The Guild is a new hospitality concept that empowers travelers to experience their destination as a local, while enjoying the soft sheets and fancy amenities they've come to expect from a boutique hotel. Think of us as one-part eclectic home, one-part boutique hotel, and one-part college friend who takes you to the secret spots and hidden gems.
Since our March 2016 launch, we've been off to a blistering start. We've raised a few bucks, grown our revenues to a scale unimaginable to most 2-yr-old startups, and posted some downright glorious unit economics.
We're proud of the business we've built using only third-party tech. However, this resourcefulness comes with its downsides. Namely, a daisy chain of interconnected systems. On a good day (read: 30 days / month), these systems communicate seamlessly with one another. However, on a bad day when an issue arises, it affect our most basic business functions.
On the flip side, these systems generate massive amounts of valuable data which can be used to improve our business. We’ve recently begun feeding this data into our data warehouse and using it to power our Business Intelligence tool, Looker. We’ve already uncovered earth shattering insights (at least in our humble opinions) and we’re only just scratching the surface.

- your team -
We're a group of people who take our work seriously, but never ourselves. We celebrate weirdness, work our asses off, and enjoy the journey. We all wear multiple hats and are working on at least 5 projects at a time. Life is never boring here. We're risk takers. We care about each other and lend helping hands all day, every day. We say no to politics and drama!
