Senior Product Manager

Smart Host is a B2B SaaS platform in the hospitality industry. We offer hotels a powerful yet incredibly easy cloud solution to put their guest data to work. We collect guest data from hotels and guests directly, clean and enrich it, while treating the guest’s privacy with the respect it deserves. All of this combined with data analysis takes our client’s guest communication and marketing efforts to a new level. Our typical clients are not necessarily tech savvy, so it’s on us to skyrocket them into the digital marketing age, by simplifying the experience to the maximum through great usability.

We are an early stage company run by experienced entrepreneurs– this is your chance to shape our product.
