At Common we subscribe to a set of beliefs that help guide how we work, play, and problem solve together. If these resonate for you, there might be a role with your name on it.
Make the case, take the risk
At Common, we embrace smart risks. A smart risk is defined as one you can rationally defend to yourself and your peers, ideally with data. Taking smart risks in your role is also important to ensure that you’re pushing the envelope.
Default to transparency
This value speaks to authenticity and honesty. Transparency is an effective way to work and establish a culture of trust. We strive to be clear in communication and avoid making assumptions. Adopting this mindset also helps foster better feedback and communication.
Bring data to the conversation
Data drives many of the decisions we make and how we operate. Data looks different in every role, so it will be up to you to find meaningful metrics in your work.
Whether a change is small or large-scale, and affects just one department or the whole company, being able to adapt to these changes is key.
Start with yes
Approach new challenges, questions, and requests with an open mindset. If an idea doesn’t feel possible, start with a mindset of we should be able to figure this out instead of shutting down the idea right way.
Growth & Development

culture of growth and development. We provide
all of our employees with the necessary resources,

education. From our Housekeeping to Real Estate Teams,
the career possibilities at Common are endless.
Get to know us
At Common we’re growing high performing teams by creating work environments that allow a diverse group of talent to perform at their best.
What does a typical day at Common look like for you?
As a Product Manager, every day looks different! I'm thinking strategically about initiatives in our roadmap, getting consensus on minimum viable product designs, drafting tickets and working with engineers, and supporting them through the development process. I also support other departments' technology requests and manage their priority.
What is your favorite part about being in your role?
I enjoy being at the intersection of design, technology, and the business, and being able to shape them all to best hit our company's goals.
Senior Communications Manager
What does a typical day at Common look like for you?
I'm so lucky because as the Communications Manager for Common, my work touches almost every single different department in the company! On a daily basis, I'm trying to get every bit of newsworthy information out of each group, taking it all in like a sponge, and figuring out how to tell that story in the media. This may mean chatting with our Experience team about a new event we're throwing in Seattle, getting coffee with a Real Estate Director to learn all the details of our newest home opening in Brooklyn, or meeting with our CEO Brad to hear his take on the latest coliving news. Getting breakfast with reporters is a regular occurrence and definitely necessary to build relationships. You can usually find me slacking everyone on the marketing team their horoscope. Oh! And I get to travel. That's super fun.
If you could live in any Common home, in any city, which one would you choose? Why?
I would live in Common Melrose. Have you seen that roofdeck? I would be tan and happy all the time. My second choice would be Common Summit in Seattle. I got the chance to go to Seattle for the first time while opening our first home there, and I absolutely fell in love with the city. I had the best coffee and ate doughnuts all day. It was great.
Senior Implementation Specialist
What do you think makes Common's culture unique compared to other companies you’ve worked for?
Common offers great benefits and perks but I think what makes the culture at Common unique is its focus on its employees and environment. Common puts its trust into their employees by encouraging feedback, smart risk taking and collaboration. The company operates on these values which allows us employees to directly impact the growth and success of the company. The culture at Common can be felt as soon as you walk into the office, the space is open with everyone working alongside each other, including Brad, our CEO. There is also an ample amount of meeting rooms, the kitchen is stocked, and there are always events set on the calendar.
What has been your favorite day working at Common? What made it so special?
My favorite day at Common was my first Tuesday. Every Tuesday we have a team lunch that everyone within the company attends where our CEO and other people on our management team share everything from new employees, metrics, updates and goals. In that team lunch I was not only able to meet the entire team but I also got a first hand glimpse of where we were as a company and where we were planning to go. From that day on I knew that I had made the right decision to be a part of the growth at Common.
