Online fashion platform Zalando has opened a research and development centre in Dublin, which will see 200 new jobs created over the next three years.
The retailer, which serves 15 markets across Europe including the UK, France, Germany and Spain, is actively recruiting data scientists and candidates from the science, maths and engineering disciplines as well as academia for a variety of R&D focused data science and engineering roles in its Fashion Insights Centre. Recruitment is already underway and the investment in the centre is being supported by IDA Ireland.
“Understanding our customers, and gaining deep insights into their purchasing patterns and their behaviour online means we can provide them with a personalised and compelling offering,”
“Investing to understand these insights has driven our growth since the earliest days of our company and has been the key to our success.”
Robert Gentz, (Founder) Zalando
Headquartered in Berlin, Zalando was founded in 2008 by David Schneider and Robert Gentz and today has a presence in 15 European countries selling fashion clothing, sports gear and shoes, to close to 15 million active customers. After just over six years of operation its business has grown to €2.2 billion in revenue in 2014, with an EBIT margin of 2.8%.
“Ireland continues to attract the world’s leading online companies from Europe, the US and elsewhere. Dublin is a serious contender for any online company looking to expand operations in Europe given the large cluster of digital companies operating here. I wish Zalando every success with their new Fashion Insights Centre in Dublin.”
