About Zeus

Founded in November 2015 and based in San Francisco, California, Zeus is shaking up the $12b corporate housing industry through its unique strategy of leasing unfurnished, privately-owned homes and converting them into expertly appointed, full-service corporate housing units for today’s global professional.

We're passionate about delivering world-class customer service and becoming the most trusted provider of corporate housing on Earth. With more than 200 homes in the San Francisco Bay Area and Los Angeles, 17x revenue growth in the last 12 months, and over 100,000 nights booked, we are well on our way to realizing our vision.

Zeus has raised $13M in financing from Initialized Capital, Google Ventures, Bowery Capital, and Floodgate. The Zeus founders have all had previous exits and have worked in real estate and technology for over 10 years.

The Role

The design team is responsible for designing our online product experiences for each of our customer stakeholders: residents, landlords, and operations staff.

This is a unique role that will stretch and challenge you as a product and user experience designer to think holistically about the end-to-end Zeus product experience. You will work collaboratively with our product, engineering, and operations teams to create elegant design solutions for all of the key moments in our product experience (e.g. What is the ideal check-in experience for our residents? What is the ideal home inspection experience for our operations staff? How can we automate the home leasing experience for landlords?)
