About Kin

The difficulty in finding housing that can accommodate families in cities, the lack of kid-friendly spaces, and the rising cost of childcare all make living in a city more difficult for families. Forming relationships with other families not only fosters a richer social life but allows you to share in the joys and burdens of raising children, while also fraying many of the costs associated with raising children. Members of a community can also better support each other, whether they’re recommending a great pediatrician or empathizing about the struggles of potty training. Kin is a housing platform founded on the belief that families live better when they’re part of a strong community. Powered by technology, driven by community, Kin is tailor-made to help families live better in cities. 

Kin is a partnership between real estate companies, Tishman Speyer and Common. Working at Kin provides an exciting opportunity to learn from two established companies, while shaping the trajectory for Kin.

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

Because we do business with the government, we must reach out to, hire, and provide equal opportunity to qualified people with disabilities1. To help us measure how well we are doing, we are asking you to tell us if you have a disability or if you ever had a disability. Completing this form is voluntary, but we hope that you will choose to fill it out. If you are applying for a job, any answer you give will be kept private and will not be used against you in any way.

If you already work for us, your answer will not be used against you in any way. Because a person may become disabled at any time, we are required to ask all of our employees to update their information every five years. You may voluntarily self-identify as having a disability on this form without fear of any punishment because you did not identify as having a disability earlier.

How do I know if I have a disability?

You are considered to have a disability if you have a physical or mental impairment or medical condition that substantially limits a major life activity, or if you have a history or record of such an impairment or medical condition.
