Swappie is changing the market in consumer electronics, starting with a marketplace for buying and selling refurbished smartphones.

Some potential projects you’ll tackle include tackling new payment and logistics providers to optimise order economics, rebuilding and A/B testing our sales journey with the customer at the centre, and diving deep into data engineering with our factory operations optimisation.
