You are a highly motivated Industrial Designer who loves nothing more than seeing products you helped design and build change the lives of everyday consumers. You are looking for a small, smart and fast-moving team where everyone makes a difference every day. We are that team.
You have experience designing and shipping consumer electronic products, ideally including one or more kitchen products. The objects you create are both beautiful and functional. You are fundamentally driven by the need to solve real problems for real people, in ways that create pure delight. On the flip side, you are keenly aware of the boundary conditions on various materials and manufacturing processes, and able to navigate your way to designs that can be effectively mass produced. And you are always willing to push the boundaries a little bit further with each product iteration.
You should be prepared to present a portfolio of products you have designed and successfully manufactured and shipped. Kitchen electronics, electromechanical and digitally connected household products would be ideal. Furthermore, you should be able to discuss the design decisions you made, and those you wish you had made, and how they impacted the final product. If you’ve got some war stories of products or designs gone bad, that’s great too. We’d love to hear them and what you learned from the experiences.
You will get a chance to not just make industrial design decisions, but drive product direction by interacting with mechanical engineers, electrical engineers, app designers, software engineers, product managers, marketers, and executives. There is some travel, mostly up and down the west coast.

Using the app, an induction burner and a sensor-enabled, Bluetooth connected pan, I was able to cook a piece of salmon that tasted as good as any piece of fish I'd ordered in a restaurant. The app acted as a guide, complete with how-to videos for each step, and as I clicked through the process the pan would tell the system the cooking temperature, and as I moved to the next step it would automatically adjust the burner.”
It’s not about adding technology for technology's sake, it’s about adding support and augmenting the experience that makes you a better cook - empowering you to try new things that you didn’t dare to cook before.”
By providing the automatic control of temperature and time throughout entire recipes, we remove much of the stress of cooking at home and guide you towards success in the kitchen.”
