Optoro is a fast-growing technology company that is revolutionizing the retail industry. Every year, more than 15% of retail goods are returned or simply never sell. This creates tons of unnecessary waste and costs retailers billions.

Our mission is to make retail more sustainable by eliminating all waste from returns. Our technology platform connects every returned item to its best home, thereby increasing profitability for retailers, giving consumers great deals, and reducing environmental waste.

Backed by some of the top investors in the country - including Kleiner Perkins, Revolution Growth, and UPS - Optoro is powered by its collaborative, unconventional, and resourceful employees who love solving big problems. We are looking for individuals with similar creativity and energy to help build a lasting company focused on the triple bottom line.

Engineering
We build software to help us solve this problem. We have tools that manage inventory in both ours and client warehouse processes, visualization and reports showing clients how much value they are getting out of their excess inventory, and entire eCommerce platforms and integrations to remarket (resell) these products.

Organized into cross-functional teams that work closely with our stakeholders, our Developers, QA Engineers, Product Managers, Designers, and DevOps Engineers iterate quickly to transform concepts into functional products. We focus on continuous delivery and favor short iterations and constant deployments. Our foundation is in Ruby and Rails, and we continue to expand our toolbox and use the best technologies for the job.

We value continuous learning and strive to foster an engaging environment. Developers can participate in weekly curated code talks or group programming sessions and receive a yearly budget to attend conferences. We hire people not only for their current skills but on their hunger to keep expanding their skills!

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

Completing this form is voluntary, but we hope that you will choose to fill it out. If you are applying for a job, any answer you give will be kept private and will not be used against you in any way.

If you already work for us, your answer will not be used against you in any way. Because a person may become disabled at any time, we are required to ask all of our employees to update their information every five years. You may voluntarily self-identify as having a disability on this form without fear of any punishment because you did not identify as having a disability earlier.
