Opportunities at Adevinta for 2020

Be the Change

In 15 countries around the world, we build marketplaces that support local communities and help shape a sustainable future. Work somewhere you can make a lasting impact.

Who we’re looking for

Barcelona Office

Our Barcelona office is located in the 22@ district of Barcelona, close to the beach and the city centre. Here you will find a dynamic workplace with around 1200 colleagues from over 34 countries. Our modern building was completed in 2019 and has an auditorium, open spaces for presentations, and an amazing ninth floor roof terrace with views of the Sagrada Familia and other famous Barcelona landmarks.

With a population of +1.6 million, Barcelona is the second-largest city in Spain and consistently ranks in the Top 5 European Tech Cities. With over 1,000 startups and tech companies, Barcelona is home to the fastest-growing startup community in Spain, the Mobile World Congress and the 4YFN. The city’s growing international tech community,  multicultural richness, outstanding gastronomy, mild weather and location by the Mediterranean coast all contribute to making Barcelona even more attractive to young talent and entrepreneurs

About our hub

We have local brands in fifteen countries but we also have two tech Hubs in Paris and Barcelona where we create global products, technologies, and services for 250 million unique users per month. These Hubs help to create more synergy between local brands and allow engineers to work on projects at a huge scale.

Central Teams

Our central teams work closely with teams in the local marketplaces to create products, services and systems that provide massive scale, high availability and perfect user experiences. They achieve this through an agile approach, where they leverage freedom of technology, experimentation, user research, and a fail-fast mindset.

Technology

We encourage Adevintans to explore new technology and find new ways to challenge what we know every day. This allows us to select the technology that makes the most sense in every situation. We follow the most modern architectural patterns, best practices, methodologies and tools and employ large scale installations of multi-tenant systems.

Our Services

We have teams focused on platforms and infrastructure, who manage global-scale deployments of services. Our data scientists and engineers make hundreds of millions of user behaviour events from all around the world understandable for analysts and business users in the company. For internal services (like delivery pipelines and build systems), our engineers support more than a thousand developers and enable them to code more with less hassle.

Remote Working

While we have beautiful offices in Barcelona, they are unfortunately closed at the moment due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The safety of our employees is our greatest priority and as a result, all teams have been working remotely since March and will continue to do so until at least the beginning of September. Adevinta has always been a remote-friendly company, so the transition to fully remote work wasn’t too difficult. Once our offices open again, our employees will still be allowed to enjoy our flexible working hours and work from home policy.
