    Born from the belief that great things come to those who cook, Yummly provides limitless inspiration, with the tools to make it happen—from recipe discovery to prep to perfect results. Just as appliances removed the most cumbersome chores, the next tipping point in daily life is upon us in the food space. A system of personalized discovery that learns you better to serve you better, so the question “what’s for dinner?” is answered before it’s even asked.

    Yummly has grown to over 28M registered users and our mobile apps are consistently one of the top recipe apps on iPhone, iPad, Android, and Windows. Next on the menu? Building the connected kitchen of the future.

    At Yummly, we are a team of talented and diverse technology professionals on a mission to rule the kitchen. We've seen great success using machine learning and artificial intelligence to make cooking fun, easy, and personalized. Our iOS and Android apps have 4.5+ star reviews, millions of downloads, and many awards (download and give it a try!). Additionally, we recently launched our first connected device, the Yummy Smart Thermometer.

    We were recently acquired by Whirlpool, the world’s largest home appliance maker. Together, we have appetizing aspirations to build the fully-connected kitchen of the future.

    We’re building a breathtaking new permanent home office in San Carlos that will open its doors in Fall of 2020. Due to COVID-19, we are all working at home at the moment and will remain flexible through the rest of the year. In the meantime, we are planning and implementing high level safety protocols for working in the office when the time comes.
