Oh, did you just ask about what rad things our team does?! We got you. Every Monday morning you’ll get to catch up with the team over Brooklyn Bagels, and on Friday afternoon we always celebrate wins over drinks and board games with a team that has an incredible amount of camaraderie and determination. We want someone who is motivated to be a foundational member of a fast growing PropTech startup. C'mon, smash that apply button.
