About MeetElise

MeetElise is on a mission to revolutionize the housing industry, with the ultimate goal of making good housing more accessible.

We use machine learning and natural language processing to create a realistic conversational experience for renters.

Our AI leasing agent named Elise converts 65% more prospective renters to residents than a human leasing agent. Elise answers questions and schedules tours 24/7 and is so human-like that renters say they’re “here to meet Elise” when they show up for a tour.

Our customers already include some of the largest apartment management companies in the U.S. 

MeetElise is a residential housing tech startup and is well-funded by VCs, strategic real estate investors and customers. We have just closed a Series A round, with $9M in total funding for the company.

Technical founders from MIT and the University of Cambridge.

What you'll do

  • Build our core conversational AI that automates the leasing process and helps our customers operate their apartment communities more efficiently.
  • Develop new features that increase value for our customers.
  • Design meaningful improvements to our ML Ops and data infrastructure
  • Propose meaningful improvements to our software architecture and design patterns.

Why join

Impact. As a leader in a small team, you will have the opportunity to really move the needle on our growth.

You’ll be learning and shipping constantly. 

You’ll be significantly changing how the housing industry works today with the ultimate goal of creating more housing opportunities.

It’s not often that you can get in on the ground floor of a funded startup that’s scaling. Every single day you will be challenged to identify how we can scale and execute on it. You’ll learn what works when you succeed and what doesn’t when you fail. Either way, the rest of the team will be here to support you. Collectively, we’ll be figuring out the path to serving millions of apartments.
