Mar 13

We love Bikes!

We are a well-funded consumer-tech hardware startup based in Brooklyn, New York. Biking is our passion, and our mission is to make cycling easier by offering the public affordable and accessible e-bike technology. We are seeking talented and innovative thinkers to help us scale rapidly.

CLIP, our first product, is a portable propulsion device designed to enable e-bike functionality on regular bikes at a fraction of the cost and complexity of an e-bike or traditional conversion kit. CLIP was featured as a Top Innovation at SXSW 2021 recognized as a TIME Magazine 100 Best Inventions for 2020 and also won a Fast Company Innovation by Design Award last year. CLIP is the only product in the bike mobility upgrade category that is pure ‘plug & play’. And not to brag (well, maybe just a little)… CLIP is light, fits in your backpack & looks great charging on your desk.

At Clip, you will do the work you love, be yourself, and help make a positive impact on climate change and urban congestion, as well as enhance recreation and fitness by persuading people to bike further and more often. If this sounds compelling, a position at Clip may be the right fit for you!
