ABOUT KIKO

The world of real estate is broken - landlords, renters, and agents have to live in a system that is boring, inefficient, and expensive.
Kiko builds real estate tools and housing infrastructure for the internet. We’re helping small landlords and the world’s biggest companies to rent out their properties in a few minutes online anytime, from anywhere.
We are for the rebels, the supportive, the impatient, and most of all, the obsessively user-focused. A culture built for builders and doers - people with unrelentingly high standards who inspire others to do more and go further.
We're never satisfied with the status quo and unapologetically driven by pushing the boundaries of the possible. We move incredibly fast while never compromising on our extremely high-quality standards. At Kiko, it’s about what you do, not what you’re called. We want you to take what you’ve been hired to do, and deliver solutions better than we've ever imagined.
Kiko was founded by Val and Tony, who met while expanding Revolut to millions of people. We're one of the fastest-growing Proptech companies in Europe and our team has previously worked at some of the best technology startups (Revolut, Blockchain.com, Yandex, and Kaspersky). Kiko is backed by Seedcamp and some of the finest investors in the European tech scene.
