Did you jailbreak your smartphone when you studied abroad? Are you the friend everyone reaches out to when something goes wrong with their laptop? Are you passionate about sustainability in tech and beyond? 

Back Market is the leading marketplace for renewed devices — from smartphones to laptops to gaming consoles — and they care about the environmental impact of tech. So, we decided to support Back Market in the change of the tech game, making it easy and legitimate to buy pre-owned tech, at a price new simply can’t beat. They do this by connecting the dots between certified experts who specialize in refurbishing tech, and folks looking for affordable, reliable, and planet-friendly alternatives to buying new.

Through both digital and in-person outreach, our Brand Ambassadors will use their insight and creativity to create experiences for their fellow college students while raising our brand awareness.
