Amsterdam is a green, park-like city that often feels like a village, but with everything a city needs. Our office is just a few steps away from the Amstel River, and next door to a major public transit station. The highway is not far and Schiphol Airport (the second largest in the EU) is ten minutes by car. Amsterdam is a sporty city, so you can get everywhere on a bike in no time. It’s a snap to bike to work, and we even have ‘eBay bikes’ that can be used by employees or guests to come and go.
