Job Description

Back Market is the #1 marketplace for refurbished electronic devices in Europe and in the US, leading the way in a shift towards a circular economy, freeing the planet from electronic waste. We are proud to sabotage ‘new’ by connecting highly certified professionals to consumers who are looking for a more affordable, reliable and an ecological alternative to purchasing brand new products.  

Back Market is undergoing meteoric growth and has raised over 434M€ already! We have the objective of reaching 650 Back Makers (or Saboteurs) by the end of 2021!

You will be monitoring, and improving our quality metrics and processes as well as supporting our sellers to deliver best-in-class customer experience through impactful and transversal projects.

  • Improve or build the quality processes and metrics that will help monitor and enforce our quality standards 
  • Work closely with the Logistic Team to ensure we kick-off the projects that will help our sellers deliver the best Delivery Experience
  • Convert complex and deep analysis that you will lead into concrete and merchant-oriented actions with strong impact
  • Partner with account managers and supply operations to educate merchants both at onboarding and throughout their lifecycle on Back Market

  • You have 7+ years of experience with a proven track record of project management, driving high impact projects to completion
  • You have a strong knowledge of the e-commerce industry and have high customer experience expectations
  • You have experience in best-in-class customer service organizations
