JD.com is China’s largest retailer and a leading one-stop e-commerce platform with a unique omnichannel approach. This Fortune 500-company provides nearly half a billion active customers direct access to an unrivalled range of high-quality, authentic products. Customers can either shop online or visit one of their stores. Their platform also helps to bring local and international brands into the booming e-commerce market.
This innovative (r)etailer sets the standard for shopping through its commitment to quality, authenticity and its vast product portfolio. It offers everything from fresh food and clothing to cosmetics and electronics. About 80 percent of turnover is in food. Their nationwide fulfillment network in China provides standard same day and next day delivery, a service level and speed that is unmatched globally. Currently, the company is expanding across Europe and the United States and is opening offices throughout these continents. The European headquarters is set up in Amstelveen.
The company combines its business model of direct sales – with complete control over the supply chain -, with a marketplace that limits the number of sellers, to ensure that it can maintain strict quality oversight. They take a zero-tolerance approach to counterfeits to assure customer access to only genuine products. Technology is something the company is actively taking to the next level. The current development of drone delivery and automatic delivery robots truly change the status quo.
JD.com was founded in 2004 in Beijing by CEO Richard Liu and has grown immensely ever since. It is a technology-driven company that builds reliable and scalable platforms that bring value to partners and customers in e-commerce, logistics, internet finance, cloud computing and smart technology. With a network of over 1,000 warehouses and the first fully automated warehouse in the world, this platform offers brands easy access to the Asian market. And very soon, the whole world will follow.
To emulate their Asian success in The Netherlands, JD.com is looking to hire for multiple commercial roles. Core values at this exiting start-up business unit are customer first, integrity, collaboration, gratitude, all-in and ownership. Their goal is to become the world’s most trusted company. So, if you have what it takes to be a JD employee, get ready to be part of something big.
