Ember Technologies – Why Work With Us?

We believe in the transformative power of temperature control

Ember is a design-led temperature control brand and technology platform, whose mission is to revolutionize the people eat, drink and live. Founded by inventor and serial entrepreneur Clay Alexander, Ember creates, designs and develops temperature control products that offer people complete customization. The award-winning Ember Travel Mug and Ember Mug are the most advanced coffee mugs on the market, allowing individuals to set and maintain their preferred drinking temperature for hot beverages. Ember's world-class team consists of product designers, engineers and executives formerly with Apple, Microsoft, Nokia, Under Armour, Beats by Dre and Amazon Labs.

The spark of Ember: It all started with cold eggs

How could eggs, fresh off the stove, become so cold, so quickly?  This simple question led entrepreneur, Clay Alexander, down an exciting and uncharted path to ultimately create one of the world’s most revolutionary consumer product brands.

In 2009, Alexander sat down for breakfast with his wife, and within minutes, as always, his eggs were cold. As a successful, serial inventor, Alexander stared at his cold eggs, and pondered how he could solve this problem. There just had to be a better way. Why couldn't the plate keep his food warm, and mugs keep his coffee hot? This sparked Alexander’s interest in temperature control. He wanted to create a new category of dishware that would maintain a perfect temperature versus just keeping food and drinks hot. Amazon Labs.
