As B2B Marketplace Coordinator you will have the opportunity to help shape Otrium’s latest business unit - the B2B marketplace. We are looking for a driven, high-energy individual who will grow and manage the demand side of our B2B marketplace and ensure Otrium can fulfil its mission: making sure every clothing item is worn.

About Otrium

Founded and headquartered in Amsterdam, we’re a purpose-led business – we believe all clothing should be worn.

Right now, lots of fashion stays unsold. For the resources that went in and for the people who miss out, it’s such a shame. We’re here to fix this. We are an online fashion outlet marketplace and we tech-enable designer brands to find an owner for every item they produce.

We give brands an online outlet channel and digital tools to smartly connect dynamically-priced end-of-season collections with fashion-lovers. Then we give them the data so they can reproduce most-wanted items.

Our app re-imagines outlet shopping helping customers easily find reduced-price gems. We give end-of-season fashion a new start, which is smarter for the wardrobe, smarter for the wallet and smarter for the industry.

About this role

The B2B marketplace connects the brands on our platform to reliable and trusted stock buyers across the world, ensuring that any item that is not sold to a customer via our website or app still finds a good home. This is a relatively new business unit and we are working hard to make this the next successful part of Otrium.

We are looking for someone who can support the Lead B2B Marketplace in growing and managing the portfolio of stock buyers. You will play a key role in closing B2B marketplace deals as our key contact for our buyers. Additionally, you will have the opportunity to define, improve and manage processes and provide valuable input into the development of the future B2B marketplace product.
