About Us

We’re building the next generation of food storage systems for the household. We're unreasonably passionate about using hardware and data science to make food last longer, to help people manage what they have, and to get the food they want, when they want it. We're reinventing a category that's nearly a century old.

The CEO and Founder of Edesia previously also co-founded, led product at, and scaled a multi-billion dollar technology company that has won numerous awards, including being named the #1 Best Place To Work In Seattle (more than once).

Where You'd Fit In

You’re going to help us determine the optimal storage conditions for fruits and vegetables inside the systems we’re engineering.

As our first scientist hire, you’re going to build this practice up from the foundations (don’t worry, we’ll help). You’ll be working with the CEO to plan research, with Postharvest PhDs to to validate the process and results, and with engineers to work on improvements to the systems you’ll be using every day.

Heads up - this isn't an academic role. You'll be moving quickly, working hands on with real cutting-edge technology, delivering valuable research that will tangibly inform the direction of the company.



This role is eligible for equity and benefits. The salary for this role in the state of Washington is between $60,000 and $85,000.

This salary range may depend on factors including but not limited to skills, prior relevant experience, and leveling. Hired applicant is also eligible to receive equity grants in the form of either a direct grant of stock or an option to purchase stock in the future for a specified price.

What We're Looking For

Simply put, we're looking for somebody who has a foundation in the scientific process, familiarity with evaluating qualitative attributes of produce samples, who can learn extremely quickly, and who is eager to roll up their sleeves and deliver on big goals.
