About Us:
Lyric is building the next great hospitality company. We design and manage premium short-term rentals, that combine the spaciousness of an apartment, the amenities of a 4-star hotel, the productivity of your favorite work space, and the creative inspiration of an artistic studio. Powering everything we do is a data-driven, proprietary software platform designed to inform every aspect of our operations - from location selection to inventory design, revenue management to personalized guest experiences. The global accommodations industry is worth more than $1T/year, but it hasn’t kept up with the needs of today’s modern traveler. Lyric is changing that. We set out to re-imagine what this future will look like, and we'd love to have you along as part of that journey!
