Community Partnerships Manager AU

Description

Depop is the fashion marketplace where the next generation buy, sell and get inspired, with more than 16 million registered users in 147 countries.

The next generation want a different experience of fashion that the traditional industry is struggling to provide. They want choice and individuality, the ability to buy on demand and sell on with ease. At the same time, they want to reduce waste. They want authenticity and to set their own trends. They are influenced by their peers and people they share values with. Our team of almost 200 people are dedicated to meeting these evolving needs.

Our mission is to empower the next generation to transform fashion. And our global community is everything to us: when they succeed, we succeed.

Depop is headquartered in London, UK, with locations in New York and LA. With over 18M items available for sale and close to 1M unique sellers in the last 12 months we are already a clear market leader in this exciting space. We have a prime position in the UK where we estimate 1 in 3 Gen Z/Millennials are registered. We are experiencing rapid growth (300% over two years) in the US; recently entering the top 25 shopping apps by daily active users (the only European player to do so). And we’re just getting started.
