Who are we?
We are a big digital player, one of the world’s biggest. And we love marketplaces.We operate digital marketplaces in 16 countries in Europe, Latin America and North Africa, employ c.
3,000 people and are growing at over 30% YoY.
For thousands of years, marketplaces have been essential to the development of economies, cultures and societies as a whole.
They are places where people from all different backgrounds come together to exchange information, goods, services, and ideas, and to improve their lives.
Every marketplace is unique. It reflects a given culture, which is enhanced as people and ideas connect across geographies and interests.
It’s a place where every person, place and thing can find a new purpose and become more valuable.
At Adevinta, we draw on the principles of successful marketplaces to do our job well. We actively exchange ideas, and we’re always learning from each other.
We are a company where everyone belongs, and our culture is based on mutual trust.
Above all, we keep a strong focus on creating and developing value - because we believe every house can be a home, every person can be useful, and every object can live a second, third or fourth life.
And we leverage our scale to help build a sustainable future where everything can find its purpose or a new one.
