Why work with us
Founded by Brian Sharples and Carl Shepherd in February 2005, the idea behind HomeAway was to revolutionize the historically-fragmented vacation rental industry and establish the company as the clear market leader. The entrepreneurial spirit of the pioneers who created the very first vacation rental sites, many of which are now part of the HomeAway portfolio, fueled the early growth of the business and set the tone for the company culture that exists today. At HomeAway we work as a team, we work hard and we're competitive, but we always make time to celebrate our successes. From peer-nominated awards for those who have exceeded expectations with a free vacation, to company parties that celebrate holidays and achievements, we strive to maintain a culture where everyone's content and proud to call HomeAway their "home away from home!"
Culture
The HomeAway World Headquarters is located in downtown Austin, Texas. Employees love the proximity to restaurants, bars and retail — especially to the unofficial company cafeteria, the Whole Foods Market flagship store. The office space is also situated off of Lady Bird Lake, which has a fantastic hike and bike trail. HomeAway's four-story, 86,000-square-foot, mixed-use building was awarded Gold-level LEED certification in April 2010 for its use of eco-friendly materials. The design is vacation-themed and features a giant replica of the birdhouse from the HomeAway logo.
