Help rethink the experience of renting an apartment
Flip builds tools that make it easier and cheaper for owners to keep apartments filled and for renters to access housing. With our platform, we're making moving into and out of a space as easy as deciding where you want to go. And we'd like your help.
Craft the core user-facing Flip product experience.
Grow relationships with landlords and property managers.
Run the engine that drives Flip.
We work a bit differently here.
We value deep focus over collaboration
Collaboration is necessary and can be great, but we're wary of too much of it getting in the way of productivity. At Flip, you'll find private dedicated workspaces, a quiet environment, and a distinct lack of regular meetings. We're flexible on in-office employees working from home, and you can work whatever hours are optimal for you.
We value small, high impact teams
The Harvard Business Review found in 2019 that smaller teams were more likely to disrupt current ways of thinking. We select few, extraordinary people to join our team. We give them more ownership and freedom in their respective roles than their counterparts at similar companies.
We value saying no
We don't want to build everything for everyone - we're always finding new ways to focus our energy and time on a smaller group of higher impact tasks. Saying no to feature requests is as important as choosing the features we do decide to work on. You won't find our engineers spending hours on support for Internet Explorer 8.
We want you to work on things that excite you
Even the most exciting core responsibilities can become humdrum after a few months, that’s why we encourage our team to spend 20% of their time on something new that gets their creative juices flowing. Even if you don’t take us up on this, we have hackdays where regular work is frowned upon.
A small team means we have more flexibility than most. At Flip you’ll get to pick out whatever tech setup you prefer - from computer to monitors to headphones to keyboard and mouse, whatever works best for you, we'll get it. You'll get a dedicated private wrap-around-desk workspace at our Williamsburg, Brooklyn office with Gigabit fiber internet. We'll stock the kitchen with whatever beverages and snacks you prefer -- just say the word.
We also cover the basics:
Medical, dental, and vision insurance
Flexibility to work from home
We have some of the best investors in the world backing our team.
What We're Up Against
There’s a graveyard of startups that have tried to bring apartment rental transactions online, and they all failed for one big reason: selling new things to landlords is next to impossible. We’re bringing a new experience - one that consumers already enjoy in retail, food, and travel - into an industry whose incumbents don’t care about new experiences.
That’s why it’s so important that we start by building an extraordinary experience for renters. Whether they’re looking to get out of their lease or into a new one, we want every Flip user to feel like they’re walking on air after they use us.
