What We're Building

The light in our homes is essential to our living there. It touches every moment. For something this important to our comfort and well-being, it's time that someone, or in our case, a group of "someones," take the time to create a system that helps us all live better with light. It is from this mission that Orro was born.

We're at the forefront of applying the latest technologies to a challenging problem. Hardware, firmware, Android, RxJava, iOS, Swift, AWS, Deep Learning and more are all on the table and being implemented everyday.

Our vision is to enable the IoT experience we all know is possible but others have yet to deliver. I am proud to be a part of this dedicated and creative team. Join us to take a crack at some extremely interesting hardware, firmware, and software challenges.
We're working at the frontier of what the home will be in the next 5 years: ambient and ubiquitous computing. Elegant hardware for environmental awareness, powerful machine-learning for decision making, and robust software to make things effortless for our users. It's a pleasure to work with an inspiring group of comrades on hard problems. Come join our crew as we embark on this exciting journey.
It's super-exciting to be building a product from the ground up that will change how we interact with the physical world around us. We love thinking about solutions to problems using today's technology and the technology that will be the norm 5 years from now. Our core group has worked together for quite some time, and now we're looking for other great minds to join us.
We've identified a major opportunity! It's an ambitious goal and that results in interesting problems to solve and lots of people to help. Working on this project has captured my imagination and we have some great work ahead.
