Careers at GO Box

Help us change how people value packaging.

GO Box designs, builds and operates circular, zero waste reuse systems that eliminate the harmful environmental, social and economic impacts of single-use products. We are currently focusing on addressing single-use waste resulting from to-go food and drink by providing professionally clean and sanitized reusable containers and cups as a service to food service establishments and takeout customers. GO Box has already eliminated over 750,00 single-use products and we’re just getting started! We are a exciting start-up looking to rapidly scale our service this year. 

We are currently hiring for the below positions. GO Box is an equal opportunity employer and we strongly encourage candidates of color and other underrepresented groups to apply. We value and encourage a culture of diversity and celebrate our employees’ multiple identities, including age, color, race and ethnicity, gender identity or expression, language, physical ability, religion, sexual orientation, socio-economic status and veteran status. 

GO Box is a full-service reuse platform that eliminates single-use trash. We’ve already eliminated nearly 1 million plastic packaging from the landfill. Our mission is to make the circular economy a reality for any business that wants to reduce its packaging waste.

We’re embarking on the next phase of our story – expanding our footprint across the Portland region, and to new markets across the US. We’re looking for a summer marketing intern with the ambition and passion to make a difference and reduce plastic waste.
