Through sport, we have the power to change lives
Zaragoza is the HQ for the Iberian region as well as the rapidly-growing tech hub for all of adidas. The work we do here has the power to connect people all over the world and provide them with amazing sport-inspired experiences. But we can’t change lives if we don’t take care of our own. This is why we offer weekly classes like body balance, Cross-Fit and Zumba. We lead hikes into the mountains (another great reason to be in Zaragoza) and organize award-based activities for teams.
Careers without borders
With over 300 employees spanning across 10 different nationalities, we are truly an international headquarters. Our office is located just 20 minutes from the center of Zaragoza, with excellent public transport connections. Our privileged location boasts kindergartens, restaurants and shopping opportunities right on the doorstep. Plus, we are only a short distance from the national train and bus stations with easy connections with both Barcelona and Madrid.
Pioneering the future of work
At adidas Zaragoza, the world’s top developers, designers and tech creators are leading the way into the digital future. With such important work being done here, we believe in a flexible working hours model with a focus on work-life-balance for all employees. In 2016, our HR policies and outstanding social benefits earned us the ‘Top Employers in Spain’ certification and we are focused every single day on living up to this recognition.
Sport needs a space
Some of our most ambitious projects – adidas.com, miadidas and the adidas mobile app – are powerful because they enable sport to move seamlessly between the digital and the physical worlds. Sport is everywhere. This is especially true on our Zaragoza campus where we work hard to provide games and athletic activities for our employees. Our in-house initiative “Sports in Company” was created to organize open physical activities for employees and to give them the chance to not only practice sports, but to meet people from other departments and have fun together.
Besides regular activities like football and basketball - offered throughout the year - “Sports in Company” also provides weekly group classes including Body Balance, Zumba, CrossFit and various training camps. The program organizes some special events such as Women’s Races training sessions, Spartan Races and even training preparation for the Rock ’n’ Roll Race in Madrid. If am employee has a goal, in sport or otherwise, we want to help them achieve it.
Collaborating with those who inspire us
At adidas Zaragoza, we are extremely dedicated to our teams and colleagues – but we also realize that we exist as part of a larger community. That is why we offer initiatives such as teaching English lessons to the children in local schools, hosting open days at the office to introduce our neighbors to our culture, and working with local universities to build strong ties.
We remain committed to our corporate social responsibility promises and our employees are encouraged to participate in donating time to volunteer with local charities.
The future runs on fresh and diverse perspectives
Whether you are working to bring cutting edge technologies to our website, making our app an even more personalized experience, or pushing our customization platform to all new heights, you can be confident that your unique perspective matters here. At adidas Zaragoza, we know that a team made up of individuals with different ideas, strengths, interests and cultural backgrounds is the key to success. We have created an environment that encourages individuals to express themselves and bring forward new ideas. And we have set up specific programs focusing on key topics such as female leadership, disability and generations.
