Overview

Today Ricardo is the largest online marketplace in Switzerland with over 2.3 million listed items and approximately 4 million users. For more than 20 years we have been helping our users to give a second life to their idle items.  We are all driven by the desire to further develop our Swiss marketplace.

The support services (HR, finance, etc.) are usually cross-functional positions reporting to the group.

At Ricardo, the Engineering department is composed of 50 engineers located in three countries (Zug - Switzerland, Belgrade - Serbia, Sophia-Antipolis - France). The team counts 20 backend and 11 frontend engineers in total. Every two weeks, they meet to share best practices, help each other and improve their skills.

Besides engineers, the French team includes a product manager, a data engineer and a UX writer. 

Whether you work in France, Switzerland or Serbia, you belong to a single organization.

The project teams are distributed among the 3 countries. They are usually composed of a PM, a UX designer, as well as a backend, a frontend and a mobile engineer.
