Job Description


Reusability is on a mission to provide returnable packaging solutions to our customers to improve their bottom line and make a positive impact on our environment. With 20 years of experience and one of the largest reverse logistics networks for tertiary packaging in North America, we're reimagining, reengineering, and reinventing how supply chains work.

We are expanding to new market verticals and helping more companies investigate and make the shift to reusables. Tertiary packaging accounts for 50lbs of waste on average per unit shipped; we are targeting 250M pounds of landfill avoidance by 2027.

We are building an elite team of like-minded people who obsess over customer service, efficient process, and smart technology to drive impact for some of the world's pressing sustainability challenges.

In all we do, our four core values are key to the success of our team:  

  • Act for the Greater Good  

  • Be a Problem Solver  

  • Own the Outcome  

  • Grow as a Team or Die Trying
