Operations Technician

Fort Collins, CO | Full-Time

Apply For This Job

Newaya started in a dormitory in 2010

Today we sell to customers in Colombia, Ukraine, Dubai, and across the USA

Newaya has grown substantially in the last 7 years from its start in a dormitory at CSU. We work with some of the largest cell phone companies in the country, buying their used cell phones and accessories to test and sell to retailers around the world. Cell phone stores rely on Newaya for quality used phones to sell to their customers.

Your job as one of our ops technicians is to test the functionality and condition of each device that comes through our office before we sell it to one of our customers. This testing is critically important - it ensures that the people who buy from us get what they expect. Your day-to-day responsibilities will be to test phones and tablets, manage inventory, pick phones out for shipping, and pack outgoing orders.

On your first day, you should have:

  • Prior experience in a fast-paced process environment - where it’s obvious when teammates are pulling their weight (or not)
  • Focus and self-motivation - We don't want someone who has to be constantly managed. If you only work well with a manager telling you what to do--DO NOT APPLY
  • Organization and task orientation - be able to create and manage your own to-do list
  • A Learner’s Resourcefulness - be excited to ask questions and research as you run into unknowns
  • A basic understanding of smartphones and tablets - know the difference between iOS and Android

It’s admired, but not required, if you have:

  • A tech savvy background - tinkering with hardware/software
  • An entrepreneurial spirit - have you sold your own product

We’re a small team (4 full time) working hard to build the best company to source used electronics from for resale. We get excited about new smartphone releases and what technology has in store for the world next. In the office, we share ideas about how to make our processes more efficient and then implement them in our software and the business daily.

Right now we process 1,500 used phones and tablets through our office each month. You’ll help us get to 3,000.

Hourly: $12/hr

We put each employee on a three-month trial to see if you’re a good fit for us (and if we’re a good fit for you). These benefits kick-in if you stay on after the trial:

  • Annual Bonus: Target 5% of annual salary with multipliers for personal and company performance
  • Insurance: $0 deductible health care coverage, dental, vision, and life insurance. Newaya pays 75% and you pay 25% from your pre-tax salary.
  • 401(k): You’ll get an account with Guideline, one of the best 401(k) providers. Put your pre-tax income into an invested savings account.
  • Make A Real Impact: We are a small start-up (4 full-time people). You will be a major part of our team and will help shape our growth.
  • Vacation: Flexible vacation/sick leave with a target of 2-3 weeks/yr.
