Job Description

We’re Adevinta, a global leader in digital marketplaces. Our household name brands, including marktplaats in the Netherlands, Mobile.de in Germany and leboncoin in France, reach hundreds of millions of people every month 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.

Our brands are supported by Central Teams based in our main Hub in Barcelona and our other global Hubs in Amsterdam, Paris and Berlin. Our local brands are founded on the connections between people, and as an international group we create networks of talented Adevintans who work together towards a common purpose across geographies and disciplines.

As part of Adevinta’s Central Teams, the Trust and Transactions tribe offers expertise and solutions for solving user and business problems to help our millions of customers trade safely online every day. Within Trust & Transactions the Messaging team  owns the product and the infrastructure that allows our customers to talk to each other in over 10 Marketplaces from the Adevinta group all over the world. Our team is formed by a group of 30 multicultural individuals from different areas such as UX, Product, Data and Tech that work together to develop top-of-the-line software products.

The Messaging team not only owns the communication aspect in our marketplaces, but is also uniquely positioned to impact critical aspects in our user’s transactional journey.
