About Peerby
We are a young start-up growing fast. Peerby is a platform and an app that allows you to borrow the things you need from your neighbors. We believe that borrowing from your neighbours is good for you, good for your neighborhood and for the environment.

Launched in 2012 in Amsterdam, we are on a mission to enable people all over the world to launch their own sharing community. Our team is growing rapidly and we are very proud to be the only working borrowing platform in the world.

What we can offer you
We can offer you a place in a fast growing team and a lot of freedom and responsibility in a dynamic environment. Not one of those dynamic environments you read about in other vacancies, but for real. Working in ‘startup mode’ can be challenging but is for sure rewarding and exciting. You’ll be working directly with the management team and your impact will be high. You will be working from one of the most beautiful offices of Amsterdam (17th century original ‘Style room’) in the ‘golden corner’ at the Prinsengracht. We are in the same building as Rockstart Accelerator, where you can fully surrender to the startup vibes and attend drinks, meetups and other events with numerous startups. Are you excited about working on a socially and technically disruptive product and believe that the sharing economy is here to stay? Join the team! Drop me a line and come and have coffee with us at our head quarter.
Looking forward to welcome you to our team!
