Allegro to boost operations in northern Poland

Allegro, Poland’s most popular e-commerce platform, plans to expand in the Tricity of Gdańsk, Sopot and Gdynia, hiring 1,500 people there and in other regions of the country.

We are confident that the Tricity will become one of the main centres of the company in the next few years,” says Mieczysław Struk, Marshal of the Pomeranian Voivodeship.

On one hand, this is due to the hospitable climate of Pomerania, on the other hand, it allows you to build completely new technological solutions, based on the exchange of knowledge and a strong IT community in Tricity,” Struk says.

As the most recognisable e-commerce brand and the largest entity operating in the non-food retail industry in Poland in terms of GMV, Allegro.pl is also one of the 10 largest e-commerce portals in the world and one of the 100 largest internet portals in the world in terms of monthly number of visits. The platform attracts an average of 21 million internet users per month, which corresponds to 66% of Polish citizens aged 16 or more and 78% of all Internet users in Poland.

Allegro currently operates in six locations: Warsaw, Kraków, Toruń, Poznań and logistics centres in Błonie and Adamów near Warsaw. These will be joined by Katowice, Łódź, Gdańsk, Lublin and Wrocław and the first recruits are already on their way, initially in the field of technology.

Allegro is looking for new software developers, product managers, data analysts and other specialists, who will co-create and develop our platform,” says Marcin Gruszka, Head of Communications at Allegro.

The number of offers available on the platform increased year-on-year by about 50%, and in the third quarter of this year for the first time exceeded 250 million. Allegro aims to develop new services such as the fintech Allegro Pay, Allegro Business platform and local auction platform Allegro Lokalnie.

Allegro operates the leading marketplace trading platform in Poland,  Allegro.pl, and the price comparison engine Ceneo.pl.

It’s always value added, when we welcome such a renowned end customer brand investing here in the BSS dimension,” says Marcin Grzegory, Deputy Director, Invest in Pomerania.
