Product Manager, Devices
We’re ecobee, a proudly Canadian consumer product company that is transforming the smart home. Our mission is to create a “Helpful Home” – a home that listens, senses and responds to customer’s needs. We do this by creating innovative, thoughtful and beautifully designed products that deliver comfort, enhance control and reduce energy waste & carbon emissions. So, they aren’t just smart for our users—but for our planet too.
We created the worlds’ first Wi-Fi connected smart thermostats that demystified heating and cooling equipment for users. We followed that with ecobee Room SensorTM technology that provided temperature information for whole home rather than just where thermostat is connected which enabled us to deliver greater comfort and savings to our customers. We then embedded a voice assistant into a thermostat and light switch at no additional cost to our customers but providing access to music, weather, knowledgebase and delivered whole home voice. We are innovative and creative and are out to create a “helpful home” through technology.
