Working alongside our Head of Strategy, the Strategy Associate will be charged with helping our organization continue to disrupt and define the future of the Real Estate industry. She will help lead the development and execution of our strategic priorities. In addition, she will become a subject matter expert on real estate-as-a-service and all adjacent opportunities, with an eye toward the exploration of new products, services, and markets. Finally, she’ll work cross-functionally (as both leverage and thought leader) to bring these opportunities to life, partnering with Product, Marketing, Operations, Property, Growth, Finance, and People teams to launch, test, track, evolve, refine and execute on new products and services. Knotel’s team embraces curiosity, integrity, hospitality and tenacious problem-solving, and the Strategy Associate will contribute to this culture while pushing us to innovate and do our best work.
