Country Manager US

Description

Depop is the social mobile marketplace for the next generation. It is a platform catering to how the next generation shops, perceives brands, uses technology and seeks community. Buying and selling on Depop is a social affair. We focus on individual sellers allowing them to create their own unique profiles, through which they become brands on their own. Our community of 10M are our most vocal supporters and with our dedicated ambassador programmes also the most important lever behind our sustained growth.

We have recently raised Series B of $20M and are positioned for strong global growth, with razor sharp focus on expanding our already solid foundations in the US market. We are very excited about our new physical spaces in Los Angeles (Silver Lake) and in New York (Soho). We are looking for a strong Country Manager for the US to lead our dedicated local teams and help us succeed in the US. With an entrepreneurial mind and people focus, the Country Manager will grow both our seller and buyer sides of the marketplace, create new growth opportunities for Depop, and support our unique and creative community.
