This is Shpock

Shpock is a mobile marketplace that brings millions of private buyers and sellers and local businesses together. The categories range from electronics, fashion and furniture to specialised interests such as cars and property.

Success story made in Austria

Launched in autumn 2012, Shpock (short for “SHop in your POCKet) climbed the app store download charts within a couple of months. Today it is one of the biggest mobile marketplaces in Europe.

Shpock has more than 10 million active users and over 2 billion page impressions. These numbers and regular #1 rankings in the App & Google Play Store in three countries (Germany, UK, Austria) make Shpock one of Europe’s most popular shopping apps. Behind the success of the app stands a team of over 100 highly motivated people from many different nationalities. Shpock has received two accolades from tech industry leaders: The “Best of 2017” award in the field of “Sustainability” from Apple and the “Android Excellence App of 2018” in the Google Play Store.

Buying and selling

Thanks to the location-based display of items and the big images, shopping on Shpock feels like a digital stroll through your neighbourhood. The offer ranges from no longer used vintage bikes and fashion treasures, tablets and smartphones to secondhand furniture.

State-of-the-art Development

Our international developer team makes sure that the app and website are running smoothly and the buying and selling experience is constantly improved. The huge amount of users generates more than 100 million API requests per day, which requires an extremely high performing IT infrastructure. Shpock offers exciting challenges in all areas of software development: iOS, Android, web, testing, fullstack/backend, IT ops, data warehouse, etc. We are guided by the latest technology and are occupying ourselves intensely with strategically important topics such as machine learning and automation.

Professional business partner

Shpock has also set foot in the B2B market. Local businesses can connect with millions of potential buyers with their own “virtual shop window”. Furthermore, there are tailor-made solutions for selected verticals, such as motors. Being a pioneer in a mobile-first world, we have also acquired renown in the ad market.

Our Values

Go above and beyond.

At Shpock, the sky's the limit. Dare to think big. Build something truly great for our users and aim to shape yourself, Shpock and the industry at large.

Get stuff done.

Take ownership and look beyond your own desk. If you don’t like the status quo, change it. We trust you to do your job, because you are great at what you do.

Focus.

Do a few things really well, not ten things averagely. We prioritize, stick to it and communicate concisely.

Show respect and build relationships.

No matter who you are or where you come from, you are welcome. We embrace our differences. We believe in having good laughs and great times together. We build lasting relationships - be it with a teammate, a mentor or even your best friend.

Care for each other.

We win together and lose together because we are one team. There are no assholes at Shpock, there is no room for egos. Be kind. Lift yourself up by lifting others up. Lend a helping hand when needed - cross-team and cross-country.

Learn.

Try stuff, analyse the data, try again. Be agile, embrace change. Learn from your peers. Take the opportunity to grow individually and as a team.

Be transparent.

Be open about what you do and why you do it. Share your learnings cross-team. Say it like it is. Trust others to do the same.
