About Us

Airkit began in 2017 when co-founders Adam Evans and Stephen Ehikian got fed up with bad customer experiences.  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.

Located in Redwood City, CA, our company is on a mission to empower companies to build experiences people love. We are looking for passionate individuals who want to help build a company from the ground up.
