About Our Client

Our client is changing the way that commercial real estate (CRE) is done-disrupting a $15 trillion industry by becoming the modern operating system for CRE. They've invented the category of leasing and asset management, which allows landlords and brokers to take their entire leasing process online to maximize revenue and performance. Last year, they launched the fastest adopted new product in property tech. Their most recent acquisition is leading an entirely new category of software - tenant experience. They've also recently launched a new product which is already getting front-page references in the Wall Street Journal and quoted by Reuters, The Real Deal, Commercial Observer, and many more. Our success shows in our numbers-they hit "Unicorn" status in 2019 and today they have over 12 billion square feet of commercial space managed on their platform and have expanded to over 400 employees globally. It's an exciting time to join the company as we continue to grow rapidly and break records.

Our client's headquarters are in NYC, but they have major hubs in other cities including Chicago, IL, Toronto, CA, and London, UK.
