A relentlessly passionate group of innovators


For the past 12 years, we (the passionate and meticulous employees at Ignite USA) have put creating innovative solutions at the forefront of everything that we do. It all began with an idea to eliminate spills with a coffee mug that sealed between sips. From there, we engineered a patented technology called AUTOSEAL® to deliver on that groundbreaking idea. We received such great feedback that we decided to jump in and start to revolutionize the whole beverageware category (travel mugs, water bottles, tumblers, kids bottle, etc.) In 2014, we were acquired by Newell Rubbermaid and we continue to develop innovative solutions for everyday needs.


Ignite started as a small entrepreneurial operation brainstorming and engineering our products in a historic office in the West Loop of Chicago. Now we, and the office, may be a little bigger but our attitude is still the same. Our office is full of passionate people who thrive in a fast-paced environment. Collaboration is ingrained in our day to day activity. Whether you’re in Engineering, Sales, Consumer Care or Marketing; everyone’s opinion counts. Sure, it may lead to some passionate…let’s call it dialogue, but it’s all in the name of making the best product we possibly can for you.

What we’re looking for

As we mentioned, Ignite began as a start-up and, despite a bigger office now in the Chicago Loop, we’ve kept that same mindset. We’re hungry, determined and hard-working individuals with a passion for what we do. These traits are evident in all of our employees and this is the type of individual we are looking to hire. We’re constantly listening and researching to find the next solution to everyday problems you may run into. If you think you can help us solve one, please apply to one of our available positions below.
