Our company

Deako Lighting, a Bloomberg top 50 Global Startup, is committed to making smart lighting accessible to the rest of us. 

Why do we have to run around our homes to turn off all the lights when we leave? Why do we have to get up out of bed to turn off lights we forgot? Why do we have to come home to a dark house? Why can’t we have our home match our mood, or ask our house to respond to us using our voice?

Until now, whole-home smart lighting has been relegated to multimillion-dollar homes, with complex installation, set-up, and support. It’s been confusing and way too costly for most of us to adopt.

Deako changes all that. We make affordable, powerful, yet simple smart lighting systems that enable you to control any light in your home from any switch, your phone, or your voice. They install like regular light switches and setup is a snap with our iOS and Android Apps. Its patent-pending modular light switch enables homeowners to try out smart lighting in a few areas before committing to a whole-home system and can click in an upgrade in seconds.


10%-20% of the time to Deako supplier and sub-supplier locations.

*This role requires that the applicant obtain necessary Visas and travel permissions to travel to China, Vietnam, Mexico, and other manufacturing locations as the need arises.
