  • The Company

    Since its founding in 2010, the people at Kinestral have been perfecting electrochromic technology so that its performance and aesthetics are unequaled in the industry. Our Halio smart-tinting glass for the building industry is faster, brighter, more uniform — and it’s stunningly beautiful and natural. We marvel every time we’re in a room with Halio. But while Halio can now make buildings more sustainable, brighter, and healthier, we’re still just getting started.  We’re growing our talented team of physicists, chemists,  mechanical, industrial, electrical, and software engineers to help us continually advance our technologies. We’re also looking for non-technical people – sales, marketing, finance, business development, and so on. If you’re smart, curious, resourceful, driven, and have enough experience to make an immediate impact, send us your résumé.
