Company Description

Etekcity is an e-commerce retailer, IoT company, and family of successful household brands.

Maybe you’re really techy and you’ve set up several Voltson WiFi outlets at home with our app, VeSync.

Though we’re a young and energetic company, we’ve had tremendous success, and we’re constantly growing our team. As we garner more and more industry attention—just check out our awards from CES Innovation, iF Design, IGA, and Red Dot—we also need driven and talented people to join our team.

That brings us to you, and what you’d receive working here. Our employees are smart and hardworking individuals with great ownership over their projects—they’re confident in their work, yet know how to collaborate with open ears and a spirit of learning. If you’re down-to-earth, approachable, and easy to strike up a conversation with, this might be a great fit for you since work culture is a point of extreme pride and importance to us.
