Global Strategy Manager

London, England, United Kingdom · Strategy & Finance

Description

Airsorted’s mission is to build a global platform that makes it easy to share your home.

Why

At Airsorted, we believe that home-sharing is a force for good. It creates authentic and unique experiences for guests; and for hosts, the extra income enables them to do more of what they want. The problem is that for many homeowners, who don’t have the time or the expertise, home-sharing is not accessible.

Our core working assumption is that by removing the principal hassles of hosting - cleaning, laundry and key exchange - homeowners will be willing to share their home.

How

Airsorted uses technology to deliver hospitality at scale. We build:

Ways of working

Airsorted follows the Lean Startup methodology. On the technology side this involves fast deployment cycles and code reviews. The goal across the business is to innovate and validate key assumptions as quickly as possible and iterate constantly. The expectation is that no matter which team you’re in at Airsorted, your goal is to learn which actions result in meaningful improvement of our product and service.

We have a meritocratic culture in the company. This means that over time, Airsorted employees have opportunities to increase responsibilities and develop their skills and attributes.
