Jobs with Naked Apartments

We're a small team - creative, self-motivated, easygoing - out to simplify renting. Our company is growing fast and already taking a big bite out of our #1 competitor's juicy NYC revenues, but we've set our sights on much bigger goals.

When you work for Naked Apartments, you'll work in one of our satellite offices – your living room. We enjoy the benefits of working from home, and plan to continue doing so even as the team grows. Say goodbye to traffic, subway crowds, office distractions and endless meetings, but be prepared for aggressive goals, challenging deadlines and the satisfaction of quickly deploying beautiful products to customers.
