About Hostmaker

We are Hostmaker – nice to meet you!

We have $30m in funding and are backed by a great group of strategic investors who believe in the growth of the new category of travel accommodation – homes – and in our vision of unlocking the potential of every home.

Hostmaker is a tech enabled full-service home rentals management company in the proptech category, offering dynamic pricing expertise, thoughtful interior design and hotel-style operations for homes. We raised a Series B round in November 2017 and are backed by institutional funding from credible investors from technology, real estate and hospitality backgrounds.

Marriott Hotels, the largest hotel company in the world, recognised our industry leadership by selecting Hostmaker as preferred partner for its first foray into serviced homestays, introducing Tribute Portfolio Homes in April, 2018.

We have scaled rapidly in just three years to be the European leader with international teams in offices in major destinations – London, Paris, Cote D’Azur, Rome, Florence, Barcelona, Madrid and Lisbon.

Hostmaker was featured by Forbes as one of five fastest-growing British businesses to watch in 2016 and ranked #20 and then #11 by StartUps UK in 2016 and 2017, respectively.

About the role

You’ll be reporting into the FD, supporting them to drive change throughout our Finance division.

Our FD has developed a clear strategy, with some focus areas to improve the overall performance of the function. These changes are driven by common growing pains of fast-growth, VC backed startups. As such this is a great way to be a part of driving change from the inside of the business.

Specific requirements will include:

  • Agree priorities in process changes with FD to improve the overall performance of the finance function and commercial business structure
  • Develop an implementation/ change programme
  • Upskill team and develop training to embed change across the business

What we’re looking for

We are looking for someone who has experience in finance and change management. Experience in start-ups is an additional benefit. We’d expect someone to bring the following experience:

  • Understanding of a finance function, including regulatory and control processes
  • Experience in running change management projects
  • Understanding of a finance function and what good likes
  • Some experience in a start-up (preferable)
