Company Info

This opportunity is part of the Planet Expat Work Abroad Program, which aims to maximize your chances of joining one of the most innovative companies in Europe and Latin America. Here is more information about the hiring company:

We are on the path to becoming the global leader for refurbished electronics. We are a French startup that built and operates an international e-commerce platform for reconditioned electronic devices such as phone, tablets and computers. Our philosophy is to offer an alternative to the consumption of new products. We seek to have a positive impact on the environment by convincing clients that re-using repaired electronic devices helps avoid millions of tons of electronic waste every year. 

We started back in 2014 from Paris and spent the past few years replicating the success we encountered on the French market to other European countries such as Spain, Germany, Italy, Belgium. We are continuing our expansion with new European countries (the Netherlands, Poland, UK) and non-European countries such as the US and China. 

We have been growing at a double-digit rate on a monthly basis during our first couple of years of existence and have completed 3 investment rounds in 2015-2017, and raised 41 million euros in early 2018. Our turnover in 2017 was 100 million euros. Our international team is made of 130 members, and we plan to grow to 180 people by the end of 2018.

Our company acts as an intermediary between factories that refurbish used products and final consumers. Through our website, our users can acquire guaranteed tech equipment at a much lower price compared to retail, with at least 6 months of warranty. Our business model is based on a commission on each transaction.
