PEOPLE Working in our ABOUT YOU Tech Hubs in Zagreb and Cluj-Napoca
ABOUT YOU is rapidly growing and on the way to become one of the best tech employers in Europe! That is why we have opened several Tech Hubs across Europe in spring 2022 – finding outstanding tech employees from the local tech communities. We started our first Hubs in Zagreb (Croatia) and Cluj-Napoca (Romania).
The ABOUT YOU Tech Hubs serve as our presence in the local tech communities and as a social anchor point for all local employees. Sure, you can work completely remote, too - but you don't have to. With the local Tech Hub teams we just want to create the best possible working environment for our developers and attract the best talents from all over Europe!
Who we are
ABOUT YOU was founded in 2014 and our headquarters are in Hamburg, Germany. We went public in 2021 and our revenue is about 1,73 billion EUR (2021/2022). Over 1000 employees work for ABOUT YOU and we have large development teams working on our retail store and the platform itself. We are tech-savvy and passionate about innovative ideas. We are driven by our growth, but still place a very high value on the development of each individual. That's why we offer different career paths (expert and manager) and even the possibility to change jobs within the company according to your strengths and interests. We work on a high technical level, are enthusiastic about interdisciplinary teamwork and believe in the advantages of intercultural teams.
Not (only) a fashion company
With SCAYLE.com - we made a product out of our cloud ecommerce platform and offer it to large retailers (e.g. Tom Tailor, Marc O’Polo, ...). SCAYLE is also the cutting edge technical platform behind aboutyou.com (e.g. we are fans of Kubernetes, Go, React, grpc and more). With the platform, we deliver more than 100 shops for our ever-growing customer base.
Our Offices: Local social anchor points.
Besides our headquarters in Hamburg, our current Tech Hubs are located in some of the biggest tech communities in Europe. We offer great coffee, fresh fruits, the newest technical equipment (MacBooks, external displays,…) and an outstanding team to work with. Every Tech Hub is centrally located, too – so it's easy for you to just come in for a few hours to work in a nice environment or have a workshop with other Tech Hub members. Our Tech Hub managers also host regular after-work events to get to know each other outside of the office.

Many countries, one common language
Just in case you are wondering: although we were founded in Germany, we all speak English in the ABOUT YOU tech teams - and for good reason: we have 55 nationalities in our tech units! English is also the main written language, for example for documentation and code comments. It should be really easy for you as non-native English-speaker (like most of us) to join our team and get started. But if you are from one of our Tech Hub countries and prefer to ask questions about ABOUT YOU and working in one of our Tech Hubs in your native language, that's easy, too. Just contact us directly by email. We are looking forward to hear from you!
To be clear: we don't operate the ABOUT YOU Tech Hubs to save money or outsource simple activities. Every employee - whether at our headquarters or in a Tech Hub - is a full-fledged member and works in their area of expertise with teams from our headquarters in Hamburg and other Tech Hubs. Furthermore, everyone gets the same salary depending on their role - no matter where you work from.
One thing is particularly important to us: we want to become one of Europe's leading tech employers. To achieve this we have to do everything we can to protect and further develop our corporate culture, which is based on teamwork, technological ambition and joy to grow together.
