The refurbished consumer electronics market is growing significantly as an alternative to purchasing new devices. With over 6 million customers, Back Market is the leading dedicated renewed tech marketplace bringing high-quality professionally refurbished electronic devices and appliances, including smartphones, laptops, gaming consoles, and more. The key to ensuring they meet the needs of each customer and seller is data, but as analytical workloads rose, so did the need to consume their data in a rapid, efficient and secure manner.
To enable this, Florian Valeye (a Delta Lake Committer) and the engineering team at Back Market have been important contributors to the creation of the Delta Rust API and associated Python bindings to enable low-latency queries of delta table without having to spin up a Spark cluster. They've also been actively involved in Delta Lake community office hours, contributors to the AWS Labs Athena Federation, reviewing code, and even our partnerships with Google BigQuery.
