Why work at Kinetic

We are building a smart safety wearable (yes, hardware) with analytics platform to reduce workplace injuries in manufacturing, logistics and last mile delivery. We take pride in reducing OSHA claims over 50% at our customers, and in bringing industrial workers safely back home to their families. Our mission is to reduce one million injuries by the end of this decade! We are just getting started with a great opportunity to build and make an impact.


Kinetic is an award-winning startup, founded in 2014 and last raised Series A, building connected safety wearable products for the industrial workforce. Our experienced team is backed by top tier investors and insurance companies who share our passion for better predicting and reducing workplace injuries, and protecting workers during the pandemic.

Increasing workplace safety in industrial environments is a massive challenge. We’re not in this to be a “cool startup” but to have a profound and long-term impact on the lives of industrial workers that are key to our economy and our lifestyle: they manufacture our products, deliver our packages, mine our metals and build our homes. They deserve the best technology out there and you’re going to help us put it in their hands.

COVID transformed the world and our company. We extended our IoT wearable technology to help with contact tracing and social distancing in warehouse environments increasing demand for our product by over 10X in 6 months.
