Ongoing Freelance Writing Opportunity

Posted On: April 1, 2015


Media Organization: Zumper

Company Description

Zumper is a wildly ambitious startup tackling a problem that affects over 100 million renters across the US. We believe that renters shouldn't engage with technology only to search for their next home or apartment rental. We believe that you should be able to walk into an open house or appointment, pull out your phone, and make a binding application and offer for that unit right there. This is how the next generation of the rental market will function, and Zumper - with a unique twinned B2B and Consumer approach - is leading the way.

To accomplish this we have assembled a world class engineering and business team based in Soma, San Francisco, and have raised capital from a group of top-tier VC investors. In February 2014 we raised a $6.5 million Series A round led by Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers, having previously raised a $1.7 million seed round in 2012 from KPCB, NEA, Andreessen Horowitz, Greylock Partners, Crunchfund, Dawn Capital & xfund. We launched on stage in September 2012 in the finals of the TechCrunch Battlefield competition.

We are always searching for bright, passionate, hard-working engineers, designers and business leaders to help us build extraordinary products and revolutionize this industry.
