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.

Kik is headquarted in Waterloo, Ontario, and has offices in New York, Toronto and Tel Aviv. We're hiring! Check out our careers page at www.kik.com/careers

    Kik was founded in 2009 by a small but passionate group of University of Waterloo students. At the time, chat between Blackberry (yes, Blackberry), Android and iPhone users wasn't possible, so we wanted to break down barriers and build a company that would allow users to chat with whoever, whenever. Today, Kik is the best way to connect with friends, no matter where you meet them. But it’s also become so much more. As the only chat platform built especially for teens and as a clear leader in chatbots, Kik will become the central hub for everyday life for teens across the world as we grow. To date, we've raised $120.5M from Foundation Capital, RRE Ventures, Spark Capital, SV Angel, Tencent (maker of WeChat), Union Square Ventures, and Valiant Capital Partners. With millions of users and an incredible team, our plans are well under way.
