Bonjour from France! A Look Inside the Criteo Paris Office

 

At Criteo, our offices are a reflection not only of our company values but also of the culture and community in which each office is based! Up this week, the Criteo Paris office – our headquarters no less, located in the heart of the city’s right bank with art and airy architecture inside and stunning views all around.

Built in a Franck Hammoutène-designed building, the building Criteo Paris calls home used to be four old buildings joined together to make up warehouses for the storied department store Galeries Lafayette, just 700 meters away. Today, Criteo Paris spans 20,000 square meters and eight floors. At the top you’ll find the “terrasse” or rooftop, perhaps one of Criteo Paris’ best assets, with stunning 360-degree views of some of the city’s best assets.

Look southeast, and voila, the Eiffel Tower. Look north and you’ll see the dome of the Sacré-Coeur Basilica atop Montmarte. When the sun is shining and the weather mild, the Terrasse is the perfect spot for a quick meeting (see above) or a short break on a bean bag. During the summers, an additional lunch venue opens up and socials and parties are thrown on repeat against the backdrop of stunning views.

The views at night are no less spectacular:

But where does that actual work happen?

Well, oftentimes, in one of many beautifully appointed cafeterias and designated hangout spaces on each floor. Each hangout space is inspired by something different. There’s a spot for every aesthetic:

A coffee shop…

And finally there’s the main cafeteria, a future-looking foodie’s dream and airy space where each day, Criteos can enjoy freshly made gourmet dishes, a healthy salad bar, and more decadent options like burgers, fries, and pasta.

Some additional perks? Criteo Paris offers a concierge where employees can arrange for dry cleaning or even hire a baby sitter, and weekly visits by a hairdresser and aesthetician, who provide haircuts or lunch facials for our self-care loving Criteos.

Pas mal, as the French say. Pas mal.
