Catawiki is Europe’s largest curated platform for buying & selling special objects in the most easy & reliable manner. Our mission is to connect passionate enthusiasts across the globe with special objects that have interesting stories behind them. We are a marketplace that operates across 29 categories grouped under 4 business verticals : Collectables, Art & Antiques, Luxury & Mobility.
Every object is hand-picked by our 200+ in-house experts before being approved for an auction. Our promise to the buyers : ‘Just find the object you love, and we’ll take care of the rest’. A piece of the moon, a complete dinosaur skeleton, the Pope's hat and the world's smallest book are just some of the extraordinary objects that have found their way onto Catawiki, among the 11 Million+ that we have auctioned so far.
Started in The Netherlands in 2008, we have grown rapidly since introducing the auction model on our site in 2011. In 2020, we are on a €450 M GMV run rate, growing at 25-30% yoy with healthy EBITDA margins. We are well on track to reach our goal of becoming a Billion GMV business in Europe in the next 3-4 years. An expansion into Asia and N. America is part of the plan as well.
We’re looking for a Vice President of Engineering to help build Catawiki, an e-commerce site for special, collectable objects used by millions of people across Europe.
As the leader of the Catawiki engineering team, you’ll be responsible for driving our efforts toward ensuring we have efficient, flexible, and cost-effective technical platforms.

This role reports into the CPTO and is an integral part of the company’s leadership team. The other key stakeholders are the other CXOs/VPs and the board of the company.
All in a work environment where people from all backgrounds can thrive and grow. Your impact will help millions of people buy and sell the objects of their dreams. Based in our Amsterdam office, you’ll report to the CPTO.
Imagine leading the teams that are the backbone of that scale!
Then we would love to talk to you!
