Second Trend is building a community around a marketplace to inspire and empower consumers to think secondhand first. We are looking for passionate people that wants to help drive the secondhand agenda and join a team on a journey to build an awesome tech company, based in a marketplace for buying and selling secondhand lifestyle goods.
We are currently looking for inspiring people to both help us improve the platform as well as people wanting to build a secondhand community. You will join a journey to grow and push the recycling agenda, and your role will be to help us build and nurture a community of secondhand enthusiasts.
The team has already built a foundation with a great app and experience, allowing its community to buy and sell its items. The next step of the journey is growing our community of second-hand enthusiasts, defining our brand, and driving the recycling agenda. We are looking for someone to share that journey with us, ideally someone with passion and drive for leading a team and passion for secondhand. The candidate should be eager to take responsibility in growing the platform and helping run the company, and will partake in the ownership of the company.
The position is initially broad, as it will be tailored to the candidate, and quickly develop to fit with the journey. Some of the overall responsibilities related to the position does however include:
Guide the strategic direction for the company on business matters such as go-to-market strategy, marketing, pricing, and brand.
Define the vision for the company’s brand and execute on achieving that vision, through marketing, content, PR, and more.
Explore new channels for marketing and sales, including engaging in dialogues with key players in the industry such as secondhand outlets, online sellers and influencers.
Analyze current marketing channels and help set the general direction for campaigns, SEO, and optimizing user acquisition.
Lead the marketing and design team in Copenhagen, including defining resource requirement, leading team resources and efforts.
The role will initially include tasks related to the above and will naturally develop to fit best with the candidate. As such, we expect the role to develop with the key competencies of the candidate and expect to supplement with additional resources where needed.
