Zoro.com is an eCommerce company that sells business supplies, equipment, and tools—but we’re much more than just a website. We’re a team of people who win and lose together (we prefer winning!). Since 2011, Zoro has been working hard to make it easy for our customers to purchase everything they need to make their businesses go. Zoro currently offers 3 million products, fast and free shipping, no-hassle returns, and exceptional customer service. We’ve grown quickly in a short time, recently surpassing 400 team members and reaching annual revenue of over $500 million. Add to that our award-winning culture—we were named a Great Place to Work for 2019-20, among other accolades—and we think Zoro is a pretty amazing place to work and grow.
Zoro is currently offering one paid internship for a passionate & driven individual interested in joining our Zoro.com team for the summer of 2020. This is a full-time opportunity and will start early June and end in late August. The start and end dates can be flexible based on your semester schedule.
We are the team responsible for the Zoro.com website. We work hard every day to make sure the folks who visit our website have a fantastic experience. We cooperate with every group at Zoro to make sure that our business goals for the website align with our customer needs (and make sure that it works well and looks great in the process).
