A new way of urban neighboring.

venn is a pioneering urban development startup that elevates city life and transforms neighborhoods into thriving communities. We have built the first scalable and replicable model of urban neighborhood revitalization, bridging real estate and smart technology to encourage human to human connections and promote community engagement.

Operating by the motto “if they build it, they will stay” our platform offers a holistic living solution including homes, shared spaces, local services and community activities. We reduce friction in everyday life, allowing venn members to invest in real-life social interactions. Everyone becomes an active participant in their community and drives a positive transformation for the whole neighborhood.

Our first three neighborhoods are live in Tel Aviv, New York and Berlin - with plans to launch in every major city over the next five years. Our global workforce spans 3 continents: an operative HQ in New York; a R&D center in Tel Aviv; local operations nested in our neighborhoods. As we scale at speed we are looking for the world’s brightest to join us and transform the way people live in cities. We are well funded with an impressive roster of investors and advisors.

We use GraphQL for our data layer, React with Redux on the client side and React Native for our mobile app. We like to automate everything - using CircleCI for CI/CD process and building things from scratch free of legacy limitations (well, almost…).

We are currently looking to fill the following roles: 

  • Front End Developer
