Location

Our office is in the heart of Flatiron, right near Madison Square Park and Gramercy Park. We think it's the best place to work in New York City.

An Insider's view of Resident

What’s the vibe like in the office?

The NYC office is one of the best parts of the company because we are such a beautiful cast of characters. We’re a smart but fun bunch and truly like a very diverse family. It has a laid back vibe and we love to goof around with one another. Basically you want to sit with us.

Anne

People Ops Partner

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

We're all required to wear multiple hats here. Because we’re spread out across the globe, seeking aid in a project is a lot easier than I ever imagined. You jump on a quick call or send a Slack message. The ability to start a conversation with someone across the world and get the answer you need (and more) keeps me in awe everyday!

Susy

Manager, Social Media

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

My career at Resident has elevated beyond my expectations. Since day one (when we were just 6 in NYC) my role at the company has evolved into what I call a full-stack marketer. If you thrive in a collaborate and red-tape free environment, where breaking the standards is applauded, then you’d love working here!

Junior

Head of Programmatic & YouTube

What is your vision for the company?

Our values are the core elements that shape our vision to not only be the industry leader in our space, but to be the top best in class organization where our folks will not only have long and meaningful careers but can also give back to our community. I feel privileged to be in a company that lives and breathes this vision as our north star.

Veracelle

Chief People Officer

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

Everyone at our company has a valid voice and opinion; Since we are all about testing ideas we've worked hard to create channels for feedback from team members. Ideas have directly affected product design both physical and digital as well as the marketing and creative strategy.
