The Role

At Kasa, we’re building the operating system for hospitality at scale. We host hundreds of thousands of guests per year over millions of room nights, and we’re only just getting started. We are looking for our inaugural Senior Data Engineer to help us leverage business-critical data across the entire organization.

  • Work closely with Data Science to apply & productize machine learning models
  • Help be a thought leader in our data warehouse design & structure


  • 5+ years of data engineering experience, with at least a year in a senior role
  • Ability to operate as an owner – with meaningful support but minimal process
    • Our engineers take full ownership of the product areas they are working on and are fully empowered to make decisions across the stack.
  • Strong proficiency in Python or server-side Javascript
  • Knowledge of a scientific computing language (such as R or Python) and SQL
  • Experience deploying and maintaining cloud-based infrastructure (AWS preferred)
  • Professional experience with relational and non-relational database technologies like MongoDB, MySQL, Postgres
  • Experience with serverless architectures such as Lambda, Fargate, ECS, and EKS.
  • Experience with agile methodologies and rapid iteration cycles.
  • You have a strong EQ and are able to generate deep empathy with guests and operating team members which enables you to truly listen and implement their product feedback.

Plus if…

  • Have production experience with Node.js server framework
  • You have worked in a high-growth startup environment
  • Passion for sharing knowledge, mentoring code, and improving engineering processes
  • You have a passion for hospitality, travel, and/or adventure

In one year, you will succeed at Kasa by having:

  • Built data pipelines that retrieve and consolidate data from multiple sources
  • Meaningfully reduced data discrepancies across our systems
  • Helped structure and transition a new data warehouse
  • Educated others in Engineering and Business Intelligence to understand our data types and flows, from Production to analytics suite.


  • Remote Work: With flexibility as a core value, and over three-quarters of the team working remotely, Kasa employees are able to work from anywhere!
  • Kasa Travel Credit: We love to travel! Kasa employees get an allowance of free stays with us in any of our locations, plus a 50% discount on any nights for friends and family
  • Generous Stock Option Plan: We believe the success of our business should be shared with our team. As you grow with us, we increase the opportunities for you to become part-owners of our company.
  • Flexible PTO: Full-time exempt Kasa employees are encouraged to take time off as they need and see fit, ensuring that it’s not disruptive to their work.
  • 401(k) plan: As you invest in yourself and your future, Kasa invests in you too: we match 50% of the first 4% of deferred salary.
  • Competitive Salary: We offer base salaries at or above market rates plus additional earning opportunities based on the position
  • Health Coverage: We’ve invested in comprehensive health insurance options to help when you need it most

Who We Are

Kasa is building a global accommodations brand unlike any other. We took the best that hotels and short-term rentals had to offer and created a new class of hospitality that is well priced, trustworthy, and that offers a large selection of great locations. Our guests enjoy seamless check-ins, spacious apartments, and attractive amenities, helping them feel right at home. If anything comes up, our remote guest experience team is available 24/7, ensuring our hospitality is always felt, though rarely seen.

Behind the scenes, we build technology that combines with our innovative operations to grow a globally scalable offering that delivers high-quality stays. Our products and systems unlock unparalleled flexibility to operate anywhere from a few Kasa to a few hundred Kasas in any type of building, in just about any location. We currently have Kasas in over 17 states and are expanding into new markets all the time.

All of this is made possible by our team members, each of whom plays a critical role in fulfilling our vision and mission. We strive to foster a culture that values feedback, support, and collaboration throughout the organization. As a remote-first company, we work hard to bridge the gap of distance through initiatives that foster connection across Kasa. A few examples include lively All-Hands meetings, department get-togethers (online and in-person), and teamwide celebrations of important milestones. We offer benefits that encourage team members to stay at Kasa properties to experience our product firsthand and meet local team members when nearby. Guests are crucial to Kasa’s mission. Accordingly, every new Kasa team member gets trained in our Guest Experience Akademy during their onboarding.

Our team is fortunate to have diverse backgrounds, personalities, and experiences united by a commitment to excellence and passion for our industry. If Kasa’s vision and culture speak to you, and you’re up for the challenge of building a company on the cutting edge of real estate, we would love to have you on our team!
