About VORTO

We are building software which enables businesses to be more economically and environmentally sustainable by digitally transforming the supply chain.

About the Role

We are looking for our first dedicated design hire to help Vorto bring AI to supply chains in the world’s largest companies. You’ll work with our product and engineering team to design interfaces that simplify complex business problems to a degree where adoption is effortless. Our product is sui generis, and as such requires our users to adopt new ways of thinking about procurement and logistics due to the level of automation we are bringing to the space.

Responsibilities

  • Partner with our CPO to define and solve the highest impact problems for our customers
  • Immerse yourself in the business & company strategy to understand our biggest opportunities for growth
  • Deeply understand a complex problem space and find simple, powerful solutions that use AI to minimize user interaction

  • You have 5+ years designing software at a product-driven company
  • You have designed customer facing, enterprise products
  • You have a portfolio showing your work, passions, process, and impact
  • You have strong analytical reasoning abilities, and can quickly decompose a problem to its fundamentals
  • You like solving complex, multi-faceted problems and enjoy exploring the ambiguity inherent to defining a new product category
  • You like shipping, and are willing to make hard tradeoffs in order to get features in the hands of customers
  • You’re a self-starter, who can proactively identify strategic opportunities for impact even when they’re not assigned to you
  • You enjoy collaboration, feedback, and iteration. You can explain the reasoning behind your design decisions and opinions
  • You’re comfortable in a high-growth startup, can balance many simultaneous projects, and thrive in fast-paced environments

An Insider's view of VORTO

What's something quirky about your company?

We listen to "Who Let the Dogs Out" almost daily at 4:30pm and have the most well stocked refridgerator in town... ranging from energy drinks, all types of La Croix, snacks galore, and even lunch choices, we're a fan of eating and drinking well. The environment feels like the cup is half-full with generosity for all of the hard work. ;)

Jennie

Office Manager/Executive Administrator

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

We are an extremely collaborative team so I am always working with other groups within the company. While I am testing, I am in constant communication with our software developers; when I am presenting to clients, I am in communication with our sales team; and our operations team has daily updates on all customer activities.

Kaitlynn

Operations Manager

What are some things you learned at the company?

Even as an engineer, I’ve learned that it is crucial to understand how the user experiences our app day-to-day. Without that context, it is impossible to take full ownership for building new features. I’ve also learned how much grit and resilience it takes to deliver a product that thousands of people use every day.

Ryan

AI Engineer

What unique initiatives do you have that encourage innovation?

Innovation is only valuable when it is commercializable. So many companies either a) never innovate, or b) innovate, but without ever creating any value. We invest in exposing every Vortonian to diverse aspects of our business & industry so they can innovate in ways which make an impact.

Sam

Chief Product Officer

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

Biggest problem we're solving is simplifying the supply chain industry, minimizing the number of trucks that are needed on the road, and at the same time increasing customer's earnings by eliminating non productive time (NPT) and demurrage.

Engineer Manager
