Company Description

We’re Adevinta, a global leader in digital marketplaces that reaches hundreds of millions of people each month through our household name brands across 16 countries. We’re all about matchmaking, and our sites help people find whatever they’re looking for in their local communities – whether it’s a car, an apartment, a sofa or a new job. Every connection made or item found makes a difference by creating a world where people share more and waste less. 

As a global network of loved local brands, including marktplaats in the Netherlands, Mobile.de in Germany and leboncoin in France, our teams are there to make things better, safer and easier for the people who choose to visit and use our marketplaces every month.

Our brands are supported by global Tech Hubs in Paris, Barcelona, Berlin and Amsterdam. Their goal is to develop common global products and innovation platforms which all of our brands can use. This means using cutting-edge technology to create highly scalable, customisable and secure products and components that free up development time and leverage our access to global data.

The Analytics Enablement team (named BIC), builds state-of-the-art data processing solutions for Adevinta, with an emphasis on volume, velocity, and privacy. We collect event data from our global marketplaces and provide them with low-latency (“realtime”) updates, visitor insights analysis, and targeted advertisement. We’re solving exciting problems at scale while keeping users’ privacy and data security in mind.
