Περιγραφή Εργασίας


At Skroutz, we have the vision to make everyone’s life better by creating the most trustworthy, trouble-free, and easy-to-use online discovery and shopping experience. We want to provide this experience not only to our users and partners but also to our team members.

Today we are going through one of the most exciting times for Skroutz. We are rapidly transitioning to a marketplace model, we constantly invest in technology and innovation and we acquired MyJobNow Delivery to enter the last mile market.

If a problem is hard then it is worth solving. It’s our role to isolate the problem from the solution and give users what they actually want, not what they think they want.

We firmly believe that people drive our business forward and we strive daily to build a powerful team that shares the same passion and enthusiasm for eCommerce and technology.

Our engineering values

  • Know your Tech. Develop and master your craft, sharpen your tools. Be proud of your work.
  • Release early & Iterate. Deliver prototypes and start gathering important feedback early on. Use that feedback to guide you. Don’t be afraid to compromise, make sure to come back & tidy things up.
  • Be a team player. Offer your help, listen and seek to understand. Step up & take initiative.
  • Don’t over anything. Don’t over-engineer, over-analyze, over-regulate, you get it.
  • Enjoy your work. Celebrate success.

How will you contribute to Skroutz vision?

The Discovery team is responsible for shaping the product discovery experience for all users. We help users navigate and filter through millions of products in thousands of categories and assist them in figuring out how their specific needs will be met. To be successful, we have to translate the optimal user experience to a technical product, designing and implementing multiple experiments along the way. Our products and systems must be fast and reliable, often supporting more than 100k requests per minute.

After some years of successfully launching and constantly improving our Android and iOS apps, currently used by hundreds of thousands of users, we are now ready to take them to the next level! Our vision is to make Skroutz a mobile-first company where apps will play a central role in revolutionizing the experience of buying online!
