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

About the Role

Are you willing to give up a significant part of your personal life to commit to a startup company in downtown Denver, CO? Are you prepared to work with a strong software engineering team that is dedicated to disrupting the status quo? Are you looking for a challenge that will leave you feeling fulfilled? If yes, our Product Manager role is perfect for you!

As a Product Manager at Vorto you will be responsible for challenging the team to think bigger and move faster to solve big supply chain problems. You will be accountable to maintain a clear & valuable backlog of features and inspire the team to quick action to make an impact.

Although the markets we play in are very sizable and entrenched, we derive our advantage from speed of innovation and working smarter, harder, and faster than our competition.

We have achieved significant market share in initial markets at incredible speed. Vorto is motivated to supplement its team with leaders who can help it strengthen its market presence and accomplish incredible feats.


  • Maintain a clear, vetted, valuable backlog
  • Challenge the team to continuously accelerate delivery
  • Rapidly innovate by conceptualizing, developing, and shipping high quality improvements, features, or products which make a significant impact to solve customer challenges and achieve strategic business objectives
  • Operationalize newly developed improvements, features or products to gain adoption

Within the first 30 days you will:

  • Gain the trust and respect of the engineering team.
  • Develop a deep knowledge and understanding of the existing products, their technical architecture, and data
  • Become a recognized expert on your target users and customers
  • Develop enough operational context to train customers, onboard new users, and handle support requests as needed
  • Understand our advantages, differentiation, business strategy, and our competitive landscape.


  • BS/BA Computer Science, or plenty of hands-on experience building their own software
  • 5+ years as a product manager, product owner or founder
  • You have shipped products that have achieved market success
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills
  • Experience with design tools for wireframing & rapid prototyping (e.g. Figma)
  • Experience with SQL for basic data analysis and reporting
  • Experience working with high-performance teams who exceeded team and business objectives

To be successful in this role, you must:

  • Have a strong "sense of urgency", to accelerate our delivery cadence.
  • Feel and drive deep responsibility to meet commitments and deliver results.
  • Know when design or copy is good or bad (you strive for greatness, but never let the perfect be the enemy of the good).
  • Be calm, cool, and collected when presented with adversity. You never panic.
  • Have phenomenal product sense and can make correct product decisions under ambiguity inherent to quickly building and bringing innovative B2B products to market.
  • Demonstrate leadership ability through your insight into our business, strategy, operations, and market to become a highly valuable resource to the engineers you work with.

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. ;)


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.


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.


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.


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.
