An Insider's view of Zumper

What are some social events your company does?

Virtual happy hours, weekly meditation, fitness challenges, Netflix watch parties, game nights, and coffee chats. My fave is a learning series called "Roomiez teaching Roomiez". It highlights our employees' hidden talents from tie-dying t-shirts to producing Tik Tok videos. It's really fun and informative.

Tina

VP People

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

Since there can be thousands of potential apartments to rent, we are constantly trying to improve the search experience for our renters by surfacing the most relevant content. When done right, good personalization balances removing the noise of irrelevant content and exposing users to things they might not have found on their own.

Mattie

Data Scientist

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

Our Finance team plays a critical role when it comes to assessing and directing company strategy. We are heavily involved in reporting on KPIs, performing analyses on key strategic initiatives, making recommendations on resource allocations all while effectively managing the runway we need to execute on our vision.

Khaled

Chief Finance Officer

What makes someone successful on your team?

I love being on the growth team because everyone is willing to help each other succeed. Whenever I’m having an issue or need a different perspective, I know I could go to any one of my teammates and they would take time out of their day to support and collaborate with me.

Senior Manager, PR
