Workplaces are changing; new employees have more complex needs, want more personalized and frequent interactions, while also demanding more independence and changing jobs more frequently. Companies can’t survive the future of work with yesterday’s management practices. Kiite uses machine learning and natural language processing to give employees more autonomy and be dramatically more productive.
Kiite emerged from the founding team of TribeHR and our founding team includes deep roots in the HR technology space including employment and investments in NetSuite, Oracle, Rypple, Dayforce, and Axonify. We’re a team that’s dedicated to building extraordinary workplaces, and we’d like you to join us. We care deeply about inclusion & diversity - we’ve written about it, spoken about it, and live it
