About Zeus

WHAT WE DO

Zeus partners with homeowners to transform their homes into desirable destinations for business travelers. We design, furnish, and outfit the home up to our business-class standards. We keep the property in tip-top shape and provide high-quality corporate residents while the homeowner sits back and collects a rent check.

Our typical resident works at a small business and is looking for a quality home to stay in for 3 months. They do not want to deal with the hassle and unpredictability of a peer-to-peer marketplace. With Zeus, they can book a beautiful home online quickly and know our customer service team will be there if they need them. Our homes are designed to be somewhere you want to live for a long time.

OUR VISION

Premium housing for business travelers is just the start for Zeus. Our mission is to be the most trusted housing company in the world. We want to transform what it’s like to find and live in a home. It should take a few minutes to find a house, not a few weeks. Home maintenance issues should be fixed in hours, not months. You should be able to get everything with your house done with beautiful and easy-to-use software.

We firmly believe that “software is eating the world” and housing will be no exception. We write custom software to run every part of our operations: home selection, pricing, logistics, customer acquisition, and personalized customer service. As we scale from hundreds to thousands of homes, automation, data, and AI will enable our team to move faster and smarter than the competition.

WHY JOIN US

Solve a real pain point — Housing is something that touches everyone. It's where you spend the majority of your time. We have gotten used to it being a mediocre experience. Our customers are delightfully surprised by our focus on quality, convenience, and customer service. These are generally lacking in the housing industry. We can make it better and have a huge impact on the world.

Huge market — There is no bigger market than housing. Furnished housing is a huge, $10B market that is ripe for disruption. The incumbents are surviving due to existing relationships and haven't adapted to an on-demand world. Using software, we can offer a superior product at lower costs.

We are focusing on the high end of the market where the margins are much healthier. We have excellent unit economics already and will be able to expand them over time. We are not trying to grow our way into a business model. We are growing a working business model and taking it to the next level.

Amazing team — You'll be joining a world-class product team that doesn't take itself too seriously and checks their egos at the door. Cultural fit is as important to us as technical ability. We believe in a positive, healthy work environment and taking care of everyone that works at Zeus.

The Zeus founders have all had previous exits and have worked in real estate and technology for over 10 years.

About the role

Skills: CSS, HTML, JavaScript

Zeus Engineering

Exceptional software is integral to our vision for changing housing. For external customers, we care deeply about delivering amazing user experiences. Housing can be a messy business, but our customers love our intuitive and easy-to-use software. We want to wow them and keep them coming back.

For internal customers, we write custom software to run every part of our operations: home selection, pricing, logistics, customer acquisition, and personalized customer service. As we scale from hundreds to thousands of homes, automation, data, and AI will enable our team to move faster and smarter than the competition.

The Role

You will work closely with a product manager and the head of a business department to achieve that department's goals. Your projects can range from improving tenant booking conversion to rearchitecting an internal workflow to launching a growth hack. Each department has a handful of engineers so you will be taking ownership of your projects and making a big impact on the business. You'll be building the front-end while pairing with a back-end engineer who will provide an API for you to consume. Every few months, engineers rotate among the departments to gain expertise in different parts of the business and our codebase.
