Looking To Move People?

Who is Kaptyn?

Since 2016 we’ve been on a mission to make transportation more efficient, enjoyable and accessible. We started by creating an innovative software suite to help transportation companies manage their operations. It was a good start, but we knew that we could have a bigger impact. So, in 2019 we decided to purchase two of the best fleet operations in America and combine them into a force for change. In 2020 we will unveil the future of transportation and are looking for passionate team members to join us to advance our mission. Our commitment to creating a better experience in a better way is fueled by a belief that the transportation industry needs to focus less on eliminating drivers and more on empowering them. We are also dedicated to making every ride as sustainable and enjoyable as possible, while being a model for other companies to emulate.

We have big plans, but changing the world isn’t easy. We believe that having the best team in the world is the key to our success. Think you're up for the challenge? If so, we'd love to hear from you! Kaptyn is seeking enthusiastic team members to provide corporate support to our fleet of traditional taxis, limousines, shuttles and new eco-friendly vehicles. You’ll enjoy training along with competitive pay and benefits as a Kaptyn employee.
