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!

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.
