About us

In 1999, a small group of people had a great idea: to bring pet shops online and make life easier for pet lovers. Today zooplus AG is Europe’s leading online retailer of pet supplies. With over 6,8 million active customers in more than 30 European countries and 1,524 billion Euro revenue in 2019, zooplus is comfortably the market leader in the online segment. zooplus currently employs more than 750 employees in 18 international locations, working in the areas of Sales & Marketing, Category Management, Purchasing, IT, Logistics, Finance and HR.

At zooplus, we believe e-commerce to be the sales model of today and for the future. E-commerce has become one of the fastest developing areas of business. In the Netherlands we are online with our shop since 2007. Beside our office in the city center we are also running a huge warehouse which is packing up to 20.000 parcels a day. The team rapidly expanded up to more than 20 employees and we are still hiring. zooplus NL is the market leader in online pet supplies for the Netherlands. Because of our flat hierarchy and dynamic business, we need to work fast, flexibly and effectively. In the Dutch office, beside the Managing Director, we work in Shop Management, Customer Care, Online Marketing, Category Management, Pricing, Transportation and Office Management/HR.

I joined zooplus in November 2017, looking for a suitable new professional “home” for my skills and objectives. I belong to the Operational Excellence team, in Logistics, and we are busy designing, leading and executing transformational projects with high impact along the value chain of the company. What makes my job awesome is the possibility of driving change in zooplus, in addition to the great and familiar working environment, with supportive and valuable colleagues – both peers and managers alike. Plus, the trust deposited in our team gives us freedom to be independent and creative to find our own ways of accomplishing our challenging targets.

I joined zooplus in January 2017 as Java Engineer in Finance team.The products I am responsible for do an important job in the background: they help the company to process all incoming orders and release them to Logistics. In the end, this leads to satisfied and returning customers who generate revenue for zooplus. zooplus itself helps me to be a better developer by helping me to increase my competence level and by exposing me to the cutting edge of cloud and other technologies. The best part of zooplus is how my colleagues help me to solve problems, so that I can simply focus on coding, that I enjoy most.

When I read a very interesting job advertisement more than 4 years ago, I was eager to know more about the details of this vacancy. Owning a hungry Labrador, I only knew zooplus as a loyal customer. After two job interviews I was astonished and surprised about the development of zooplus and the complexity of the mechanics of its business. But most importantly, I was impressed by the professional and charming interviewers, and as you might have guessed already - my current colleagues. My initial task was to build up an IT Purchasing landscape by myself, which is now fully implemented. Since day one my dog 'Whiskey' has accompanied me in this journey and my colleagues love her dearly. In case I face some icebergs at work, she is the best melting buddy.

I have never owned a pet in my life. Therefore, it’s no surprise, that I didn’t know zooplus five years ago. Back then I have just started the fifth semester of my Bachelor’s degree in Management & Technology at TU München and was looking for a student job in the logistics area. Only a few days before I found zooplus, I had a successful job interview with a different company, but I turned it down because zooplus looked so attractive. Retrospectively, it was the best thing that could have happened to me. When I finished my Bachelor’s degree one year later I was offered the chance to start as a fulltime Replenishment Manager at the “Zoo”. And being a Replenishment Manager at zooplus doesn’t only mean supplying our warehouses with goods. It also means working together with so many interesting people and being involved in so many exciting projects - it never gets boring. Finally, I’ve decided to go back to TU München and add a Master’s degree. And once again zooplus is giving me the greatest support.

I joined zooplus in Munich on a freezing day in October 2015. Thankfully there was hot tea in the kitchen and warm welcoming colleagues in the room which have kept me going till now. I joined zooplus since it was a 16-year-old company that is growing tremendously and proudly boasted of an IT team with a lot of International colleagues having office in the city center of Munich. As part of the “Shop” Team, I get a chance to work in the most challenging and dynamic parts of our IT systems which I find very rewarding. The company supports a culture of freedom and fun which helps in overall development of the people who work here. The employee policies are fair and friendly in a competitive market. Work is not the only thing we do here. Our legendary office parties and Friday beers with colleagues are a specialty down here on the 2nd floor.
