Job description

Hello! 👋 I am Roberto, Area Delivery Manager of the Loyalty Area at zooplus. We are looking for new team mates to help us to deliver good quality loyalty products for our customers. Our goal is to increase the engagement of our customers with zooplus and to do it we have in place these four amazing teams in which ones you may fit:

  • Coupons: Discounts, free shipping, extra points... whatever you need we can make it! We support all the company coupon strategy. Recently we delivered "My coupons page" and now we will rearrange all of our data for future faster developments. Our apps are built in Java but planning to move to Kotlin+React
  • Discounts: It is great to have a permanent discount in the shops you usually buy. We provide these discounts for one or three years to save our costumers a lot of money. Our apps are built in Java but also planning to move to Kotlin+React in this new phase, getting the chance of new developments.
  • Autoshipment: We created this product to allow our customers to have recurrent orders at home with the minimum effort from their side, increasing loyalty and satisfaction. We are the owners of a legacy app in php and currently we are redoing it in Kotlin+React. First deployment of the awesome new app will be on July! We like to work sometimes in pairs, trying to expand our expertise area sharing front & back while learning together new skills.
  • Rewards: Once we made a purchase in our shop, we would like to reward you with some bonus points or stamps for future orders. We make this happen with several applications currently in Scala but moving them to Kotlin+React. We have a quite intense usage of database and a big amount of transactions.

  • We work in small self-organized teams where you will have the opportunity to grow on your professional career.
  • The environment is very friendly and sometimes we do some activities together after work and also of course with other teams. Moreover, there is no strict dress code here so you can come with a simple T-shirt.
  • We are used to doing pair programming and learning from each others. This way we can share knowledge between us.
  • We deliver value by developing new features, maintaining existing products and improving all the infrastructure we need for it, so we also would like to have a colleague that likes to be cross-functional.
  • We like to learn and deliver good quality products and for that we think that continuous delivery, clean code and DevOps mindset are the best way to do it.
  • English is the official language of the company, we have mates from other countries inside our teams sometimes or we call to synchronize with other teams located in Krakow or Munich. Being able to communicate fluently in English is a must.
