About OpenSooqAbout OpenSooqAbout OpenSooq

We are driven by five guiding principles

  • Keeping it local

    While our platform is available in 20 countries, we know that marketplaces only flourish when we understand and serve the local community - at the level of each country, city and sometimes neighborhood. We are focused on hiring local employees and empowering them to serve their own communities.

  • Innovation in product and technology

    We are passionate about providing an intuitive and user-friendly experience driven by technology. We are proud of what we have achieved, but we know that this is an on-going process driven by feedback from our users and partners. We want OpenSooq to be easy-to-use by everyone, without compromising on our best-in-class product offering. This is our promise to every one of our users.

  • Focusing on safety and security

    We are committed to providing a safe and secure platform for our users. We know that trust is essential for the success of any marketplace, and we have worked hard over many years to gain our users’ trust and will continue to do so.

  • Supporting economic growth

    We believe that we can be an engine for economic growth in the communities we serve, by enabling everyone to buy, sell and transact from the comfort of their home or workplace. The MENA region has exceptionally strong fundamentals for growth in the classifieds and marketplaces business - as a home-grown business, we know we can make a difference.

  • Giving back

    We know that we are a product of the communities we serve. Through our special outreach programs and partnerships with charitable organizations, we try to improve the lives of the people around us and beyond.
