Homelike helps business travelers and expats feel at home in their

home away from home

We know from personal experience how complicated, expensive, and time-consuming it is to find temporary accommodation when moving to a new city for work. Hotels are too expensive for long-term stays and lack privacy and flexibility. 

 

Our objective is to make business travelers feel at home by providing a convenient booking experience, professional service, fully-furnished and sparkling clean homes with cooking facilities and suitable amenities in their new “home away from home”. Simply because they deserve it.

Booking furnished apartments as easily as hotel rooms

The temporary housing market is defined by offline processes and a lack of technology to efficiently manage multi-listings.

 

We’ve built a unique booking platform for business travelers and corporate travel managers alike, by creating a secure and convenient channel for landlords to market their inventory to corporate tenants.

Our Story

Our Founders have experienced long-term business travel and living in different countries and cities first-hand as expatriates. They realized that, in terms of technology and service, the long-term business travel industry was 15 years behind the hotel industry.

 

But necessity is the mother of innovation and so the idea for Homelike was born.

 

In 2014, Christoph Kasper and Dustin Figge launched the booking platform Homelike. Ever since, we continuously question, facilitate, digitize, and improve existing processes in the real estate and business travel industries.

Our Core Values

Our core values are more than just words – they are reflected in our daily work and firmly established in our company culture. As we are continuously growing, we strive to ensure that our company culture remains alive and well. Discover who we are, how we work, and read more about what our five company values mean to us!

Optimize for Happiness

by delivering WOW experiences.

Many people are life-long seekers of Happiness and aim to find a place that allows them to do what they enjoy each day. We at Homelike want to be surrounded by exactly those passionate people. We strongly believe that the origin of everybody’s individual success at Homelike is created by her or his passion for something such as a great company environment, the job position, one’s area of duties or elements like the business model, the industry, or a specific market segment.

Be Entrepreneurial

Done is better than perfect.

We’re not looking for “perfect” – we want to get things done and drastically improve our customers’ work and life. We encourage you to always keep a sense of urgency when it comes to making improvements. So keep walking with your eyes and ears open.“Being an entrepreneur” also encompasses responsibility and ownership.

Focus

Follow one course until successful - Do more with less.

While keeping an open mind for new ideas, we make sure to focus on the key levers that enable our growth – for our business as well as every individual employee. We want to be the leading company in our space and WOW our customers. That requires a strong focus on everything we do. Focus on working on the right things at the right time with the right resources.

Learn

Pursue learning and allow failures.

It is important to us and all Homelikees to grow both personally and professionally – by constantly challenging and stretching oneself.
We do not ever want to find ourselves in the “We always did it like this”- environment but we want to challenge our work. Embracing failure and learning from mistakes can make us more successful and faster in our future decision-making.

Deliver Quality

There is only one boss: The Customer.

We are a customer-centric company. That means we create great customer experiences in order to drive repeat business, customer loyalty, and engagement. We treat our customers with respect, regardless of origin, nationality, religion, race, gender, or age, by providing great service and building relationships.

Homelike is on a mission to build the #1 online marketplace for corporate housing. We’re a diverse bunch of dedicated people from more than 10 different countries. 

 

Our office sports coffee machines on every floor, fridges stocked with Kölsch, and we have glorious views over Cologne with the Dom Cathedral in focus. 

 

Every week we get together to share what each department has accomplished and is working on (with a beer in hand, of course) because we’re all one big team. And, while we work hard, we also find time to play hard, too – with bi-annual company events that may involve dressing up, swimming, volleyball, good food, drinks, etc.
