Company 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. 

 

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 global Tech Hubs in Barcelona, Amsterdam, Paris and Berlin. Their goal is to develop common global products and innovation platforms that 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.

 

We are currently looking for an experienced Technical Product Owner to join our Engineering Productivity team in Barcelona. The Engineering Productivity team is one of the teams building the Common Platform, a managed PaaS providing a cohesive ecosystem that accelerates Adevinta's product development by enabling engineers to effectively deliver secure, reliable and efficient software.


 

The team's mission is to provide tools and services that increase the quality and throughput of software systems related to Adevinta's core business.

The team provides automation of all the steps from code to production, as well as providing insight metrics on the team's development flows.

 

If you’d like to be part of a product-oriented team focused on making complex things easy for our users so that they can focus on delivering great features in our marketplaces, this could be the perfect match for you.
