We’re a tight-knit and dynamic team of product experts, tinkerers, soccer ball kickers, squash players, world travelers, podcast listeners, skiers, and squatty potty-owners. We came together after renting 49 apartments in 7 years during which we realized how bad the renting process is. We decided to fix it. We learn fast and love working with and challenging each other. In our past, we’ve worked on products for big and small companies, including Google, Apple, Salesforce, FarmLogs, and Ticketmaster.
