About

Fondée en Novembre 2014, Back Market est la première place de marché européenne (et bientôt mondiale) exclusivement dédiée à la vente de produits électriques & électroniques entièrement remis à neuf.

Notre mission est simple : construire une alternative grand public à l'achat d'appareils électriques et électroniques neufs. Et lutter ainsi contre la production exponentielle de déchets électroniques et contre l'obsolescence programmée.

Ce que l'on recherche au sein de Back Market? Une bonne dose d'humour, du respect et de la bienveillance, un amour pour les lapins (mais pas que), un peu de zèle et une réelle expertise dans ton domaine 💪 !
