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 on Italy, Switzerland and Austria: we wish to bring transparency and meritocracy in a market where they are severely lacking, and give work to the 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 product that will be used by millions.
We are a startup experiencing explosive growth: in March 2015 we launched with 2 people, 24 months later we reached 90 people. Average age is 27, our office is all open-space, and we strive di minimize bureaucracy: everyone has great responsibility and directly impacts 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.
We are looking for people who get excited at the prospect of building a huge company that will greatly affect the lives of millions. It’s not a quiet job – we put our hearts into it.
You will do everything. You will support the Operations Team in ensuring that our service works. You will ensure that demand and supply match, that customer satisfaction is high, that service level requirements are met. You will be solving problems that have never been solved before, so no one will be able to teach you; you will think, try, fail, repeat, and win.
Your job will transform several times. Initially you will be taking over simple tasks as a way to learn the ins and outs of ProntoPro.it; but quickly you will be expected to go beyond, look and what can be improved and bring your unique contribution to ProntoPro. We are looking for enterpreneurs who take real ownership, not people who are waiting for someone to tell them what to do.
If there is mutual desire to do so, the internship can transform into full-time employment. If we both wish to continue but you still need to graduate, we can find flexible solutions (part-time, or simply wait until graduation). There's so much to do, that every new hire is a win for the company.
