Software Engineer, Node.js Microservices

Technology | Boston, MA | Full Time

Job Description


At B-Stock, we run lean, fast, and show no signs of slowing down. From the Bay Area to Boston to Salt Lake, Orlando, and London, our company is made up of people who are eager to transform the old-school way retailers and manufacturers think about one of their longest-standing challenges: liquidation.

We offer the world’s leading auction platform for returned, excess, and other liquidation inventory. Our platform sets up an online auction dynamic where retailers and manufacturers can sell directly to a diverse base of approved business buyers; this drives greater demand, higher pricing and a faster sales cycle, while maintaining the control our customers need. By applying our auction strategy and data, nine of the top 10 U.S. retailers, along with hundreds of other businesses, are attaining the highest pricing possible for secondary-market merchandise across all categories, conditions, and quantities.
