Working at Back Market is an everyday mission, challenging and exciting. We’re looking for smart people who can help us create new solutions to develop ourselves.

We truly think that the world needs more companies like us; we’re not only trying to show the world that other ways of consumption are possible but we’re also fighting against planned obsolescence by giving second life to electronics and reducing waste. We dare to create and follow our dreams, building solutions to make one of the greenest marketplace to rise up.

We’re growing up amazingly fast, and we want to keep it that way. As a member of the BOT, you’ll be in charge of building the best experience possible for our customers and merchants. You will build the growth by coding, reviewing, learning and sharing your knowledge with others.
