Driverama has unveiled its new headquarters in Germany and the Netherlands following the company’s launch earlier this year.
The new headquarters, situated in Munich and Amsterdam, will house Driverama’s business development and project managers, as the company looks to rapidly expand ahead of the launch of its retail buying operations.
Following the move to the new HQs, the business has plans to add 200 new staff to the current 80-strong team.
Stanislav Galik, co-chief executive of 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.”
Part of used car retailer Aures holdings, Driverama will initially launch out of Germany in July with a range of over 5,000 cars, before expanding into 11 other countries by 2025.
Aures has channelled significant investment into Driverama, contributing €75m to the tech platform and €32.5m in the broader company. In hopes of becoming the principal European online used car retailer by 2025, a further €100m of investment is planned over the next year in order to bolster the rollout, with an additional €400m in follow-up investment.
Driverama will benefit from Aures Network of 47 sites and preparation centres across Europe. With over €700m in revenue, and managing more than €2.5m customers, Aures boasts 30 years’ experience of cars.
Over the next two years, Driverama aims to enable customers to buy and sell cars anywhere in Europe through live data and pricing differences from country to country.
