Back Market

Brooklyn, NY

Back Market revolutionizes the way people buy tech devices. We think it's time to offer a strong and mainstream alternative to new products by making used devices more appealing to potential customers and making them accessible as a strong alternate option.


Freeing the planet from electronic waste, leading the shift towards a circular economy, and building a global billion-dollar tech company are three solid reasons to wake up in the morning.   

Founded six years ago in Paris, Back Market is the world's first online marketplace dedicated to refurbished consumer electronics. Just as Airbnb brings together homeowners and travellers on one trusted platform to draw economic value from a previously underutilized asset — vacant living spaces — Back Market connects the best sellers of refurbished consumer electronics with consumers looking for a more affordable, reliable, and environmentally-friendly alternative to buying new. 


The Global Account Business Development team's mission is to grow the supply of products on our site Globally. We do this by bringing new sellers onto the platform and by growing existing sellers.
