July: Since April, we worked together with a group of students of the CIIS of Cologne University on a chatbot prototype as part of the annual Capstone Project. In July, they could finally reveal the results – at university as well as to interested KECse.
August: It’s party time! On August 12 our summer party took place – many of our new colleagues could finally meet in real life. We partied, laughed and ate some great food together at Dock² in Cologne. Read more about the summer party here.
September: At the Run & Fun Santander company run on September 12 in Mönchengladbach, our team of 11 participants not only mastered the 5-kilometer track, but also scored some gold medals: Business Analyst Declan was awarded as fastest out of 2.000 participants. Together with Simon, Teamlead Financial Controlling, and Lukas, Infrastructure Engineer, they also won first place as the men’s team.
Our online marketing was also successful in September: Sponsored Product Ads went live in the Kaufland app. More about that in the next chapter.
Another highlight in September? Technical Program Manager Felix and our Tech Recruiters Kristina and Vivian were part of the Pitch Club in Berlin.
October: Drama baby, drama! In October, some of the KECse were volunteers in a photoshoot at the Cologne office as well as at the fulfillment center in Bönen. You’ll see the results on our website soon – stay tuned!
We also had the great pleasure of announcing the return of our E-Commerce Day in 2023. You will be able to read more about that on this blog soon!
November: At the Digitale Leute Summit in Cologne, our HR colleague Christel spoke about the culture and work at Kaufland e-commerce. Additionally, Software Engineer Jakob and Software Architect Nikodem talked about “How to Scale Your Frontend.” At the Absolventenkongress, which also took place in Cologne, our HR colleagues had many interesting conversations and represented Kaufland e-commerce as an employer brand.
