KYTE

About us

Kyte is a technology platform that brings seamless delivery into the rental car experience. We are building the most compelling and customer-centric way to rent a car. With our value proposition of an easy car rental delivery experience with consistent & approachable support, we saw record growth throughout COVID19, and are now doubling down on gaining market share.

We recently raised more than $9M in venture funding from some of the best investors in the industry (amongst others, investors in Auto 1, Bird, Lime, DoorDash, Flexport, and Slack).

At Kyte, we love what we do and we believe our diverse team of ridiculously ambitious individuals is what makes our company great. Together, we are mobility enthusiasts that have an assortment of wide-ranging backgrounds from Stanford, Berkeley, MIT, TUM, Uber, BMW, McKinsey, and others. 

We are headquartered in the sunny, San Francisco Marina district where we enjoy Bay views, good food, and a proper sound system for those late night working sessions. We have opened our second home strategically close to Oktoberfest in Munich, just 5 min from the Central Station in the beautiful district of Nymphenburg.

We offer competitive compensation, significant equity, and the ability to shape a big vision from early on. We are laser focused on bringing on talented individuals that are aligned with our value and mission, to create a magical rental car experience from end to end.
