Mobility means significant growth in transaction volume as cars will be traded more often during their lifetime – thereby driving strong demand for our solutions. We are growing fast and serve more than 3,500 customers from across the whole value chain including OEMs, dealerships as well as rental-, leasing-, platform- and mobility companies. AUTOproff was founded in 2013, became market leader in Denmark in 2016, and has since expanded across Northern Europe. We employ 100 enthusiastic professionals across our offices in Copenhagen (DK), Vejle (DK), Hamburg (DE), Malmoe (SE), Zwolle (NL) and Poznan (PL).
