ABOUT AIRGARAGE πŸ™
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 πŸ‘©πŸΎβ€πŸ’»

At AirGarage, our mission is to transform cities through parking real estate. We believe these single-use spaces will be inevitably turned into multi-use hubs. At the same time, we're learning how this valuable real estate is being used, and building the infrastructure to push it towards its highest and best use.

Our accelerated growth, combined with millions of rows of data and an ambitious goal, brings many challenges. Even more so at an early-stage startup with constantly evolving products and scaling infrastructure. You’ll transform our once dorm room hacked together system into a beautiful, fine-tuned machine. From weeding out messy data, designing and implementing data warehouses for faster analytical speed and efficiency, to collaborating with engineering and product teams to design the optimal database architecture.

As a result of your work, you’ll enable almost every other data function at AirGarage from guiding internal strategy, to reporting never before seen insights to our partners.
You'll work with our Chief Data Officer, CTO, and CEO on a variety of high leverage projects.
If you are excited to become a foundational team member at a fast growing startup, we can't wait for you to apply.
