Job Description
Overview:

Backflip's mission is to reinvent resale by creating the easiest way to instantly liquidate your assets, starting with personal electronics. Consumers expect a one-click e-commerce buying experience, and we believe that the same simplicity should extend to disposing of those used items. We have created a marketplace that connects sellers with local professional resellers who can purchase their used products instantly, without all of the negotiations, fraud, or complexity of selling on current marketplaces.

As a Courier, you will be responsible for picking up electronics from our customers in the Austin area and delivering them to our facility in North Austin.  This is a brand new part of our business and an exciting time to come on as our first full time courier.  You will collaborate with our Operations and Logistics teams to ensure flawless and reliable deliveries and have the opportunity to shape how this role functions within our organization
