A bit about us:

We are a design and user experience driven consumer electronics start-up valued at over $50MM. We are making revolutionary wifi and bluetooth connected products in the kitchen appliance space. The market we are playing in is massive and ripe for disruption as there has been very little innovation in the past 50 years. Within our segment, we are in the premium category in which we win on design, overall user experience and machines that produce a superior finished product.

Our initial funding came from tens of thousands of pre-orders we booked based on nothing more than a concept and a few thousand dollars in social media advertising. From there venture capital funding followed shortly. Demand was so strong that we had to shut off the presales while we went about making these machines a reality! Now a few years later, we are in the manufacturing phase with thousands of units in the wild with our pre-sales customers. Initial reviews are phenomenal. People really love the product!

Why join us?

We are entering a new and exciting era of rapid growth in production volume and overall expansion and we are in need of an experienced HR leader with a generalist background. This position will report directly to the CEO and CFO. As the first North American HR hire, you will build the infrastructure, systems, processes and Human Resources department to accommodate our rapid growth and expansion.
