We visited Zalando’s Dublin tech hub to find out more about what the company does and what it’s looking for in new hires.

Zalando is an online fashion platform with a growing tech team in Dublin. We spoke to some of its staff members – including head of product Becky Byrne, software engineer Séamus Ó Ceanainn and talent acquisition partner Zara McBrien – to learn more.

“We work with product design, engineering, data science and machine learning specialists, and we apply those to software products that really make an impact to our customers,” Byrne said.

“For instance, we’re working on ways to allow customers to identify topics that are important to them, such as sustainability within their clothing choices and also helping them to enable to reuse and resell their clothing.”

To help Zalando achieve these goals, the company needs people with “good engineering backgrounds coupled with a product mindset”, McBrien added, as well as people who are passionate about working with customers.
