Working at Adevinta

Can I work remotely?

What sort of people are you looking for?

We celebrate individuality, but there are definitely some traits that will make you a great match for Adevinta.

You’re a “people person”

You’re a great communicator and team player and your curiosity in others helps you to connect with those around you. You’re not afraid of giving and receiving constructive feedback designed to help yourself and others develop.

You live and breathe user experience

You care about our end users and will go the extra mile to do what is right for them by thinking about their pain points, centering them in your projects and always championing their experience.

You’re a “system thinker”

You’re interested in seeing the bigger picture and thinking about how your work impacts others across the business. And you use that information to tackle problems by evaluating implications and thinking about the long term effects of decisions.

You enjoy analysing data

You use data to see problems others can’t – and learn from the insights to make improvements and move things in the right direction. You love using data to spot trends and make inferences, then transform those insights into smart ideas.

I’m not a developer/engineer. Is there still a role for me?

We have many different types of roles available at Adevinta, including marketing, sales, finance, design and research. Whatever your passion, there could be a role for you.

How does Adevinta support diversity and inclusion?

At Adevinta, we want to make sure all of our employees feel valued, so we ask our people what they think, how they feel in the workplace and what they’d like to see happening in the future. We take pride in our Change Makers, an international peer-led group of volunteers with a mission to build a more inclusive workplace by engaging with local communities, empowering Adevintans on a personal level and driving organisational change across the company. Examples of what we’ve celebrated in the past include Pride Month, Black History Month and International Women’s Day.

Our benefits vary across marketplaces and locations but include perks such as gym membership, annual holidays, personal development opportunities and flexible working hours. 

Do you help with relocation?

It depends on the team, location and role, but we are sometimes able to help with relocation by sponsoring visas, finding you a place to live or providing support for financial changes i.e. taxes.

Do you allow flexible work hours?

We believe that work is what you do, not where you do it. So we provide flexible hours and remote work options that give you the autonomy and scope to set your own agenda and working patterns.

Do you offer part-time positions?

Yes, we do. Normally we make it clear in the job description of each role whether it is part time or full time, but there are some roles that allow both.

But recruitment processes generally include an introductory phone call with HR to get to know you a bit better, then some more interviews to either meet the team or test the required skills for the role. We also put a high value on culture. This means we evaluate candidates according to specific competencies and behaviours, and think about what they can add to the company culture. Sometimes we even have designated culture interviews.
