A bit about the Ora culture

  • We work hard - some days are long, some are short, but overall we’re pushing to change an $80 billion dollar industry, and we need people who are as passionate as we are to do it
  • We’re foodies - we love good food, and we’re always looking for the next place to dine out or recipe to try in the office
  • We’re open, honest, and positive - we keep things out in the open, and if something is going wrong we don’t wait around for it to all fall apart. We face problems head on, together, and we come to each other with solutions
  • We’re inclusive - Ora Organic is a safe space for us, our customers, our employees, our friends, our family, everyone.
  • We like to think we’re fun - well, we are a San Diego based company so we love the beach, jackfruit tacos, and a crafty brew (or Boochcraft) as the sun goes down!
