TBAuctions is a leading online auction platform for buying and selling used business goods. After several acquisitions, they are transitioning into one global organization. And their new Rewards Lead will design, implement, and manage, the organization’s global compensation and benefits programs to align with the company’s business objectives.

About TBAuctions

TBAuctions (TBA) is changing how buyers and sellers think about buying used industrial goods. They auction used business items on behalf of third parties through ATLAS, their proprietary tech platform for intelligent auctioning. Founded in 2018 with the merger of two established auction houses, TBA now operates eight brands, has over 135 million website visitors per year from more than 160 countries, and auctions nearly two million lots annually. This volume has made TBA one of the largest online auctioneers in Europe. The core industries featured on their platform include Construction, Transportation, Logistics, Agriculture, and Medical.

TBA is already the number one European digital auction house and has its sights set on a much larger scale. In 2022, the company was acquired by Castik Capital to support its next growth phase. And then Summa Equity joined Castik as a co-investor. This enables TBA to continuously strengthen their superior market position, accelerate organic growth, and increase the pace of add-on acquisitions. With support from Castik and Summa, TBA acquired Swedish auction platforms Klaravik and PS Auction; Norwegian auction platforms and Bjarøy AS; Danish platform DAB; as well as Benelux auction companies Epic and Vavato.

TBA plays a significant role in supporting the global environmental, social, and governance (ESG) agenda by connecting businesses worldwide with high quality, second hand and second chance goods, and accelerating society’s shift to more sustainable consumption. The company works with a diverse team of talented people who are encouraged to think out-of-the-box and take initiative as this fast-growing scale-up continues to disrupt and transform the online industrial goods auction industry.
