We are looking for a manager to lead the Supply data team (data engineers and analytics engineers) and develop this scope from end to end. The supply data scope includes all data (from collecting to serving the data to internal and external stakeholders like our sellers) linked to the Back Market catalog, sellers’ performance and the pricing of our offer.
