Senior Director of Product

Optoro is a fast-growing tech 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. We provide a technology solution that keeps these items out of landfills and connects them to their best use, increasing recovery value, giving consumers great deals, and reducing environmental waste.

Our Mission is to champion the world's returned and excess goods, create unmatched value, and power the future of sustainable commerce. 

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