Our team members enjoy a challenging environment that places the highest value on innovation, accountability and playing to win.

Gumtree was founded in London in 2000 to help Aussies, Kiwis and South Africans find a place to live, a job, and everything they needed to settle in to the city. It quickly gathered speed, and grew to take over the city in no time.

In 2005, Gumtree became part of the eBay Classifieds Group. And today, the Gumtree brand is the leading classifieds site in the U.K., Australia, South Africa and Singapore. We’re also in Ireland and Poland – a truly global success story.

The Gumtree spirit remains cheerfully local, easy and friendly, and we bring together millions of buyer and sellers to create thousands of success stories every day.
