Only Kik lets you connect with friends, groups, and the world around you through chat. Just ask, “What’s your Kik?” We believe the smartphone era represents a transformation as big as the rise of the PC or the creation of the Internet. Your smartphone is actually part of you: always on, always connected, and always with you. And your smartphone puts the world in your pocket, wherever and whenever you want it. We believe that chat is at the core of the smartphone era. Over 40% of American youth use Kik to chat, browse and share with their friends, putting Kik in a unique position. Our Promoted Chats and other marketing tools let brands engage their fans and followers in a whole new way. And for developers, we've built APIs and libraries to help optimize their web sites for mobile and for Kik. By building our messenger, our tools for brands, and our platform for developers, we believe we have the opportunity to dominate in chat. Interested in joining the team?
