We are Bike Citizens
Guided by our vision, about 25 people are working today on the development of our products. Although our company is no longer in its infancy, we have not lost our flexibility and special working atmosphere. We are able to organise our working day just as we like.
This includes activities like:
- Monday-morning team-breakfast 8:30-9:00
- Company fitness on Tuesday
- Team events (Bike Fest, climbing, buschenschank rides etc.)
What makes Bike Citizens so special?
4-day working week
Cycling means freedom, independence and healthy living; it’s exactly this attitude that we, as Bike Citizens, bring to cities everywhere. Our aim is to give users the possibility to contribute to the livability and engagement in cities through a growing bike culture. Consequently, we improve and optimise traffic infrastructure in cities with the knowledge of more than 450,000 users worldwide.
We saw that there was a need to communicate the fantastic advantages of cycling to people.
Where it all began…
Bike Citizens started with the aim of sharing valuable knowledge about cycling in urban areas. It was founded as BikeCityGuide in 2011 by the bike messengers Daniel Kofler and Andreas Stückl. Soon it has grown to employ more than 25 people and opened a second office in Berlin. Having started with a simple bike navigation app and a smartphone mount, the company nowadays focuses on cycling promotion, app technology and data analysis for cities.
