We are acting today

To create the best place to work in every country where we operate

More than 19,000 people have joined our teams in 2021 to share a co- working environment based on trust, respect, ethical behavior, and focus on the development of everybody’s tasks and careers. Today, more than 29,000 professionals committed to democratizing commerce and financial services work together at MELI to improve the lives of Latin American citizens and entrepreneurs.

In line with MELI DNA, we are always looking for people who challenge themselves to improve, are not afraid to fail, will face the unknown, and are willing to learn and move forward, motivated by an entrepreneurial attitude.

We foster an inclusive and diverse workplace in which everyone feels total freedom of identity to be who they are, and where everyone can reach their full potential. Based on these principles, last year we were ranked as the fourth best place to work in Latin America, and the only Latin American company among the top ten businesses included in the Great Place to Work global ranking. And we keep on moving to the top!

MELI DNA Our culture and principles are at the heart of everything we do:

  • We create value for our users.
  • We take risks as entrepreneurs.
  • We execute with excellence.
  • We are in a permanent beta state.
  • We compete as a team to win.
  • We give our best and have fun.

“I work at the check-in area: every product delivered by sellers is inspected to ensure it is in good condition. Then, we scan it to upload it to the Mercado Libre platform.”
