We are Kaufland e-commerce: What makes us special

What makes Kaufland e-commerce so special? To find an answer to this question, various interviews and surveys were conducted with applicants, employees, recruiters and management. In workshops with HR colleagues as well as the management of and the Schwarz Group, the results were discussed and the „Employer Value Proposition“ was defined.

The result is 4 core elements that make Kaufland e-commerce an exciting employer:

Our goal is to successfully drive innovations as a team and thus actively shape the e-commerce of tomorrow – our high ambitions continue to motivate us every day.
  • Kaufland e-commerce is a particularly flexible, dynamic and high-performaning company. We benefit from flat hierarchies and the power and infrastructure of a large group of companies. In addition, applicants can decide for themselves whether they want to work from the offices in Cologne or Darmstadt or entirely from home – this enables flexible working and a good work-life balance.
  • With employees from 47 different nations, Kaufland e-commerce is characterised by diversity and a strong sense of togetherness. We believe that only differing views and perspectives can lead to a successful result – this is why openness, tolerance and cooperation are actively practiced at an equal level at Kaufland e-commerce, from trainee to CEO.
  • At Kaufland e-commerce, you can actively help shape the future instead of just going along for the ride. It doesn’t matter to us whether the idea comes from a student trainee or a team leader, it’s the result that counts – regardless of experience level. That’s why everyone can work on exciting tasks and develop their skills right from the start. We live entrepreneurship.
