About Occupier:

Occupier helps commercial tenants make better real estate decisions that drive the operational needs and growth of their business. We recently raised $5M from leading proptech VCs and are scaling our team rapidly to execute on our product roadmap.

An unprecedented convergence of major forces is upending the traditional norms of commercial real estate, creating an immediate opportunity for innovation in a multi-billion dollar market.

  • As of January 2022, all companies issuing US GAAP and IASB financial statements are required to comply with new standards.
  • The COVID-19 pandemic has forced companies to completely rethink their use of real estate, both near and long-term.

The current state of lease management software, consisting of off-line work and legacy tools that are 10+ years old, is ripe for disruption.

Occupier aspires to be the platform where all commercial real estate decisions are made, facilitating the access to data and collaboration required by all stakeholders that require it.

Our team’s unique combination of commercial real estate (JLL), proptech (VTS, ProCore, WeWork), and management consulting experience (Boston Consulting Group) positions us to understand and execute on the problems facing our customers.

We are looking for passionate, team-oriented professionals to join the Occupier team as we scale coming out of our recent raise.
