ABOUT VTS
VTS is changing the way that commercial real estate (CRE) is done—disrupting a $15 trillion industry by becoming the modern operating system for CRE. We invented the category of leasing and asset management, which allows landlords and brokers to take their entire leasing process online to maximize revenue and performance. Last year, we launched the fastest adopted new product in proptech, VTS Market. We recently launched VTS Data, already getting front-page references in the Wall Street Journal and quoted by Reuters, The Real Deal, Commerical Observer, and many more. Our success shows in our numbers—we hit "Unicorn" status in 2019 and today we have over 12 billion square feet of commercial space managed on VTS Lease (that's the equivalent of 5,500 buildings the size of the World Trade Center) in 34 countries, and we’ve expanded to over 350 employees globally. It’s an exciting time to join the VTS team as we continue to grow rapidly.
Our headquarters are in NYC, but we have hubs in other major US cities, Toronto, CA, and London, UK.
