About Saltbox

At Saltbox, we believe that operational excellence turns strong brands into great companies. For far too long, digitally-enabled companies working with physical goods have been pushed to the fringes of the entrepreneurial ecosystem. We’re here to change that. Within our purpose-built warehouses, we offer flexible workspaces and logistics-enabling solutions that help e-commerce companies start, grow, and scale.

Backed by some of the leading venture capital firms in the world, we are opening locations across the U.S. Founded by experienced executives in real estate, logistics, customer success and technology, we’re on a mission to ensure that every entrepreneur has a place to call home.

How do you know if this is the right fit? You have a strong background in fast-paced real estate transactions and are looking for your next challenge. You feel confident balancing executing on specific deals, building the machine that allows our real estate footprint to scale, and contributing to broader strategic initiatives and relationships.
