ABOUT AIRGARAGE 🏙
AirGarage is repurposing the 30% of real estate in the average American city currently dedicated to parking.
We are building a future where real estate is digitized and can be transitioned from one use to another seamlessly on-demand, moving every piece of urban real estate toward its highest and best use.
We are starting with the $131 billion US parking real estate market because it is one of the most offline and mismanaged commercial real estate asset types.
As a full-stack parking operator, we automate the operation of parking lots and parking garages. We handle everything from advertising to collecting payments from drivers and enforcing against illegal parking. We already operate 150+ parking lots and parking garages across 30 US states and we are growing quickly.
We are backed by top tier investors including Andreessen Horowitz, Floodgate, Founders Fund, and angel investors who have founded or worked at companies like Uber, Opendoor, Flexport, and more.
THE ROLE 👩🏾💻
You will primarily be responsible for top-of-funnel business development, with the goal of maximizing the number of parking lots and parking garages that we are signing on through the commercial real estate broker channel.
This is a new growth channel for AirGarage. We have worked with commercial real estate brokers in the past, but only in an ad hoc manner and generally these initiatives were led by our CEO.
You will be taking over this function and will be responsible for defining how we leverage partnerships with commercial real estate brokers to create and maintain relationships with their clientele as a channel through which we can onboard new parking assets to the AirGarage network.
You will need to maintain consistent, tailored broker-facing communication and engagement efforts in order to convey the AirGarage value proposition to brokers, ease conveying our service to their clientele, work to open/keep open channels for deal flow, and ultimately, directly influence high-quality opportunity generation which results in new parking assets onboarding with AirGarage. You will work closely with our Operations and Sales teams to qualify broker-led opportunities and guide them through the process of beginning to work with AirGarage
