Our purpose

Otrium is a purpose-led business – we see a future where all clothing is worn.

Every year, billions of items are produced globally but are never sold. Clothing goes unworn and often ends up in landfills. This is a huge waste of creative energy, labour, natural resources and investment. Otrium is changing fashion from the inside out: we are an online fashion outlet marketplace and we tech-enable designer brands to find an owner for every item they produce. 

How we work

Founded and headquartered in Amsterdam, operating across Europe, Otrium is a start-up company whose diverse, talented and international team, works diligently and passionately to achieve one mission: Wear Over Waste. We have a hybrid set-up which offers flexibility and freedom to our O-Team - this means we encourage our (local) O-Team members to join together in our office based in the Houthavens, Amsterdam at least 2 days per week. Do you have a gym class at 11am or want to take your dog for a walk? Just make up the hour some other way. Fancy a change of scenery whilst you do your work? Feel free to make use of our 8 weeks Workation policy! 


Your impact

The best thing our engineers love about Otrium is the opportunity to impact the shopping experience of millions of fashion lovers. Developers are involved within the lifetime of the product, not only on the technical side.
