Working at Zoro

Life is better when you can have fun at work.

Job. Toil. Daily grind. Rat race. Slog. Hamster wheel. Punch the clock. That’s how some people describe a “normal” work day. Who wants that daily routine? Not us!

At Zoro, our “normal” is a little different.

On a “normal” Zoro day, you might:

  • icon1  use emojis more than your desk phone
  • icon2  sit on a yoga ball instead of a desk chair (if that’s your thing)
  • icon3  dodge the occasional co-worker on a scooter or roller skates
  • icon4  get pulled into a lunchtime ping-pong or badminton battle
  • icon5  have a spontaneous chat with the president on “bacon vs. prime rib”
  • icon6  work on 5 different projects, with 5 different departments
