindset and methodologies to understand your customers, colleagues and employees. You guide your teams through moments of ambiguity and create a safe and inclusive space in which people perform at their personal and collective best.
  • Craft. You master interaction design, choreograph UX design processes and orchestrate unified experiences across devices and throughout the customer journey — while knowing how to embody specific solutions in usable and delightful interactions.
  • Experimentation. You are willing to kill your darlings. You take a forward-looking generative approach and make design decisions on evidence. You guide your team to solve problems in the best way possible. You know when to work iteratively and when to take bold bets.
  • Storytelling. You bring not just users but also stakeholders and employees on a compelling journey by explaining a clear customer experience vision and telling compelling tales.
