Full Time
Swappie is building a marketplace for easy and safe buying and selling of used smartphones. We buy phones from customers and companies, refurbish them in-house and sell them in top condition and with a proper warranty. By making it more accessible to buy refurbished electronics, we’re able to extend the phone’s life for up to four years and thus reduce the amount of electronic waste produced.

    • Talent sourcing
    • Developing our recruitment and interview processes
