We are Scoot

We make it easy, fast, and fun for you to get where you need to go in the city, riding a scoot! Scoots are shared, electric, smartphone-activated motor scooters. If you can drive a car and ride a bike, you can scoot!

We make life in the city better

Scoots are fast, cheap, and easy to park, so they are good for you. They are also clean and efficient so they are good for the air and the climate. And they don’t take up much space on the street, which is good for everyone else.

We are passionate and dedicated

We are city slickers, gear heads, techies, tree huggers, and teachers who love our jobs, love our riders, and love the way Scoot is changing how we all get around the city.

Scoot is led by Michael Keating (Founder, Chief Executive Officer), Mike Waltman (VP of BD, New Markets & Fleet), Sunaina Seelam (VP of Finance), and Mike Burk (VP of Product). Our User Acquisition Manager is Carly Keller, our Event Marketing Manager is Jasmine Wallsmith, our Visual Designer is Matt Wujek, our Head of Instruction is Polo Black Golde, and our Rider Reps are Izzy Knopper, Russell Lauletta, Lauren Naftal, Sarah Katz-Hyman, and Carmen Guan. Our fleet is managed by Lead Vehicle Engineer Maitland Kelly, Supervising Mechanics Chris Paz, Jimmy Whittemore, and Lester Torres, Supply Chain & QA Manager Parker Ross, Fleet Administrator Andy Jenks, and Field Technicians Bob Scott, Trevor Ingraham,  Anders Larson, Kris Olson, Tim Tobiason, Jason Wolfe, Erique Gigante, Dave Lieberman, Korey Perkins, Gianluca Mazzarini, James Barron, Jake Spangle, John Paul DiTomaso, and Matt Roth. Our software is written by Engineers Andrew Torman, Charlie Depman, Josh Magnum, and Terry Tsai, and our app was created by Interface Engineer Christian Walker. Loren Passmore engineers our hardware. Our locations are kept open & operating by Eli Saddler, our Head of Network & Public Affairs, along with Andrea Frias, Stefan Marti, and their team.

Sometimes people spell our name wrong. Now, if we could, we’d be shouting ‘WE LOVE SCOOT!’ from the top of Sutro Tower every day. (NOTE: if you’ve actually done this, let us know because that’s awesome!) Even then, our friends might still ask, “Wait, how do you spell that?” Skoot? Scooot? Sccot? Sccoott? Scoot Scoot? Scootti? Scooy? Scoote? ScootSF? S.C.O.O.T? Scootapp? Scootnetworks? Scoot net? Scut? Scuut? Scüt? The Scoot? Schooter? Xcoot? Scott? Scoott? We’ve heard ‘em all. And we’re here to say, let’s keep it simple, and keep it Scoot-y — it’s just how it sounds: Scoot.
