, , - at Catawiki, we come across exceptional objects such as these every single day. As Europe’s fastest growing online auction platform, our mission is to make special objects available to everyone.
In fact, 10 million users are buying and selling on Catawiki every month. This means we are continually growing and always on the lookout for new talent.
Born and raised in The Netherlands, we started in 2008 as a platform where collectors could manage their collections online. Yet, times change, ideas evolve, and in 2011 we hosted our first online auction and we haven’t looked back since! We’ve now grown to 650+ Catawikians working across 7 International offices and are proud to have maintained our start-up mentality.
Our Engineering story
Catawiki operates in a huge market which brings a lot of unique challenges and opportunities. Having more than 12+ million monthly visitors, Catawiki’s Engineering team takes the stability and the scalability of our systems and applications seriously.
We strive to build scalable systems that will perform well under load, by deciding what algorithms and data structures our programs use, by always estimating and benchmarking our system’s performance, and by choosing the right technologies. Our Engineering team is spread over many Product teams across customer journeys on both sides of our marketplace (Search, Fraud Protection, Localisation, Payments, Bidding Engine, etc.) and we use a no-nonsense microservice architecture approach.
