Internship Overview

About Fresco.

Fresco is the only technology that seamlessly brings appliances, home cooks, and recipes together through our smart kitchen platform–the 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 Zaragoza, Spain, and a distributed team, 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. And we know people are
what makes our company great. Join us and serve up your best work at Fresco.
