New Categories Manager H/F

  • Type de contrat : CDI
  • Lieu : Ile De France, France (75019)

À propos

Founded in November 2014, Back Market is the number one European (and soon global) marketplace specializing in the sale of fully refurbished tech devices.

Their concept is simple but radical. By helping their customers discover and purchase the highest quality refurbished electronics they are creating an alternative to the mainstream behavior of always purchasing new products. Prolonging the lives of these devices has a significant global impact. E-Waste accounts for 70% of all our toxic waste! By prolonging the lives of kitchen appliances, computers, mobile devices and more, they have already saved 3,766 tonnes of e.waste since 2014 💪

Descriptif du poste

With an estimated $80bn market, the refurbished grey, brown and white goods represent a huge growth opportunity for Back Market, making even more mainstream the refurbished tech products consumption.
Yet, product categories other than smartphones – Other Electronics & Appliances – are not yet mature and the corresponding refurbished offer is below smartphones standards, requiring a specific focus to increase its attractiveness for customers. Done right, this segment represents a huge growth opportunity.
