We combine the best of both worlds in our eco-friendly apartments in Tallinn and Helsinki’s coolest neighbourhoods.

  • Identify key hospitality and real estate trends and facilitate knowledge sharing across the organisation

What we look for:

  • Ability to manage day-to-day operational issues, and agile problem solving skills
  • You have a self-starter mentality and results-driven team player attitude
  • Your analytical skills and attention to detail are excellent
  • Your oral and written communication skills are top-notch
