Hop on the Rocketship 

Thrasio is a next-generation consumer goods company reimagining how the world’s most-loved products become accessible to everyone. We use a deep understanding of rankings, ratings, and reviews to identify and acquire quality brands and use world-class expertise and data science to make their products better or create new ones to meet changing customer demand.

We’ve got huge goals, and every Thrasher plays an integral part in getting us to the stratosphere. That’s why we only bring on people who think positively. Who look out for the team. Who tell their egos to take a hike while they get the job done right.

An Insider's view of Thrasio

What's something quirky about your company?

Thrasio culture thrives on the "fail-forward" mentality and it really encourages people to learn from their mistakes rather than being ashamed of them. This has really helped me gain confidence in my work and allowed me to take necessary risks that I would have otherwise avoided due to fear of failure.

Sofia Cacho

Partner Success Manager

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

Thrasio uses Zoom and Slack to foster collaboration between teams. Each brand has a dedicated Slack channel where we can talk through strategy and ideas. Often, groups will jump in a Zoom to talk through next steps and how we can work together to achieve success. These impromptu meetings and Slacks help us build a cohesive plan for each brand.

Director Google SEO

What makes someone successful on your team?

The most successful people at Thrasio aren’t afraid to try new things and take risks. Even if things fail, taking accountability and learnings from that to put toward the next project helps us all be more and more successful as we grow.

Jackie Pomposelli

Director, Marketing Operations

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

Data is the heart of Thrasio. The Technology team fuels data-driven decision making that optimizes our brands and overall internal functioning. We design structures, systems, experiments, and tools to address critical questions. We teach business stakeholders how to understand and use data. We’re the source that informs our company’s direction.
