Posted on Tuesday, May 23, 2023
Placemakr is a venture-backed startup on a mission to change the future of hospitality and home. With properties in four major metro areas (and many more coming!) we operate a platform that allows buildings to blur the line between hotels and apartments. Our platform is an all-in-one solution which includes property operations, customer acquisitions, and the tech stack to operate with more flexibility than any other company in the market. Our tech-enabled buildings create a one-of-a-kind guest experience and tremendous value in the underlying real estate. Whether a guest or resident is with us for three days or three years, these are more than just spaces to spend the night—they are a place to call home.
As General Manager, you will drive the overall execution (creation and ongoing ownership) of the operational excellence of your Placemakr property through all phases of the operation, including budgetary efficiency and the experience of everyone on-site – employees, Placemakr guests, building residents, third-party partnerships, and building ownership/management. You are evaluated through a combination of customer reviews, employee engagement, hotel performance metrics, and measurable contributions to revenue.
