A bit about us
We’re a venture-backed startup on a mission to change the future of hospitality and home. With properties in some of America’s most-loved cities, our unique platform allows buildings to blur the line between hotels and apartments. This all-in-one solution 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 one-of-a-kind guest experiences and tremendous value in the underlying real estate. Whether guests are with us for a night, a year, or somewhere in between, these are more than just spaces to spend the night—they’re a place to call home.
Our property team members bring our business to life at each building, focusing on execution, along with resident and guest experience. Our non-property team members support property execution and the evolution of other areas within our platform.
As our Guest Experience Associate, your job is to create and own an exceptional experience for each of our Placemakr guests from the moment they check in, throughout their stay and until they depart. Simply put, your job is to manage our beautiful space, deliver exceptional service, and delight our amazing guests.
This position will be located on-site at our property in New York, NY; the hourly rate is $20.00.
Scheduling can vary from 8-hour to 10-hour shifts per week between the core hours of 7:00am-11:00pm with some weekend availabilities.

  • Develop a strong working relationship with all of your teammates.
  • Be a leader by example and top performer to help your team achieve and maintain Placemakr standards for excellence, including employee engagement ratings, NPS scores, brand standards, consistently positive customer reviews, etc.
