About Us

ProntoPro.it is Italy's largest local service marketplace, expanding internationally. We help millions of users to find a local service professional: we cover 600+ services, ranging from wedding photographers to plumbers to guitar teachers. Within a few years, we expect that booking a plumber or a painter online will be as effortless as buying a book. 

We were born as a startup and even though we are experiencing an advanced phase of growth, the startup agility still guides our processes and decisions.  

We don’t like bureaucracy - data in hand, we prefer to act and experiment rather than procrastinate. It’s more efficient to make mistakes and learn from them rather than remain stable and wait unless we become perfect.

We are obsessed with learning - dedication, hardwork and openness to feedback are the clues to constant self-improvement and innovation. 

We are proud of our international and informal environment. Our employees come from all over the world - there are more than 16 different nationalities at ProntoPro, English is our first language. We work hard and have fun at work!

ProntoPro has always been supported by successful investors and entrepreneurs. Being a part of Immobiliare.it network lets us develop innovative solutions without typical start-up risks. 

For our headquarters in Milan, we are looking for people who get excited at the prospect of building a huge company that will greatly affect the lives of millions, as it already does in Italy.
