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 are 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.
Bird is passionate about solving last mile transportation. Our product gets people out of cars and where they need to go, all while having fun and using renewable energy. Our business is multi-faceted and requires managing & scaling cloud services, complex technical operations such as fleet management, provisioning tools, and more. We are developing a global platform from the ground up to meet today and tomorrow's transportation needs. Help us build, scale and operate our platform to ensure that we are a service that our customers can count on 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year!
