RESPONSIBLE is building technology to enable brands to offer circularity and keep garments out of the landfill.
We build products that are customer-facing, brand-facing, and at the infrastructure level. This includes apps people use to send back items (Buy Backs), e-commerce and retail store integrations to enable credits for returned items, private and public APIs, etc.
Our goal is to grow the adoption of circularity in the fashion industry by making it turn-key for brands. Recommerce today is like e-commerce was in the early-2000's are there are many interesting challenges to solve.
This role is for a Team Lead interested in building software to solve those problems, change the fashion industry, and help the environment.
RESPONSIBLE works with premium brands to enable their customers to return items for store credit and give them a second life. We are making circularity as turn-key as e-commerce.
We are looking for an experienced, senior-level full-stack engineer with a speciality or preference in Backend development.
