Job Type



Located in Austin, Texas, UrbanStay is a vacation rental property management company that welcomes guests to uniquely designed and curated homes that are just as exciting and fun as Austin itself. Our homes offer elevated stays that allow guests to live like locals! 

Our first UrbanStay property was an escape from the corporate 9-5 job. We founded UrbanStay to provide travelers with an experience we longed for while also freeing us from our cubicle jobs to explore new places, just like many of the guests we host. We find fulfillment in travel, adventure, and accommodating like-minded vacationers into our UrbanStay homes.

And with that mission and vision….we are growing. It turns out that being authentic, working hard, and taking bold action does work.

If you live and breathe Austin like we do and want to be a part of the adventure, keep reading.


As our Business Development Specialist, you will be a critical part of our team during the next growth phase. In this top-of-funnel lead generation role, you will hunt for and identify new opportunities throughout the Austin market to scale our portfolio of homes by increasing brand awareness and inspiring financial growth in existing and new revenue streams.

This role is not an end-to-end sales position. You will be laser-focused on generating leads to hand off to our sales team.

This is a part-time 1099 contract position. You will be paid a generous commission on each qualified lead that converts to an Urban Stay client.
