Operations Manager Intern (BuyBack)

Back Market


Back Market is the world’s leading refurbished electronics marketplace with a team of 650 people, powering operations in 21 countries (and counting!).

Named one of the World’s Most Innovative Companies by Fast Company in 2019 and again in 2021, our mission is simple: empowering people to consume tech sustainably by offering folks a high quality, accessible, and more eco-friendly alternative to buying new electronics. Why? Refurbished tech helps lower our collective environmental impact. We have indeed contributed to avoid the production of more than 1,000,000 tons of CO2e worldwide since our launch in 2014.

Be part of an exciting and growing international adventure that will change the way the world consumes tech.

The Buyback team enables customers to sell their old devices to our refurbishers. This is great for the consumer who can reclaim some cash for their old device and prevent the accumulation of e-waste in our landfills. BuyBack is also a key pillar for Back Market as it allows us to facilitate the sourcing of supplies to our refurbishers who will then repair those devices and resell them on our site.

As our Operations Manager Intern within the BuyBack team, you will be exposed to a large variety of business topics (payment, logistics, customer care, sellers onboarding…). You will have daily interactions with members of the BuyBack team and many other Back Makers to lead your projects to success and you’ll take part in and contribute to all team meetings and reviews.

Your Missions, if You Accept it:

  • Run sellers’ processes that help monitor and improve the Buyback performance
  • Run operational routines which are key to ensure a smooth seller experience while ensuring their good financials & good quality of service
  • Perform analysis to identify issues on sellers’ performance and processes and deliver action plans to address them
  • Contribute to designing tools and processes to support our sellers in improving their performance
  • Build resources to support the deployment of these actions to account managers and foster the adoption
