Product Offer Platform contributes to great shopping experiences for our customers through a series of capabilities. From composing offers or buying options in real time and across all sellers by combining product data with price and stock information, to validating that these offers have sufficient quality to be presented to customers, to ultimately providing customers with relevant buying options that suit their needs, allowing them to express their preferences between, for instance, the best priced offer or the fastest one.
As a Principal Product Manager in the Product Offer Platform team, you will drive the strategy for these capabilities, as well as contribute to strategic projects across Zalando.
Collaborating with other product managers, engineers, designers, analysts and a large network of stakeholders, you will solve complex problems, such as understanding what offers we should present to our customers and how they affect the business, or evolving the offer steering capabilities in line with the wider Zalando platform strategy.
