Company mission and vision
Everything you own has value - even old socks. Stuffstr lets you capture the value of your used stuff, regardless of condition. We partner with retailers to buy back everything you’re done using, so it can go on to lead a happy, productive next life.
Stuffstr is built on a vision of “No Unused Stuff”, and we go the extra mile to make it super easy. No listings, no shipping, no hassle: just the instant gratification of knowing you made some money and helped save the planet at the same time.
Stuffstr recently completed a successful pilot with John Lewis, and we’re growing our software and physical logistics capabilities to support more volume and more partners in more locations.
To enable that growth, we are hiring an experienced senior developer to be the core of our Londonbased development organization.
