  • Deep understanding of system design, data structures, and algorithms and how to apply them to design pragmatic solutions;
  • Experience delivering distributed and high-volume backend services with high availability, low latency, and scalability;
  • Extensive experience working hands-on as a Software Engineer in an agile environment.

Who are you?

  • Team player;
  • Possess excellent interpersonal and communication skills;
  • Have excellent organizational and time management skills, and the ability to work on multiple projects at the same time;
  • Proactive;

Travel with the people you love. Group travel has never been this easy - check out our homes and locations across the country. Collectively, we’ve traveled to over 80 countries and know what matters most - creating an authentic experience. We believe the best travel accommodations are all about delivering an exceptional, unique stay and far too often property managers and hosts fall short on delivering a first-class short-term rental experience. AvantStay is here to change that by setting the new standard for short-term rental experiences. Our team is incredibly passionate about real estate, technology and the arts. We came together to build a revolutionary hospitality brand through the power of virtual tech automation in the short-term rental market. With offices in San Francisco and Los Angeles, we currently operate in 7 markets across the United States. Our proprietary tech algorithm and data experts identify partnership opportunities and automate operations through our virtual management system to maximize efficiencies and improve the overall guest experience.
