Vinted continues its expansion: opening an office in Kaunas, where over 100 employees are now working

Vinted, Europe's largest peer-to-peer online marketplace for second-hand fashion, is expanding, and has recently opened an office in Kaunas, Lithuania, with over 100 employees now working there. 

Vinted is currently looking for developers (backend, web, software, mobile, data), engineers, data scientists and team leaders to join their teams in the new Kaunas office.  

The new office in Kaunas follows the same hybrid working model as the rest of Vinted’s locations, which recommends that employees come into the office a couple of times a week. They’re also allowed to work up to 90 days a year in other countries, 21 of which can be spent outside the EU. 

"Because we’re a hybrid company, we’ve been able to employ people based in Kaunas prior to having an office space there, but the newly-opened location will better meet our current and future colleagues’ needs: providing them with modern and comfortable workspaces, plenty of areas to meet up and spend time together, and a sense of community."

An office in Kaunas can also contribute to the development of technology companies in the city. With over 100 of our employees based in Kaunas, we can see that the city is home to a number of excellent professionals who can make a significant contribution to Vinted's mission and the solutions used by tens of millions of members of the international community. Opportunities to work with an audience of this size are really quite rare in our market. Ieva Kuniejūtė,Director of Tech Talent Acquisition at Vinted

"We’re currently looking for at least a couple of dozen more colleagues in Kaunas, so we’re delighted that more and more talented people in tech who are living in this city are able to get involved with Vinted's products and their development," says Ieva Kuniejūtė, Director of Tech Talent Acquisition at Vinted.

Vinted's new office is located in the Drobės Fabrikas business centre – a 20,000 m²  modern renovated interwar architectural complex in the Šančiai district – which is also home to several other growing technology companies and start-ups. Vinted is currently leasing a 657 m² space in the newly-opened business complex, which can accommodate up to 100 employees at a time.

We’ve set up the new Vinted office in the historic Drobės Fabrikas building. This architectural gem has been given a new lease of life, and has been transformed into a space that is perfectly in line with Vinted's office standards.Ieva Užkurnienė, Workplace Experience Lead at Vinted.

"We were impressed by the atmosphere here; the perfect blend of history and dynamic workspaces that will most definitely contribute to an exceptional employee experience. When we choose a new location, we try to think about how it will complement our employees' routine, and the experience it will provide. We believe that the new office in Kaunas will provide inspiration and additional capacity for our growing team in the city," says Ieva Užkurnienė, Workplace Experience Lead at Vinted.

The Drobės Fabrikas team has furnished the historic premises in an industrial style, with the companies and communities that will be housed there in mind.

“We wanted the premises to fit the mindset and needs of those who work there. So when renovating, our focus was on the efficient use of space.The  Drobės Fabrikas premises are not only for business use, but can also be hired out for a wide range of gatherings and events. Our aim was to create a comfortable workspace where communities with shared principles of community, sustainability, and common good can come together. We know that these aspects are important to Vinted, so we’re happy that they've chosen our premises in Kaunas for their expansion and joined the other technology companies based here," - says Rima Čivaitė, Project Manager at Drobės Fabrikas.
