DRIVERAMA SETS UP EUROPEAN HEADQUARTERS AND EMBARKS ON RECRUITMENT DRIVE AS IT EXPANDS TEAM

The new headquarters, situated in prime locations in Munich and Amsterdam, will house Driverama’s business development and project managers, as the Company rapidly expands ahead of the launch of its retail buying operations. The two locations were carefully selected to reflect Driverama’s sophisticated and market-leading tech proposition, with the new German office located in the centre of Munich, a city steeped in automotive history, and the office in Amsterdam located in a hub of similar-minded, disruptive tech start-ups and companies, including the Google HQ.

Driverama has built a world-class, experienced team of over 80 people and has plans to hire 200 more to scale the business and set up the launch of its retail operations in Germany. Taking a different approach to its competitors in the market, Driverama is looking to recruit for unique positions such as ‘Car Genius’, ‘Happiness Manager’ and ‘Delivery Buddy’, as it seeks to deliver a fairer, more transparent and effortless way of car buying and selling to millions of customers across the continent. 

Part of AURES Holdings, the largest independent used car retailer in Europe with more than €700m in revenue, €44m EBITDA and over 2.5 million customers served, Driverama is set to grow rapidly by leveraging AURES’ proven physical automotive infrastructure, unique data science capabilities and well-invested proprietary technology.

Stanislav Galik, Co-CEO, Driverama, said: “We are excited to unveil our new headquarters in Munich and Amsterdam, two very important cities for us as we prepare for the launch of our B2C operations, and another step in our plan to bring a truly unique pan-European borderless online used car retailing experience for the first time. Now that the headquarters are set up, we are looking to recruit top talent across our business – from IT and cutting edge data science roles to project managers and ‘Car Geniuses’ – who express the knowledge, aptitude and skill needed to provide our customers with a truly seamless end-to-end buying and selling experience.”

Recently appointed ‘Car Genius’, Johannes Pohle, explains what the new role entails: “As a Car Genius, my responsibility is simple; I deliver a friendly, professional service and take the best care of our customers from the moment they walk into a Driverama branch. It’s all about using my knowledge of Driverama’s vehicles and the car buying and selling process to make the whole customer journey as easy as possible. When a customer is selling their car to us, I ensure that all the paperwork is in order and the car is inspected before confirming the valuation. If a customer wants to buy a car from Driverama, I make sure they know everything there is to know about the vehicle they are buying or leasing, so they drive away with total peace of mind. With 7 years’ experience working in the motor retail industry, I am so excited to be joining Driverama and helping to deliver a fairer, faster and more transparent way of buying or selling a vehicle.”

Driverama is set to open its first retailing buying branch in Germany in July, more details of which will be announced in due course.
