Who is Vintage Cash Cow?

We're the easy way for people to sell their old stuff.


People have cupboards, attics, lofts and garages full of fantastic and unusual old vintage items. However, there's no fast and easy way to sell it all, so it sits in homes for years.


As pioneers in "Vintage Re-commerce," we're using in-house built tech and a love for all things data to help people cash in these old items.


Our hassle-free, haggle-free service is the future of clearing out to cash in.


You'll also be working on the backend platform for our soon to launch fundraising platform www.vintagegiving.com.


Vintage Giving is the easy way for anyone to raise funds for a charity using their old donated goods.


Finally, any charity, whether they have retail shops or not, can have their supporters send old vintage items and have it turned into much-needed funds - the best part... It costs the charity nothing and they have no work to do. 


The supporters send their old items to Vintage Giving and we turn it into an immediate cash donation for the charity. 


We're a sustainability focussed business - We're fuelling the circular economy and want to enable everyone buy more things second hand, helping people and charities raise some easy cash in the process.


Our active group of investors include the founders of We transfer, Just-Eat, Treatwell, So Wifi, Fonq and all play a decisive role in some of the most exciting start ups in Europe. 


We've got ambitious growth goals for scaling up in the UK, and we're now operational in the Netherlands. This year we'll be launching in at least two more European countries too. 


To achieve our goals, we're now building our development team and need a new Senior Web Developer to come and be a part of it.
