About MeetElise

MeetElise is on a mission to revolutionize the housing industry by making good housing more accessible through innovative technology. At MeetElise we use machine learning to address the underlying cause preventing significant advancements in affordable housing: operational costs. By automating the leasing and management of apartment homes, our talented team of engineers and scientists are creating a groundbreaking, low cost operating model that allows for the development of new housing at scale.

Our first product is an AI leasing agent named Elise that 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.

MeetElise is well-funded by VCs, strategic real estate investors, and excited customers. Our technical cofounders are from MIT and the University of Cambridge, and our talent is drawn from the world’s top universities and companies, creating an intellectually vibrant team driven to make a difference.

We’re working to build the future we want to live in: a future where housing is affordable, powered by technology, and accessible to all.

Our culture is inclusive, and we emphasise creativity, accountability and individual agency.

About the role

MeetElise is growing quickly and you’ll be building out the infrastructure for 24/7 service for our first million apartments and beyond. Your work will make a direct and meaningful impact on a product used by thousands of people a day.


What you'll do

  • Build our core software platform 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 services that effectively scale our data integrations with property management systems and communication tools.
  • Propose meaningful improvements to our software architecture and design patterns.
  • Leverage automating testing and continuous integration / continuous delivery in order to rapidly iterate on our product.

Why join

Growth and impact. As a leader in a small team, you’ll be directly transforming 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 well-funded startup that’s scaling quickly. You will identify how we can grow on a daily basis, and then execute on it. Failure is encouraged: you’ll learn what works when you succeed and what doesn’t when you fail. You will always know that your manager would fight to keep you on the team. At every step, your innovative and compassionate teammates will be here to support you. Collectively, we’ll be figuring out the path to serving millions of apartments.

About you

  • Have 5+ years of professional experience writing, delivering, supporting, and debugging production software
  • Have a mastery of Java or Python
  • Have worked with several modern technologies / libraries
  • Have Bachelor's or Master's degree in computer science (or equivalent)

You might also have:

  • Front-end skills in JavaScript, using a framework (React preferred)
  • Linux/Unix experience
  • AWS experience


We’re seeking top talent and expect our teammates to make a significant impact to fuel our growth. We want to ensure that we promote creativity and innovation by offering comprehensive benefits, including:

  • Top of your market salary and stock options
  • 100% medical, dental, and vision coverage
  • 401k benefits
  • We have an unlimited vacation policy, and actively encourage each other to use it

  • Flexible working hours - we look at output, not hours. 

We'll cover relocation packages from outside of the Greater NYC metro area - we'll make the move exciting, not painful.
