At Saltbox, we believe that operational excellence turns strong brands into great companies. For far too long, digitally-enabled companies working with physical goods have been pushed to the fringes of the entrepreneurial ecosystem. We’re here to change that. Within our purpose-built warehouses, we offer flexible workspaces, office space, community amenities and fulfillment services that help ecommerce companies start, grow, and scale.

Backed by some of the leading venture capital firms in the world, we are opening locations across the U.S. Founded by experienced executives in real estate, logistics, customer success, and technology, we’re on a mission to ensure that every entrepreneur has a place to call home.

Your warehouse management skills, attention to detail, and logistics expertise will be essential in driving our company's success by optimizing our receiving operations.

How do you know if this is the right fit? You operate with an ownership mentality and high integrity. We can count on you to show up when you say you will and to bring a healthy level of creativity and precision, to ask questions to improve when you don’t understand. You enjoy being part of a small team, working independently, and desire a chance to work on a variety of operations related tasks.
