Over the weekend I was having a conversation with some friends about what kind of bagged lunches we used to take to school. A common theme was the popularity of Lunchables and how it was a rare occasion for most of us to have our parents actually buy Lunchables at the supermarket (I didn’t care for Lunchables, so I was scorned by the group). Lunchables have absolutely nothing to do with today’s company, except that whenever I hear the name Inventables, I immediately think of Lunchables. Inventables is a Chicago based (I think that I can actually see their office from my window) company that helps companies innovate by making sourcing and selling materials and technologies easy. In other words they go out and find the newest, most innovative materials and provide a subscription service that provides information to companies that are looking for new materials to use in their products. They look for materials like we look for entry level jobs.
It’s hard to explain how cool the idea behind Inventables is. You really need to check out their Innovation Center product to see what it’s all about. You’ll also want to check out Inventables’ Customer List and Case Studies. You’ll see exactly how Inventables is changing the face of many companies’ products. One example is with Fossil watches – Inventables provided Fossil with “Inventables’ item ele.222, a combination LCD and push-button switch” which inspired the idea of creating a stop watch that can be slapped to start and stop (so you don’t have to push that tiny little button). Another example of Inventables’ driving innovation is when they provided Micro-Suction® Surface tape to Palm to provide a base for their Treo docks that won’t slip. If you’re fascinated by materials and love innovation, then a job at Inventables is just what you’re probably looking for. Right now they have job openings for a Research Coordinator (may require experience), a Supplier Advocate, and a Client Specialist. There are also always freelance Technology Hunter jobs available with Inventables.
