Berlin, Germany Full-time

Guten Tag! Nice meeting you!

We are OYO, the fastest-growing hospitality chain globally and our mission is very simple: creating quality living spaces to help people find an affordable place to stay everywhere they go. OYO is standardizing the experience both for guests and hotels by introducing technology to the currently broken affordable hotel industry.

Originally founded in India in 2013, we are already Asia’s largest and 3rd largest hotel chain worldwide and on track to become the world’s biggest hotel brand by 2023. By partnering with asset and home-owners we are providing travelers 23k+ exclusive OYO hotels across 800+ cities in 80+ countries at an affordable price.

At present we are valued over $10 Billion, backed by some of the world’s best investors such as SoftBank, Sequoia Capital, and Lightspeed Venture Partners and have been recognized as #1 LinkedIn Top Startups in Asia.

It’s time to continue this success story in Europe! We are now launching in Germany and are looking for you to join our fast-paced rocket ship! 

Germany is one of the most popular travel destinations in Europe, alongside very strong domestic travel also.  The market dynamics are ideal for OYO – a substantial supply of unbranded and independent hotels, high online penetration and huge demand for affordable accommodation. OYO is excited to add value to both owners and users, through its unrivaled technological, pricing and operational expertise.

If you are looking to work for a high-growth, disruptive and technology-led business that is looking to transform the hospitality industry then OYO is the business for you. You need to be a self-starter, who is ambitious and collaborative – someone who constantly strives for improvement and always looks for growth.
