About Us 2017-12-30T09:30:52+00:00


GoNitely started as a love story. On their honeymoon around the world, the founders noticed dozens of empty, unused properties in prime locations in a variety of different countries. Inquiring as to why these were not for rent, the two main reasons quickly became clear: The owners could not be bothered to do any work, not even using modern and very easy-to-use rental platforms, and they were afraid of something happening to their property since they usually did not live nearby.

What if GoNitely could take care of both those issues – and along the way provide a much-needed part-time job for a person living nearby? That’s what got us going.

By providing a simple app that lists any property on the major rental platforms and allows any person willing to invest a bit of time to manage it, GoNitely solves the last hurdle to putting those millions of unused second homes on the market.

Homeowners make money without lifting a finger. Neighbors make a decent income with a flexible job. Travelers get access to amazing places.

Welcome to GoNitely.

GoNitely is truly an international company. Founded by two Europeans, based in the US, and essentially made by a bunch of highly talented geeks from all around the world.

It is our goal that our product can be enjoyed anywhere soon – no matter if you’re a homeowner, a manager, or a traveler.

As a Manager, you are the face of operations at GoNitely. We are looking for people passionate about hospitality, willing to take care of someone else’s home.

Your role as a Manager is two-fold: You interact with guests from all over the world, and you make sure the home they’re staying at exceeds their expectations.

The most important characteristic of our Managers is reliability. Guests depend on you to make their stay as smooth as possible. We provide an awesome app for you to stay in touch with your guests, from the first inquiry to the day of their departure. You are their point of contact for anything that comes up, prior and during their stay.

You should:

  • Have a smartphone (Android or iPhone)
  • Be able to speak and write in English
  • Be available to answer inquiries and questions within a few hours
  • Be living nearby permanently (vacations are ok, but you cannot be a nomad and never be around)
  • Be able to purchase and restock supplies (e.g. toilet paper, shampoo)

Extra awesome:

  • You’re a problem solver
  • You know the neighborhood and town, you know the best burger, beer or falafel
  • You’re handy, meaning you can tighten a screw yourself
  • You’re a homemaker with an eye for details

Piqued your interest? Get in touch with us. We’re looking forward to hearing from you!
