BackMarket is the number one European (and soon global) marketplace specializing in the sale of fully refurbished tech devices.

Job Description

Founded in 2014, BackMarket is the first online marketplace dedicated exclusively to refurbished electronic devices. With 158M€ raised already, we are sabotaging ‘new’ by connecting highly selected certified professionals to consumers who are looking for a more affordable, reliable and ecological alternative to purchasing brand new products.

At Back Market, our Seller Success Managers are pivotal to our marketplace’s success. You will be a key member of our fast-growing and high-performing Seller Success team, and will act as the go-to resource for our valued sellers. You will be able to contribute to the overall business by enabling and supporting the growth and retention of key sellers.  In this role, your main priorities center on harmonizing the two most critical areas of seller performance on Back Market: Sales and Quality.

On the Sales side, you will work with your sellers to grow their sales by skilfully identifying opportunities to grow and diversify listings, procure supply, improve pricing strategy, capitalize on product/category trends, etc.

On the Quality side, you will educate and inform your sellers on the relevance and relationship of specific quality metrics to sales performance, develop and execute strategic action plans to tackle areas for improvement, expertly demonstrate the ROI to your sellers with pointed progress updates and recommendations, etc.

These functions work hand-in-hand and interdependently, and the successful Seller Success Manager will locate that synergy for each seller account, will effectively articulate the comprehensive value of both, and will collaborate and consult toward long-term and lasting success on both fronts
