Freeing the planet from electronic waste, leading the shift towards a circular economy, and building a billion-dollar tech company are three solid reasons to wake up in the morning.
Recognized by Fast Company as one of the World’s most innovative companies, Back Market is the first online marketplace dedicated exclusively to professionally-reconditioned devices. Similar to how Airbnb aggregates homeowners and travelers on one trusted platform to draw economic value from a previously underutilized asset — vacant living spaces — Back Market connects certified professionals specializing in the refurbishing and resale of used electronics with consumers looking for a more affordable, reliable, and environmentally-friendly alternative to buying new.
The supply Department’s mission is to source great products that our customers want, working with thousands of refurbishers selling on Backmarket.com.

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 skillfully 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.
