We invite you to join us on a critical and exciting mission!

This is an unique opportunity to be part of a strategic movement inside the company. It’s early days, but traction of GenAI-enabled initiatives at our company is growing by the week. Two dozen use case experiments are already being planned/built/tested by teams across our CUs, with more in the pipeline, fed by e.g. the successful Hackathon organized by the Horizontals team in Jan 2024. GenAI is a key bet for OLX Europe for FY25 and beyond. As such, we have decided to build diverse Data teams to supercharge our company’s approach to GenAI.

We invite you to this journey, joining a team that will break through walls and build cross-functional connections with everyone around. A team where a common mission and goals matter more than reporting lines. We build on each other, asking for help and support when needed, and we proactively support others.
