We've created a product for developers to write better code faster. Currently available for Python, Kite's smart autocompletions suggest code as developers type — similar to Gmail's Smart Compose, but for code. Programmers who use Kite experience a 20% increase in their coding velocity.

Kite is well-funded by top investors in Silicon Valley, including the founders of PayPal, Stripe, Palantir, and Dropbox to name a few. We are looking to expand our 15-person startup with talented individuals who are interested in joining an early stage startup. Our team is growing rapidly and we hope you'll grow with us too!
