Shpock awarded by Apple and Google

Successful start to 2018 for marketplace app

Two accolades from tech industry leaders: Shpock is celebrating at the turn of the year after winning awards from both Google and Apple, capping off another twelve months for the company.

As a successful year for the boot sale app ends, another one begins. Tech giant Apple has chosen Shpock at the end of the year for its ‘Best of 2017’ award in the field of "Sustainability", thus crowning an eventful year with an international award. Kicking off 2018, Shpock has been handed another award; an Android Excellence App of 2018 in the Google Play Store from Google. Only apps and games of the highest quality, technical perfection and highest usability are awarded in this category.

"With awards from the world's largest players in this industry, we can carry this momentum into an exciting new year", said CEO Bernhard Baumann. “This makes us one of the international pioneers in the app business.”

2018: Growth and new ad formats

The main reason for the success story of Shpock is a team of 150 people from 30 different nations. "Without our team, we would not be where we are today. In order to proceed this way, we're always looking for motivated talented people with dedication and the right team spirit," says Baumann. Currently there are more than 40 open positions available on Shpock's jobs page (

In addition to the team growth, the main focus for 2018 is on "further developing the mobile marketplace experience to convince even more users of Shpock, and at the same time we will implement even more new advertising formats to meet the needs of our advertising partners," says Shpock's CEO.
