Subscription is mission critical to the success of Zalando's rapid growth ambitions. Right now, we are at the beginning of the subscription journey to conceptualize, build and scale subscriptions across multiple business models in Zalando. The subscription business model is where our customers must pay a recurring price at regular intervals for access to a product or service. At Zalando, we already have this model for plus memberships and are currently exploring this for many more use cases.
As a product leader within Zalando payments for subscriptions, your product(s) would be critical to the ability of our customers to sign up for subscriptions and to the payment experience of the subscription sign up. You would work very closely with market leaders to build up your strategy on our customer's favourite payment methods, understand their P&L and make them accessible for subscription sign ups. In this role, we need someone who is able to build scalable products that serve multiple subscription business models, thereby making a difference to the lives of our customers.
As a (Principal) Product Manager you are fully responsible for the payment pillar within the larger subscription product line. You should be aware of the regulatory environment and the challenges, but also the opportunities that come with it, always driven by the customer. You will work with teams across the company to remove friction in the buying and payment process, making sure that customers are able to pay how they want to. Please visit us
