The recently released Hestan Cue Smart Cooking System is a revolutionary hardware/software system that is going to drastically change the way people cook in their home. A sensor-enabled induction burner and sauté pan seamlessly integrate with the Hestan Cue app, which is filled with inspiring meal suggestions and chef-tested recipes with step-by-step instructions and how-to videos. Together, they give you the ability to cook perfect meals every day.

Creating delightful and engaging user experiences that address business, brand, market, and user requirements

Collaborate with outside vendors including ad agencies, web developers, and independent marketing contractors.
What we're looking for:
Killer portfolio, including (shipped!) mobile work and brand design
A love of food & cooking
Expert level skills in Adobe creative suite and/or Sketch. Familiarity with other design tools such as invision is an added bonus.

Understanding of technical challenges and how to communicate with engineers
Proven experience collaborating with internal and external marketing teams
Experience within CPG’s is highly desired, but not required
