Scaling App development at Zalando

Volker Leck

Principal Mobile Engineer


Zalando has invested heavily in their mobile platforms over the past years. As a result, development teams have grown by leaps and bounds. Accommodating this level of contributions is posing some unique organizational challenges.

In this talk, we focus on the architectural quest to decouple a team’s day-to-day work from unrelated streams of changes. We present our efforts to restructure our app monolith into a modularized and extensible platform that enables long-term growth and allows for smooth and concurrent feature development.
