Posted on Saturday, August 26, 2023

Do you want to use your passion and talent to make consumption more sustainable?

Since 2017, we saved over 100,000,000 kg of CO2 by selling refurbished equipment, while 3.5 million trees have been planted, mainly with our partner, the NGO Eden Reforestation.

We are passionate about sustainability and we are the fastest growing marketplace for refurbished products in Europe.

We founded our company in February 2017 and grew to more than 300 employees in the last five years and already expanded from Germany and Austria to Italy, Ireland, Sweden, Denmark and further European countries. Along the way we won several awards, completed two large funding rounds and have already sold hundreds of thousands of products, which makes us one of the fastest growing startups in Europe right now. Our team has extensive international experience in the refurbishment industry, how to create a brand and how to scale a marketplace.

For our Finance team, we are looking for an outstanding Risk Manager who will be leading our internal control systems and processes as well as the risk management function of our e-commerce platform. This includes identifying, assessing, and mitigating risks to the company's financial, operational, and reputational health.
