    What We Do

    The light in our homes is essential to our living there. It touches every moment. For something this important to our comfort and well-being, it's time that someone, or in our case, a group of "someones," take the time to create a system that helps us all live better with light. It is from this mission that Orro was born.

    The opportunity is enormous, making our work exciting, challenging and rewarding when we look at how our company stands to make people's lives better. We're a small team so you'll have the opportunity to be a part of the early team and build critical parts of our company.

    How We Interview & Hire

    We aspire to make all hiring decisions in less than 3 weeks from your first call.

    Our interview process begins with an intro call to help you learn more about the role, learn more about your interests, and help decide if there is a mutual fit.

    If we move forward, we'll schedule a series of phone/video call to deep dive into your resume and share a LOT more about what we're doing. From there, there will be technical screenings (for Engineers), we'll ask for examples of your work (if you can share), and a work session of some type (coding challenge for engineers) to decide if there's a mutual fit.
