Senior Product Designer


Full Time
January 16, 2023

What started with a shared love of food and technology has evolved to become the only neutral, cross-brand platform that seamlessly brings appliances, home cooks, and recipes together–Fresco’s KitchenOS.

Partnering with the world's biggest appliance makers like BOSCH, Electrolux, GE Appliances, Instant Brands, Kenwood, LG Electronics, Panasonic, and Thermomix, Fresco knows that no kitchen has appliances from a single brand. The KitchenOS platform combined with the Fresco app is the seamless way consumers interact with their kitchen through whatever interface or appliance they choose.

With offices in Dublin, Ireland, and Madrid, Spain, Fresco’s mission is to spread the love of home cooking by using technology to empower home chefs in the kitchen.

At Fresco, we understand that people are what makes food great. We also believe people are what makes our company great. If you’re interested in joining our team, apply now and serve up your best work at Fresco.
