    Who we are

    Launched in 2018, kea is one of the fastest-growing companies changing the way restaurants operate. Originating in Mountain View, California, and now fully-remote, we are building a team that is excited about our mission: drive the world’s commerce by empowering restaurants to operate more intelligently and own their relationship with customers.

    The first product in our platform, kea Voice, takes orders over the phone at a high level of efficiency and consistency so that restaurants can focus on making delicious food.

    At kea, we live our values: We are one unit moving at high velocity. We play to win the long game. We are open and transparent. We are compassionate and care for others. As you review our job openings, keep our core values in mind. Your uniqueness is valued and differences of opinion, background, and ability are welcomed. If you think you'd make a stellar addition to the team, please apply!

    Life at kea

    We’re taking messy problems in a broken industry and building elegant solutions. Our team is truly first-rate, and we’re keeping it that way as we grow.

    Core Values

    Play to win the long game. We make decisions to optimize our long term gains vs. short term wins. We practice integrity and prioritize the team’s wellbeing in our decision making.

    Be compassionate and care for others. We care for each other and our customers. We have each other's backs in business and in life. Small acts of kindness go a long way

    Be open and transparent. We believe in facing reality. We are transparent with each other and believe in open communications to solve challenges. Speak up, we don’t shoot the messenger.

    One unit, high velocity. We are and always will be a unit. Our ability to compromise and adapt allows us to execute and move forward with velocity.
