eBay Classifieds Denmark

In Denmark, we operate three market-leading online platforms. As the country’s number one horizontal classifieds site, DBA is where millions of Danes come to buy, sell and connect. Our other leading marketplace is Bilbasen, the number one destination to buy and sell cars. Bilinfo, our third platform, is the leading tool for automotive dealers to manage their online advertising. Our sites handle over 2 million unique visitors a month, making us one of the largest online destinations in Denmark.

We have a team of over 100 highly committed employees in two locations, Aarhus and Copenhagen. We are an independently operating technology business, meaning that all functions are represented: Product and Technology, Marketing, Sales, Customer Operations, Finance and Legal. Our culture is one of high dedication and quality, while being informal and not taking ourselves too seriously.

In summer 2020, the Schibsted Media Group based in Oslo agreed to purchase eBay’s Danish Classifieds business. We expect this deal to close in early 2021. The upcoming period will therefore be an exciting and critical time for our organization, where we expect to join a new Nordic company, and will need to be clearly attuned to the needs of our people.
