Why Zalando Research?

We believe research should not be enclosed in the ivory towers of abstract and theoretical hypotheses. Our research is derived from real customer problems and challenges we face in our everyday work. Putting the customer at the forefront of our thinking is paramount for Zalando Technology.

We enable our research scientists to proactively exchange knowledge with other research communities. On top of speaking at conferences and publishing papers, we empower research collaborations with the global industry and academic partners. Our goal with Zalando Research is to have an official mandate for our talented research scientists to work from, which also insists on collaborative projects within the greater academic community.
