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.

I have been working at zooplus and living in Vienna since August 2017 and I still can’t decide which one is better. Is it all those nice colleagues in the office? Or the most beautiful view from our 11th floor in the center of Vienna? Or the challenging & interesting and for sure not boring job? Or walking every morning and every afternoon across the Donau in this awesome city? I can’t choose - you should try it!

My job and I are a perfect match, but at the same time it is a challenge and learning opportunity. I feel I grew personally and professionally since I joined zooplus in 2017 as one of the first employees in the Vienna office. Since then our team growth and I am blessed to work with a lot of talented colleagues around me who became friends. I would highly recommend zooplus as an employer, especially if you want to prove yourself and work in a team environment.

What do I like about working for zooplus? Friendly and experienced colleagues, who are always here to help you and the training system, where new colleagues could develop their skills. Projects we are working on, in teams, where ideas are welcomed and tested to improve our skills and to achieve our business goals. Usage of my native language at work is also big plus and English/German for communication within the company. The office in Vienna is new, so everything looks stylish and modern. I am happy to work in zooplus as we are great team in Online Marketing as well as in Vienna: one of the most important things for me is to feel happy at work.
