Job description

Consumers now have the ability to pay monthly, keep it as long as they want, and the ultimate flexibility to return, purchase or upgrade to the latest model.
We have recently raised a pre-seed round from highly reputable investors from around the globe. With these funds we're building a diverse team who are passionate about generating social impact, are motivated by the opportunity to deliver new experiences, change consumer behaviors and establish new industry norms, and who thrive in the uncertainty and speed of a start-up environment.
