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. Modern logistics centers, and the use of big data and personalization, mean that online sales can be handled with increasing efficiency. As the category leader – a major European e-store with pet-related products – we want to continue to be at the forefront of e-commerce. While we aim to achieve continuous growth, we remain faithful to the key values of our company– a dynamic and flexible approach, constant learning opportunities, and inventive thinking at every level in the organization. The satisfaction of our customers – animal lovers – remains our primary goal, and the trust they place in us is the highest honor. Thanks to the passion of our employees, our customers in over 30 European countries can rest assured that their order is in good hands.

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 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.
