Meet Sarah Foulke - Optoro's Corporate Marketing Manager

What she loves about working for Optoro, and more!

Optoro is made up of a diverse collection of individuals who have come together to achieve a single mission–to transform the reverse logistics industry by finding homes for used and excess goods. We like to highlight that diversity with our Employee Spotlight blog series, during which we sit down with an employee every month to hear a little bit about the people who make the Optoro culture so distinctive.

Loyal, creative, analytical, dreamer, traveler, fitness freak

What is your role at Optoro, and what do you do?

I am a Corporate Marketing Manager at Optoro and I am responsible for digital content. Essentially this means that I run campaigns to target our prospective customers, customers, and partners to highlight the value of Optoro's solutions and keep them engaged.

What did you do before Optoro, and why did you choose to work at Optoro?

I worked for another software company in the e-commerce space for 8 years (including an internship). I gained experience in several areas of marketing and even got to work internationally in London, England for 2 years.

After returning from London and spending some time in Raleigh, NC, I was ready for a new challenge in a new city and started looking for tech companies in the D.C. area. A lot of my close friends ended up here as well as some family, so it seemed like the place to be. I remembered hearing of Optoro through conferences in the e-commerce space, saw that they were hiring and the rest is history!

What is the most important thing you have learned since starting at Optoro?

I've learned that no matter how new you are to a company, your ideas still matter. Not having been a "newbie" in almost a decade, I was wary of coming in and recommending changes right away, but the culture at Optoro made it easy for me to feel like I could start contributing immediately.

What is the best part of working at Optoro?

I'm pretty sure that everyone says this, but the people are truly the best part of working at Optoro. The entire team is warm, welcoming, hard-working, smart and fun. I felt like a member of the team on day one and can't say enough great things about our culture here.

What would you most likely be doing on a normal Saturday afternoon in your free time?

Since it's the summer, I'm most likely at one of my friends' rooftop pools! I love being outside and especially soaking up the sun. On not so nice days, I'm probably taking a fitness class, going to a festival, traveling for a quick weekend trip, or just relaxing with friends.

How To Handle Conversations on Race with Your Non-Black Coworkers

I sat in front of my CEO to discuss several complaints of racism. I was new to my role as a Culture Director. I was nervous about his reaction to the complaints. But I also knew he strongly supported developing this new department; I knew that he would take the right steps. So I was shocked when I heard him say sheepishly, "I don't know, Noelle...all of this stuff about racism. I just don't see it. I don't even see color. I'm pretty much color blind."
