Hello, we're Smarter Sorting
Smarter Sorting utilizes machine learning and artificial intelligence to create the best decision path for unsalable products. We help businesses manage their regulated waste stream to automate compliance and increase reuse. The sorting process allows for some products to be routed to alternative markets and make responsible reuse possible.
Why Work with Us?
We do what it takes. We become experts. We are not jerks. We are real. We have grit. We play it fast and loose here, but we’re all driven to be proactive and strategic. A healthy culture is key to our company’s success and more importantly our employee happiness. Our core values drive our healthy culture and in turn, we achieve our vision.
An Insider's view of Smarter Sorting
What's something quirky about your company?
We always have baby goats, bunnies and chickens attend all of our company events because they've been scientifically proven to sharpen business acumen and bolster synergy.
What's the biggest problem your team is solving?
My team is working to develop a product that will bring back of store technology into the 21st century. We are helping clients better manage all of their back of store processes by providing tools that work for them instead of tools that they have to work with. It's fun to be a part of a team that is building out a revolutionary product!
What does career growth look like on your team?
Smarter Sorting is extremely supportive of our career growth. One of our values is 'We will become experts.' I'll be getting my HR certification this year and it will be completely funded by our Administrative department. We also buy our employees any books they need for continuing education.

What is your vision for the company?
My vision for Smarter Sorting is to revolutionize the industry with smart technology. I truly want to maximize the salvation of unsold or unwanted items and force people to second guess the word “waste.” Internally, I want to create a culture where genuine, talented people can learn and grow.
VP of Customer Success
What are some social events your company does?
Every day at Smarter Sorting is like a social event. Our internal slogan is "party all the time". Snack days are held every Thursday and feature local treats. We invite baby goats & bunnies to all company events. We also facilitate volunteering opportunities for our employees including Dress for Success, Austin Habitat for Humanity and lots more.
