Overview

Wheelhouse is a dynamic pricing platform for professional property managers and individual hosts.

Our dynamic pricing was built from the ground up, and helps hosts & owners earn 30% more from listing on Airbnb, HomeAway, TripAdvisor, and soon, many other channels.

Each day, we analyze billions of data points daily to empower hosts & owners with the data and insight they need to price and manage their listing(s) perfectly.

Our proprietary internal software and data science help SMBs run their business better, and also helps our team select high performing properties and operate them with maximum efficiency.  We were founded by a team of veteran entrepreneurs and is backed by some of the top VC’s in the industry and well known hospitality investors like Barry Stern from Starwood, Casper founding team investor.

It’s where real estate and hospitality converge, also described as the intersection of data science and interior design.

It’s a casual, dog-friendly office. We are currently a team of 24 (growing to 50+ this year), and looking for more great people to join our team.  We got a world class team of engineers including YC founders, former Google, Facebook, Amazon, Box, Salesforce, Expedia, bridgewater, etc.

Why join us?

We believe in how small teams work - iterating and learning quickly. We believe you do your best work when you’re working with a team you enjoy, leveraging your skills and experience to drive value, and focusing on new challenges that require new learning every day. Since we’re small, we can guarantee you’ll be doing a little bit of everything here.
