Mixtiles is a home design startup, our mission is to create homes people love. Today, home design is kind of boring!

All companies make the same products, with slightly different styles and prices. Not us! We bring tech, design and engineering to the challenge.

We started with the world's best way to put photos on walls. Then we got into art and built the world's best art service!

And now, we are thrilled to introduce easyplant! An exciting product that is helping people to fill their homes with beautiful long-living plants and improve the way we all live and breathe.

We’re looking for a Director of R&D,easyplant. Out of the box & creative-thinker who can bring a new product from idea to mass-production. A full stack maker and engineer who understands how material functions, and knows how to make almost anything.

Meet easyplant - who we are?

As part of our mission to make home design frictionless we understood that plants are the worst home design product that dies constantly. We believe this is an engineering issue and we forged our focus towards a mission to prevent plants from dying. Hence, we invested 2 years and developed a self-watering system that prevents plants from dying. The adoption rates of the product in the market are just phenomenal and we are accelerating our activity which is increasing our need for a top-notch Director of R&D to build new products and further enrich our offering.
