WeWork Mission

WeWork is the platform for creators, providing hundreds of thousands of members around the world with space, community, and services that enable them to do what they love and create their life's work. Our mission is to create a world where people work to make a life, not just a living, and our own team members are central to that goal.

Technology Charter

WeWork is creating a layer of technology to power our vision of “space as a service”.  From identifying and designing a new location, to bringing that space to market in an elastic, easy-to-consume way, to seamlessly operating these spaces to delight our members, we are building state-of-the-art systems to automate, optimize, and enhance the experience.  The data we are collecting is being used to dynamically optimize utilization, pricing, even layout and form factor. This technology advantage has allowed WeWork to scale to 400+ buildings in 25+ countries, and will be our competitive advantage as the company continues to grow.

The Team

The mission of Product Offerings & Growth is to deliver technology that powers the growth of our core businesses, by providing the right products to the right people at the right price at the right time. It includes how we create product offerings out of SKUs, sellable inventory, and membership rules, at a dynamically optimized price. Product Offerings & Growth covers the entire journey of a member, from their first interaction with our website or a salesperson, all the way through providing the right account visibility and flexibility so they stay a member for life and grow with us.

Here are some examples of the objectives that our team is trying to achieve:

  • Making a complex transaction like buying a new office as simple as buying a book online.
  • Creating immersive, digital experiences that give customers confidence in purchasing an office without seeing it in person.
  • Enable regional marketing teams to tailor the website to suit the needs of their region.
  • Providing a predictable and consistent source of high quality sales leads to each of our markets around the world.

  • Align co-related systems across squads on common API patterns, practices, or other instrumentation
  • Motivate engineers on the squad to join or focus on set of initiatives.
  • Contribute to a positive work environment where teammates can freely and openly discuss their ideas
