At Swappie we are on a mission to make refurbished electronics mainstream. First in Europe, and then in the rest of the world.
We bring the circular economy to the masses by buying phones from customers and companies, checking and repairing them in-house, and selling them in top condition with a proper warranty directly on our website. By making refurbished electronics more accessible, we provide access to premium technology to many that couldn’t previously afford it, are able to extend a phone’s lifecycle, and reduce the amount of waste produced. Since launching in Finland in 2016, we have expanded to 15 countries across Europe, increased our headcount to over 900, and raised funding from some of the most prestigious investors.
We rigorously follow a customer-centered approach, and place a great emphasis on openness and learning from every interaction. Our core values are endless optimism, highest standards, customer focus, and connect. They guide us in the decisions and actions we take every day. Our work environment will appeal to builders and entrepreneurial spirits with diverse backgrounds keen to build Europe’s next tech success story while committing to the fight against climate change. Joining us is a unique opportunity to make a significant impact on a high-growth company that is in the early stages of its success story.
At the same time as Swappie’s headcount has tripled from last year’s October to today from circa 300 to almost 900 our incredibly efficient and talented IT team has also tripled in size from one to three. Yes, you heard it right! When a team of this size performs extremely well in a business of this scale, it tells its own story about the talent we have in the IT team and also about the tech skills and attitude of our employees who solve their own and their colleagues’ IT puzzles at the flick of a switch.
But as we continue on our strong growth trajectory we could need a pair of extra hands of an experienced IT Service Administrator to build the IT infrastructure and to contribute to a variety of intriguing projects to serve the business. Are you up for challenging yourself in a unique way in a rapidly growing tech company in a role with lots of freedom?
