Who is Bird
At Bird, we’re on a mission to make cities more livable by reducing traffic and carbon emissions with an affordable, convenient, and eco-friendly transportation option. We planted roots in Los Angeles, California. Now, our fleet of electric scooters is available to riders in cities around the world for short trips or the “last mile” of their journey. In our first year, Bird launched in over 100 cities and provided over 10 million rides. And we’re only just getting started.

Our product gets people out of the cars and where they need to go, all while having fun and using renewable energy. We are developing from the ground up a global platform to meet today and tomorrow's transportation needs. Help us build, scale and operate our platform and IT operations to ensure that we are a service that our customers can count on 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and 365 days a year!
