We are Hostmaker – nice to meet you! We're an excited lot because we've just been in the news - http://www.forbes.com/sites/davidprosser/2016/01/0...

But usually, we are the directors behind the scenes while our hosts retain their starring role, getting to experience the wonder of sharing their home without the hassle of folding towels and handing out keys. We’re well on our way to world domination (or at least becoming the preferred hospitality management service for homestays worldwide).

Our Growth Story

  • The seed of Hostmaker was sown in 2012 when our founder Nakul and his wife Deepti first experienced the hospitality of Airbnb hosts on their travels to Rome, Rio and Jaipur. The engagement that these hosts had with the local community and how willing they were to go out of their way to make their stay memorable got them hooked. That's why when they bought their first home in London, they decided to give it a go themselves, hosting guests from around the world at their home. It didn't take long for the realisation to hit them - hosting Airbnb guests is a lot of hard work! From there the idea of Hostmaker was hatched.
  • Since then Hostmaker has spread its wings from London, to Rome, Paris and Barcelona, securing VC backing from well-known investors such as DN capital (making us sisters with the likes of Shazam and Happn). We continue helping hosts in need and grew five times the size in a year- one folded towel at a time.
  • As we move into 2017 we are really excited to undertake the challenges that we will face as we continue to grow, with some exciting projects to sink our beaks into (enough pigeon puns already?!). Our team is ready to become the best hospitality management service out there and looking for loyal, hardworking team players to join us!

  • We are an international team of talents coming from a multitude of different backgrounds : INSEAD, Business Schools, Hospitality and Hotels with a full array of passports: UK, US, Spain, India, France, India, Romania, Italy… we are an international bunch!
  • A young crowd with our average ages between 20-35 years old and our team mates who have chosen Hostmaker for their next challenge used to worked for established companies, consulting firms and exciting start-ups like: Intercontinental Hotels, Starwood hotels, Airbnb, Ocado, Deliveroo, OneFineStay, Deloitte, Leo Burnett, Prisma Media, TF1, LinkLaters, Marriott... you get the picture!

We give our team member an opportunity to create their role, to grow into it and to participate in the overall success of the business. We like to think that you’ll make a better job if you are happy and value teamwork and collaboration to get the job done! We don’t count on hours, just hard work, passion and excellent results.
  • We are looking for smart cookies, committed, reliable and dynamic team members.
