Job Description:

Who We Are* This role can be either fully remote or based in our SF HQ. We chose a location because some job boards require us to input one.Kasa is building a global accommodations brand unlike any other. We took the best that hotels and short-term rentals had to offer and created a new class of hospitality that is affordable, trustworthy, and in convenient locations. Our guests enjoy seamless check-ins, spacious apartments and attractive amenities, helping them feel right at home. If anything comes up, our remote customer service is available 24/7, ensuring our hospitality is felt, not seen.Behind the scenes, we leverage technology and innovative operations to build a globally scalable offering that delivers high quality stays. Our products and systems unlock unparalleled flexibility to operate anywhere from a few to a few hundred Kasas in any type of building, in just about any location. We currently have Kasas in over 17 states and are expanding into new markets all the time.All of this is made possible by our team members, each of whom plays a critical role in fulfilling our vision and mission. We strive to foster a culture that values feedback, support, and collaboration throughout the organization. As a remote-first company, we work hard to bridge the gap of distance through initiatives that foster connection across Kasa. A few examples include engaging All-Hands meetings, department get-togethers (online and in person), and teamwide celebrations of important milestones.
