We are Hostmaker – nice to meet you!
Hostmaker is a Series B funded fast-growing business backed by institutional funding from technology, hospitality and real estate investors. We have scaled rapidly in just five years across major international destinations with offices in London, Paris, Cannes, Rome, Florence, Barcelona, Madrid, Lisbon, Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur and more to come!
We are revolutionising the homestay experience through our end-to-end property management service, providing thoughtful interior design to attentive hotel-style services. Not only do we offer memorable stays, we utilise our strength in dynamic pricing to deliver superior yields for property investors, landlords with multiple properties, and even individual homeowners.
We are an excited bunch as we’ve come in at #3 on Deloitte’s UK Tech Fast50 2018 and named as one of the 100 European start-ups to watch in 2019! Being recognised among such dynamic peers means the world to us, though we are still keeping our focus firmly on our mission to unlock the potential of every home.
What separates Hostmaker from other players in the home rental market?

A platform to easily book cleaning services, or organise for someone to meet guests at the click of a button (written in next.js)
A helpful mobile scheduling app for our housekeepers, drivers and our check-in staff, so they can stay on top of a busy and ever-changing timetable (written using react-native)
A dynamic tool used by our team of pricing experts to accurately price and list homes across multiple booking sites (Airbnb, booking.com, HomeAway etc) (written in react.js and python)
An algorithmic tool to optimise the schedule of our field staff, so that they can move around the city in the most efficient way (written in node.js and react.js)
