Placemakr is a venture-backed startup on a mission to change the future of hospitality and home. With properties in five cities (and many more coming!) we operate a platform that allows buildings to blur the line between hotels and apartments.  Our platform is an all-in-one solution which includes property operations, customer acquisitions, and the tech stack to operate with more flexibility than any other company in the market. Our tech-enabled buildings create a one-of-a-kind guest experience and tremendous value in the underlying real estate.  Whether a guest or resident is with us for three days or three years, these are more than just spaces to spend the night—they are a place to call home.
Our property team members focus on bringing our business to life at each of our buildings with a focus on execution, and resident and guest experience. Our non-property team members focus on supporting property execution and the evolution of the other areas of the platform.  The non-property roles are remote-first with the option to work out of our DC or SF offices. We think in-person collaboration and bonding is extremely important, so our remote-first team members participate in quarterly in-person retreats with their teams at various locations across the U.S.
