Bringing AI to the housing industry.
Lead Software Design Engineer
MeetElise is VC-backed company bringing AI to the housing industry.
Our first product is an AI leasing agent named Elise who already converts 65% more prospective renters to residents than a human leasing agent alone. She answers questions and schedules tours 24/7 and is so human-like that renters say they’re “here to meet Elise” when they show up for a tour.
Our customers already include some of the largest apartment management companies in the U.S. and they don’t want us to stop with leasing apartments - we want to develop AI for the rest of their apartment management business.
We’re on a mission to make property management more efficient and make good housing available to everyone. Will you join us?
