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.

Jared Robertson

Software Engineer

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!

Maya Lozada

Product Manager

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.' This year, Smarter Sorting sponsored my professional HR certification exam fees and a class at UT. Our company is always willing to support continuing education.

Valerie Lara

Director of HR & Recruiting

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.

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

At our fast-paced startup, idealistic ideation, sales, & product development are largely one in the same process.
