What We Do 🏊‍♂️

Swimply is an online marketplace that allows owners of underutilized swimming pools to monetize their pools’ downtime by sharing them locally by the hour. Think Airbnb, but for swimming pools.

How We Started 🤽🏼‍♂️

Swimply was founded by Bunim Laskin in 2019. As the eldest of 12 siblings and lacking resources for his family to escape the heat, Bunim thought of offering his neighbor financial assistance in exchange for some pool time. Before long, others in the community cut similar deals with her and she was turning a handsome profit. The rest is history.

Why Choose Us 🚀
Swimply is a fast-growing Series A funded tech startup where we have a beautiful and fun team culture. We host weekly trivia and games for prizes like gift cards and snacks, happy hours, cook alongs, and all sorts of other fun activities. More importantly, you’ll be part of a community that is full of fun, driven people who all view each other as peers. Your contributions will matter a lot... (seriously, it’s a startup) and you’ll be considered a valued member of our company. You’ll get great experience working with seasoned tech vets in a fun startup environment that will look great on a resume.

Who We're Looking For 🙌
This is a summer seasonal position so our ideal candidates are smart & driven college sophomores, juniors, and seniors who want a job at a fast-paced, growing tech startup. If you're a college senior and you outperform this summer and show unlimited potential, there may be opportunities to convert full-time with us. Many of our recent college grads have joined Swimply in full-time roles!

Our Mission 🌎

Our mission is to extend the sharing economy beyond the functional to the experiential. We will do this by building an authentic community-driven marketplace that democratizes access and enhances quality of life for the average family. Our current focus is on swimming pools but we will incrementally expand the platform to include all kinds of underutilized spaces (so long as they’re awesome).

We believe that ownership can be smarter, better, and more meaningful. Helping owners earn an income from their underutilized assets reduces the financial anxiety of ownership and simultaneously fosters community.

We envision a world in which anyone, anywhere, can access anything with the tap of a button -from their very own tennis court or swimming pool to home gyms and even music studios - regardless of their economic status.

Where we are now 🚀

Swimply experienced incredible rapid growth (4,000% YoY), largely driven by customer love, word-of-mouth, and robust media coverage. Last year, over 3,000 pools have been listed in the US, over 45,000 transactions have been completed (up from 1,000 transactions in 2019), and over 200,000 swimmers have enjoyed a stranger's pool.
