Who we are
We’re technicians, software developers, mechanical engineers, athletes, veterans, students, dog lovers, and most of all–car lovers. We love a whiff of gasoline and we geek out about the torque provided by electric motors, as well as all of the beautiful accents that make these cars works of art. Above all we believe the world is a better place with vintage cars out on the road.
We strive to create a meaningful workplace at Kindred, which means something different for each of our team members. For some, it’s getting these immortal vehicles on the road. For others it’s the portion of revenue we donate to our local community for every vehicle sold. For many at Kindred, it’s the inclusive culture and diverse work environment we’ve created.
Kindred Motorworks builds vehicles that combine nostalgia, timeless design and character of the past with today's safety, reliability and performance.
What we do
At our design center on Mare Island in Vallejo, California we spend countless hours on every Kindred model prototyping and painstakingly evaluating thousands of design decisions that drive performance and reliability.
Our cars create joyful experiences for our customers and immense pride for our team. Consider joining the team if you share our interests. We are looking for retirees, MBAs, high school drop-outs, career changers- we don’t care, as long as you can match our passion and work ethic, get the job done, and are ready to have fun!
Our leadership team represents a diverse group of experienced leaders: ranging from successful B2B start-ups to large consumer brands. The areas of expertise include supply chain, technology, retail and aviation to name a few. Along the way, many of us have been restoring cars, racing on the weekends and gaining all the experience necessary to build and lead Kindred.
