About Us

Airkit began in 2017 when co-founders Adam Evans and Stephen Ehikian wanted to enable leading brands to connect with their customers in a new, digital way.  As consumers of many products, they couldn’t understand why, in the age of big data, AI, cloud computing, and connected products, their interactions with companies were so impersonal, reactive, and time-consuming.   

The Airkit team previously founded and built RelateIQ (sold to Salesforce in 2014). We witnessed first hand how every aspect of the relationship between companies and their customers was changing. Everyone and everything is now connected, and customer expectations are rapidly increasing. 

Headquartered in Redwood City, CA, the company launched publicly in October 2020.  Since then, we have seen the rapid adoption & expansion of our product within leading Fortune 500 brands and hyper-growth businesses, world-wide.

We’re invested in creating a hybrid culture headquartered in Redwood City, CA. We’re currently looking for teammates who are excited about working in person 2-3 days a week with peers who are passionate about their work and the problem we’re solving. 

Position Summary

The problem space for no-code/low-code platforms is complex, and helping people maximize the power of those platforms is equally complex. As a member of the Developer Experience Engineering team, you’ll work on projects that support and enhance our Builder Studio, steer growth of the platform, and help us and our users better understand their experience with the Airkit through data and education. If you’re someone who’s obsessed with UI/UX, you may work closely with Design to architect improvements to our WYSIWYG editor or create seamless experiences using design systems. If you’re intrigued by full-stack development, you might work on data integrations, scalability and performance. If you’re drawn to user research and fast-paced experimentation, you may work on onboarding and growth initiatives.
