    Sotheby’s has been uniting collectors with world-class works of art since 1744. Today, Sotheby’s remains synonymous with innovation, with a global network of over 1500 employees located in 80 offices in 40 countries around the globe. In addition to worldwide auctions, we offer Sotheby’s Financial Services, the only full-service art financing company. Sotheby’s also presents private sale opportunities in 70+ categories, including S|2, the gallery arm of Global Fine Art Division, and three retail businesses: Sotheby’s Wine, Sotheby’s Diamonds, and Sotheby’s Home.

    While the Global Company has a long, nearly 300-year history, we are a dynamic, 21st century organization committed to innovation and evolution. In addition to our Global Fine Art division, we have a Global Luxury Division dedicated to selling watches, jewelry, wine, books, lifestyle objects and design, and an expanding e-commerce business and premiere marketplace for design and luxury items

    Sotheby’s was the first in the industry to focus on data and advanced technologies, including artificial intelligence and machine learning, through strategic acquisitions and hires.

    Sotheby’s is committed to technology in all aspects of our business to drive innovation and improve both internal processes and the client experience. Because of this, our product team has the unique opportunity of using modern technology and best practices to change the way the consumer engages with the brand, creating a low-touch, unified, and user-centric consignment experience.

    In addition, at Sotheby’s we’re using data to drive the way business decisions are made in the art and luxury commerce space. Solving a business case that hasn’t been very well tackled in the art auction world as of yet (recommendations, personalization). This enables us to efficiently scale our core businesses for our clients.
