About Us:

We’re a real estate tech company reinventing accommodations the way ride-sharing reinvented personal transportation.
We design and operate locally inspired short term rental properties that offer a professional, reliable and delightful experience, far above what travelers get when they rent from an individual homeowner.
Our proprietary software and data platform sits at the core of our company. This technology drives our best-in-class margins through optimal site location and advanced revenue management. It also helps us deliver amazing guest experiences through thoughtful automation and personalization.
Why is this interesting?
The global accommodations industry is worth more than $1T/year, but it hasn’t kept up with the needs of today’s modern traveler. 
Hotels are great for small groups traveling for 1-2 nights at a time, but hotels don’t work as well for longer stays and larger groups. 
Our guests stay with us for 2 days, 2 weeks, 2 months, or longer, in versatile properties designed to accommodate many traveler types and groups sizes.  We’re proud to earn review scores higher than nearly every luxury hotel from guests who seek our properties out in 8+ domestic markets.
In 2018, we have the foundation to economically and efficiently grow 10x, both domestically and internationally.
Our team:
We are a fast growing team founded by veteran entrepreneurs and backed by a number of the largest and most respected VC’s in the world. Headquartered in downtown San Francisco, we're hiring top talent across all business units!
