Job description

Back Market is the world’s leading refurbished electronics marketplace with a team of more than 650, powering operations in 16 countries (and counting!).

Back Market is undergoing meteoric growth and has raised $884 million, with a valuation of $5.7 billion.

Buyback enables customers to sell their old devices to our refurbishers. This is great for the consumer who is able to reclaim some cash for their old device and prevent the accumulation of e-waste in our landfills.
