Our Backstory

From Garage to Global Footprint

AirDNA’s CEO and co-founder Scott Shatford got his short-term rental start like many others in the early days of Airbnb. He decided to list his apartment last minute before leaving on vacation, and it ended up covering the rent handily. Fast-forward 6 months, and he had scaled his operation into a successful multi-unit short-term rental business in Southern California. 

But Scott realized that for the most part, he was flying blind. He had zero intel on what his competitors were doing and whether or not he was leaving money on the table. 

Within 2 years, Scott had developed a method to track the short-term rental performance of every listing on Airbnb. Those machine-learning algorithms would go on to power the insights and analytics behind MarketMinder and AirDNA’s enterprise solutions.

Our Locations,format
Corporate Headquarters

Denver, Colorado

California gave us our start,  but we quickly set up corporate headquarters in downtown Denver. When we’re not busy educating the world on short-term rentals, you can find us outdoors, with our dogs, listening to live music at Red Rocks, or sipping some combination of barley and hops.,format
Sales & Customer Success

Barcelona, Spain

After a (not so) long brainstorm on where to establish our European headquarters, we landed in Barcelona. Our sales and customer success departments enjoy the Mediterranean climate from the office terrace, the friendly, international culture, and hitting the beach on the weekend.

Our team is happy, hungry, and honest.
It’s as simple as that.
