Top Tips to Beautifying your Garden this Christmas
- 18 December, 2020
A beautiful garden is one of the most welcoming things every home can boast of and if you do not have one,…
The Jumia House team is celebrating its six month anniversary this month! To mark the occasion, let’s take a look back on how much we’ve grown.
In October 2013, we started with just a small core team based at our headquarters in Berlin. Since then, we’ve expanded to become a global network spread across 22 countries in Africa, Asia and South America. And we have further expansions planned for the coming months.
Over 250,000 properties are now listed worldwide on our websites. To give you an idea of the rate of growth, we had 100,000 property listings in February – effectively doubling in size in two months.
We’ve also been singled out as being at the forefront of changing the culture of the tech industry. A traditionally male-dominated industry, Jumia House stands out from the crowd with a 50% female workforce at our Berlin HQ, plus several women in high level positions across the world.
It’s no surprise really that our growth has been so fast paced. Demand for online property websites like ours is increasing in emerging markets, including Ghana, as more and more people switch online to look for a new home to buy or rent.
As our global co-founder Paul Philipp Hermann recently said: “Our ultimate goal is to be the market leader everywhere that we operate and I believe that our constant investment in our product will help that come to fruition. We want everyone – whether its people looking to buy, a landlord looking to rent, or a business looking for new premises – to be able to say ‘we found it on Jumia House’.”
Here’s to another six even more successful months!
