A piece of the moon, a complete dinosaur skeleton, the Pope's hat, the world's smallest book - at Catawiki, we come across exceptional objects such as these every day.
Catawiki is the leading online marketplace to buy and sell special objects. We offer over 75,000 special objects in auction every week — each reviewed and selected by one of Catawiki’s hundreds of in-house experts specialised in Art, Design, Jewellery, Fashion, Classic Cars, Collectables and many more.
We've sold 10 million unique items to date and it’s our mission to become the world’s most popular auction destination for special objects.
We’re an innovative, pioneering and fast-growing scale-up. If you think you can make a difference to our team, go ahead and apply.
As an Expert on Vintage & Contemporary Lighting in the Interiors team, you will be closely involved with evaluating and arranging lots submitted by our users. In collaboration with other lighting experts and thereby using your expert knowledge of vintage and contemporary lighting from all over the globe, you will be responsible for creating attractive auctions every week. Catawiki strives to keep user transactions as transparent and fair as possible, and your expertise and experience play a large part in maintaining this standard; you know better than anyone what items are of interest to our users.
You will review lot titles, descriptions, lot pictures, and provide users with an estimated value based on this information. If you need to reject a submission, you do so in a professional and courteous manner. Your efforts result in exceptional auctions that bidders will find irresistible.
Aside from evaluating lots submitted by our users and compiling auctions together with your colleagues, you are also responsible together with the sales team for developing the seller base of the lighting auctions. You will proactively review seller segments, assist team members in onboarding high potential leads and upselling existing sellers, making use of your extensive network of potential sellers, buyers, and experts.
The role can be based in Germany, France, Italy, or other European countries with a work from home arrangement.
This is your chance to become part of a fast but sustainable growing tech company! You will have an exciting role in a young, fast-growing, dynamic & international organisation.

Catawiki’s eclectic team represents an international and intergenerational mix of people from different professional and cultural backgrounds.

Catawiki stands with Ukraine and encourages people displaced by the current conflict to apply. In addition to the several initiatives we’ve launched, we’re open to ideas on ways we can continue to support the humanitarian effort.
We’ve embraced an activity-based way of working, meaning our team can choose how they split their work week between home and the office, in line with our remote framework and guidelines. In locations where we have physical offices, most employees enjoy two days at the office to connect and collaborate with each other.
Our experts and sales staff in local markets work 100% remotely – in most cases from home. Some key positions are hired remotely, while we also offer relocation services for colleagues needing to be closer to the office.
If you’re excited about this role but your past experience doesn’t align perfectly with every qualification in the job description, we encourage you to apply anyways. You may be just the right candidate for this or other roles.
We’re continually incorporating hybrid elements, while employees choose how they split their work between the office and home.
We strive to be an employer where your impact is meaningful, visible and rewarded.
