UX Writer



Back Market is the world’s leading refurbished electronics marketplace with a team of 700 people, powering operations in 17 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 Product Design & Research team at Back Market is passionate about informing and building interfaces with the user as our focus. We zoom out to see the bigger picture, but also understand the devil is in the details.

We do this because we want to make the world a better place. After all, our goal is to offer more than just an alternative avenue to buy tech products, we want to do e-commerce differently. <3

As part of our world-class team of content designers, you’ll work closely with product managers, designers, research, brand teams, and translators to explore the full user journey from end to end, making data-driven decisions, and keeping the user in focus.

You’ll craft meticulous content for a variety of UI surfaces and other essential user touch points such as FAQ articles. You’ll eat, sleep, and drink our self-made glossary, taking every opportunity to instruct others on the correct usage thereof around the wider organization. And of course, you’ll partake in general word nerdery with us on the reg.

Your Missions, if You Accept it:

  • Craft compelling and delightfully written communication for various parts of our user experiences
  • Collaborate with our existing content designers and writers to help with proofreading and editing all sorts of copy on deadline
