Procurement Analyst.

 

- 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 your 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’ve raised some money, added new team members every month, and expanded beyond our home market of Austin, TX.

Our continued financial growth will depend on expanding our footprint into new markets--in the last few months alone we've expanded into our second market (Dallas) and will grow into five more by the end of the year! To maintain our high degree of execution as we grow, we'll need to build a best-in-class Project Management team. That's where you come in.

- 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!
