About Hometime: 

We make managing short-term rental properties easier. We eliminate the need for homeowners to self-manage their Airbnbs and we support local property management experts to work alongside us and handle everything on the ground. Our easy-to-use technology provides the infrastructure that the short-term rental market has always needed and it exists to deliver better results and transparency for everyone. We know where tech is needed and where humans are wanted - it’s what makes a great experience for guests.

We’ve built the future ecosystem of short-term rental property management in Australia and New Zealand and since we started seven years ago, we’ve generated more than $100m in bookings. We’re proud to have a strong relationship with Airbnb and we were their first official partner in Australia. We’re backed by some of Australia’s most prominent and respected venture capital firms. It’s an exciting time to join a growing team and lay the foundations of our future success.
