Job Description

Description

We are currently working with a green mission-led start-up with currently a team of 30 brilliant people.

Its mission is to change the way we all use technology as everyday thousands of forgotten tech devices waste potential, lose value and add pressure on the planet. The world currently generates 50 million tonnes of e-waste every year and that figure is set to double by 2050.

They want to allow everyone to give old tech a new life while saving the environment by reducing e-waste going into landfills and the CO2 emissions. You can now easily sell, recycle and trade in your old tech, through our self-service machines (Pods).

They have Series A private equity funding and contracts with national retailers, Morrisons & Co-Op.

They are really proud of the astonishing results we have achieved so far but this is just the beginning! With an exciting future ahead there wouldn’t be a better time to join them as they have great projects for the future and they are really determined to succeed! They want someone who shares their values, who breaths their culture, and who is willing to leave a mark on a more sustainable future.

Come and join their vibrant and passionate team who are looking to transform the world of consumer electronics: Let’s make the difference together!
