ProntoPro.it is Italy’s largest local-service marketplace. Although we are experiencing extremely rapid growth, we haven’t yet achieved our objective. We are looking for brilliant people to help us achieve it.
Our objective is to have a real social impact: we wish to bring transparency and meritocracy in a market where this is lacking, and give work to those people who really deserve it. We also firmly believe that, in order to have a meaningful impact, it is not enough to create value for a few customers: we need to build and scale a product that will be used by millions.
We are a startup experiencing explosive growth: in March 2015 we launched with 2 people, today we have reached over 100 people at ProntoPro. Average age is 29, our offices in Milan, Vienna and Rome are open-space, and we strive to minimize bureaucracy: everyone has great responsibility and directly impacts on our success. We have prestigious institutional investors such as Immobiliare.it, while our angel investors and advisors hold leadership positions at Google, Facebook, eBay, McKinsey, and Unicredit; it’s safe to say we don’t have the risk profile of a typical startup.
We do have competitors: we actually were the last company to enter this market. However, we are not concerned: we are now 3 times bigger than the second largest player.
For our Headquarters in Milan we are looking for people who get excited at the prospect of building a huge company that will greatly affect the lives of millions, as it does already in Italy. We are currently launching into the German Market and need new talented people who want to make a difference.

You will be an integral part of a team that is dedicated to our international expansion. You will support the creation of scalable and predictable growth. We are a classic marketplace with supply and demand - if we grow, it’s thanks to you.
Your job will transform several times.

We are looking for entrepreneurs who take real ownership, not people who are waiting for someone to tell them what to do.
