- the low-down -

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 local 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’re adding new cities and locations all the time, and our team is doubling in size every 3-6 months.

All this excitement takes a ton of planning and coordination behind the scenes to pull off, and we’re looking to add a veritable “Wizard behind the curtain” to help us. This will be a crucial role in helping manage and foster growth, and offers the chance to work alongside a whole cadre of fun people that love what they do.

- 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!
