Renting physical spaces is the world's oldest subscription service. People spend a lot of money every month for an experience that is outdated, inconvenient, analog, impersonal, and leaves a lot to be desired. Latch is working to make every building better, and while we've methodically executed this mission since our founding with great success, we're just getting started.
Leveraging our knowledge from companies like Apple, BCG, and IDEO, we’ve rethought how people interact with space. Latch delivers a full-building operating system designed to help owners, residents, and third parties like guests, couriers, and service providers seamlessly experience the modern building. We’ve done this by combining software, devices, and services into a holistic platform that make spaces more efficient, enjoyable, and profitable.
At our core we have always been and will always be a product company, and more than half of our employees work in product development roles today.
We approach our work with care and a sense of duty, to make the world a better space.
We pursue excellence. Our ability to persevere together allows us to go beyond expectations.
We believe in the strength of team over self. We embody empathy and respect. When disagreements arise, we communicate and commit.
Trust is the foundation of every strong relationship. We act and communicate with honesty and care.
We believe in the power of a diverse team. We embrace everyone’s differences and strive to create safe and welcoming spaces for all.
We have a vision for a better future and a desire to lead the way. We learn as we go and are unafraid of taking deliberate risks while remaining flexible to reach our goals.
We believe everyone’s privacy is sacrosanct. We base each decision on our commitment to protect all information shared with us.
