The people we share our lives with make all the difference. At Lyvly, we share more than just spaces, we share our lives and we call it shared living. We take the hassle out of communal living so our members can focus on giving time to each other and to themselves. We are looking for like-minded individuals who love this as much as we do :)
Lyvly is founded by a team of experienced and passionate entrepreneurs. Run by Phil Laney, Kim Hurd (founder and CEO of Tabl) and Alex Gruca (founder and CEO of Joivy) and backed by Sirj Khaliq (CTO of Climate Corp - sold for $1.1bn), Greg Marsh (founder of Onefinestay) and Simon Levene (founder of Mosaic).
We're seeking the next generation of people to join us as we hit an exciting next stage in our journey. As one of the first people on team Lyvly (there’s currently 15 of us), you'll be playing a pivotal role in shaping our future. This means you will be pumped by our mission and motivated by the desire to build something that will bring meaningful impact to people’s lives. It also means you are the sort of person who will run head first into the growing challenges an early stage startup faces and take responsibility for the impact you want to have.
So if you identify with words like bravery, risk, challenge, but while acting with empathy and patience...then read on...
