Our goal is to provide fantastic value to all of our 30 million daily users across 22 countries, with effective and safe online classified ads.

Our 3000+ employees in Schibsted Marketplaces focus daily on solving real problems for our users. With leading generalist marketplaces across Europe, exciting growth companies in Latin America, Eastern Europe and north of Africa, plus technology hubs in Barcelona, Oslo, London, Paris and Stockholm, our teams balance local insights with a global scale to develop innovative digital products and services.

Platform Services

Our systems in Platform Services are global-scale deployments of different services such as developer productivity tools, image and message processing systems, active and passive security scanning, big data and mapreduce clusters, messaging brokers, database and NoSQL backends and much more. We specifically have to support hundreds of services and hundreds of instances for our millions of consumers, using service discovery systems, autoscaling, dynamic load balancing and routing.

For internal services (like delivery pipelines and build systems), we support more than a thousand developers and develop dozens of developer productivity utilities to have our developers code more with less hassle. At all times our engineers are just a git clone away from real code and our teams are active contributors to several public OSS projects.
