Senior Product Manager

Job description

Sunroom is radically simplifying the way people rent their homes.


For the average renter, leasing a home is filled with stress and uncertainty. We have reimagined the end-to-end experience, so renters can self-tour properties, apply, & lease inside our app. Our partners, real estate agents, and property managers use our platform to take care of all the hassle from photos, yard sign setup, and marketing to back-office operations. Our platform gives full visibility into every aspect of leasing.


We have raised over $14 million from top-tier investors including Founders Fund Seed, Gigafund, and Tim Draper. Our investors have also backed the likes of SpaceX, Tesla, and Facebook.
