Work with Oro!

⚑ What do we do at Oro?

We are building products and services that can help create a financial system that is more inclusive. There are 3 primary tenets based on which we build our products – trust, access and pricing.

πŸŽ–οΈ
At Oro, we aspire to make gold in Indian households more valuable!

We ensure our products are simple and transparent, and build partnerships that embody trust. All of this, to provide convenience to the customer at cheapest possible costs.

Indians own 25,000 tonnes of gold, stored in their houses or bank lockers. Out of that, less than 1,500 tonnes contributes positively to India's GDP.

🀯
Fun fact: 2,500 tonnes of gold is worth Rs.15 Lakh Crores (Rs.1,50,00,00,00,00,000).

Oro's mission is to help monetise the next 10%, or ~ 2,500 tonnes by leveraging technology, convenience and partnerships - boosting India's GDP by over 6%.

Solving this is going to be (r)evolutionary! It will take multiple products and a kick-ass team. There's infinite potential, and we want YOU to be a part of it.

πŸ” Who are we looking for?

πŸ’‘
Problem Solvers We understand that solving a problem is just a step to having more problems to solve. If there is a problem, we find a solution.
🐈
Curious We question what's happening and understand why. We try not to assume, and always want to listen.
πŸ™‡β€β™‚οΈ
User First Everyone in India has gold. This means our audience is very diverse. We try and understand who we are building for and that dictates what we build.
🧠
Integrity While we want to push the envelope with everything we do, we wish to remain thoughtful and always do little bits that set us apart.

FAQs:

We believe in transparency, and in building a trusting relationship with everyone we interact with. While we answer a lot of basic questions on orocorp.in, here are some other things you might be curious about -

β€£
Where does Oro operate from?

We're a Chennai company, currently working out of Nungambakkam. We're located 2.5kms from the beach, 1.5km from Chennai's favourite movie complex and there's loads of places around if you feel peckish or party like.

P.S.: Don't worry if you don't know Tamil. Most of us speak Hindi or one other language

β€£
Are we open for remote work?

We're a small team and we love working in the same space. It really helps with brainstorming and collaboration!

However, we know times are challenging - so we are open to some positions working remotely.

β€£
What is the work-life balance like at Oro?

We're quite balanced, at least that's what we like to believe! Although there's no mandatory working hours, we start hustling by 10 am and the wind down by 7-8 pm. It depends on what we're trying to accomplish at that point, and what your role is. But it's simple: we trust you to get work done. Whatever time you'd like to it.

β€£
When did we hit market? How much funding have we raised?

We've raised $650K from people who have built and invested in multiple successful businesses. We are in the middle of another fund raise.

Oro was conceptualised in March 2020, just before COVID hit. The pandemic helped us realise how important the use of gold could be to financially empower Indian households; furthering our resolve. We launched in Jan '21, and we're trending ahead of our plans!

β€£

Backend: AWS EC2, Docker, AWS Lambda, Hasura and Node.js
