Why Join ProntoPro

Vision

Stiamo costruendo un enorme marketplace di servizi: la piattaforma in cui puoi trovare tutto da dog sitter a idraulici a detective privati. Non accettiamo l'attuale modello - antiquato e non funzionante - basato su Pagine Gialle, ricerche Google, e passaparola. Stiamo cambiando il modo in tu cui trovi e scegli fornitori affidabili; e rivoluzioniamo il modo in cui i fornitori di servizi trovano clienti. Portiamo trasparenza nel mercato, e vogliamo assicurarci che i bravi vengano premiati e i meno onesti riconosciuti. Read more

About us

ProntoPro is a marketplace for artisans and professionals.

We help millions of customers to find the professionals they need: a photographer for a wedding, a plumber, a guitar teacher, and many more. We are bringing meritocracy and transparency to a market which is currently opaque. We want to revolutionize both the way customers choose a professional and the way professionals find new customers.

We are a startup facing a hyper-growth: on March 2015 we used to be 2 people; today we are more than 100.
Average age is 29 years old; we work in open spaces and minimize bureaucracy.
Everyone at ProntoPro has great responsibilities and a direct impact on our success.

We have institutional investors such as Immobiliare.it and high profile angel investors coming from Google, Facebook, eBay, McKinsey and Unicredit.
We are a startup, but without the typical risks of a startup.
We already conquered the market in Italy, Austria, Switzerland, Germany, France, and Spain. And we want more!

We are looking for people willing to build a digital giant that has a strong impact on everybody's life. This is not a quiet job, we put our heart in it.

Working at ProntoPro

You will have visibility over the whole business and not just on your area of competence.

We strongly believe that everybody can give an important contribution, also from the architecture, product, and business strategy point of views.

In particular, you will play with the following stack: Python, Scala, Tensorflow, Keras, Pytorch, Kinesis, Spark, Hadoop, Airflow, Kubernetes, Drone.io, Travis, Docker, Git.
We continuously strive for enriching/upgrading our tech stack and we cannot wait for your contribution!

You will also attend meetups/events and have the chance to speak about how we face and solve tech challenges at ProntoPro.

    CHI SIAMO

    ProntoPro.it è il portale dei professionisti N. 1 in Italia. Aiutiamo milioni di clienti a trovare il professionista di cui hanno bisogno: dal fotografo per il matrimonio, all’idraulico, all’insegnante di chitarra. Stiamo portando meritocrazia e trasparenza in un mercato finora opaco; vogliamo trasformare sia il modo in cui gli italiani scelgono un professionista sia quello in cui i professionisti trovano clienti.

Abbiamo raccolto oltre €3mln da investitori istituzionali del calibro di Immobiliare.it, e angel investor di alto profilo, che lavorano in Google, Facebook, eBay, McKinsey e Unicredit: non abbiamo più i rischi tipici di una startup.

    Cerchiamo persone che vogliano costruire un colosso nel mondo del digital italiano che impatti fortemente la vita di tutti noi. Non è un lavoro tranquillo – ci mettiamo il cuore.

  • Sarai parte del team Technology, oggi composto da 8 persone ma che arriverà a 12 entro metà 2017.
  • Creerai un prodotto scalabile che sosterrà la fase di hyper-growth dell'azienda.
