About recyclabox

Millions of people every year replace their phone, upgrade their tablets or stop watching a DVD. However, for most, the existing avenues for selling unwanted electronics are cumbersome and inconvenient.

recyclabox is an ambitious technology company that has developed an automated kiosk to revolutionise the way consumers sell old electronics.

Our customers bring their unwanted items to their nearest machine, follow the simple on-screen instructions, and deposit their items in the kiosk. The process is intuitive and takes less than 5 minutes from start to finish.

The item is verified within 2 working days, and payment is sent directly to their account.

After overwhelming success launching recyclabox in Sainsbury’s and Morrisons, a national roll out to 500+ locations is underway.

What’s the opportunity?

You will be transforming the recyclabox from a prototype kiosk to a professionally engineered, aesthetically beautiful, awe-inspiring machine, capable of being produced in large batches, quickly and cost-effectively.

• Create scheduling and delivery plans for design completion.

What skills and experience do you need?
