The Nomad Pad: Austin Pad is looking for awesome nomads starting April!

Sign up for Nomad House: Project Austin

Hey Nomads!

So Nomad House: Project Austin is coming together. We found a better house with a better location and living arrangement, and we are just looking for one more digital nomad to join our little experiment from Feb. 1st- Mar. 1st.

Living options:
$900: Private Room

$700: Shared room

The house is at S. Park Dr. and Powell Court in Austin Texas.

To give you an idea of the awesome people you’d be living with, the residence so far are:

@tikhon - Hailing from San Fran (for now!), seasoned developer, specializing in dev/ops, sysadmin and the non-tech side of the startup world such as Fundraising/recruiting/sales. You may be be familiar with the 2 successful start-ups that he co-founded - Scribd + Parse. Avid rock climber, photographer and looking to make another awesome project this time free from VC’s overlord control! Rockin!

@maxholzheu - Hailing from Guatemala, alum of Build Campus in SF. Committed to paving a courageous path to freedom using technology. His life philosophies are *stop planning, start moving *never stop learning. Currently kicking ass as a web developer for Junto Studio, with remote work privileges.

Grayson - Has yet to fork over the $15 to join the #nomad group. But luckily he’s a good friend of mine. We met working at a company is Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia called Mindvalley (you may have heard of it). When he’s not helping artist promote themselves with his startup Mumora, he’s either eating street cooked grub in a hole in the wall in South East Asia, blogging about marketing or just being a tall shaggy good dude!

Me - I’m Brandon, you can check out some of the crazy stuff I’ve done in the past: like the time I biked from German to India, or the time I became a Thai commerical star! Life is random, I know! Currently working for a startup called Bucketfeet, that makes cool sneakers using designs submitted by artists from all over the world! I convinced them to let me move to Austin and work remote, so let the adventures begin. I also like salsa dancing, personal development books, maps and anything with 2 wheels!

You - Can’t wait to see who are 5th nomad will be!

If you want to be apart of something great, sign up below and let’s build a world free of year leases, boring roommates and coffeeshop refugees.

This is awesome! Have fun in Austin. I’ll be there at the end of February for a company meetup. I’d love to meet you all.

Sure thing! Hit us up whenever you’re around!

I would love to do this, but that timeframe doesn’t coincide with my schedule. Do you have any Nomad House plans for the summer?

Have been working hard to do my part to solve this nomad housing problem and finally launched Nomad Pad! They say sometimes a drop in bucket can lead to an ocean, so let’s see where this goes. I was able to convince an Airbnb homeowner to unlist her property and dedicate it to the project for the months of April, May and June! There is currently 2 room booked for all of April, from a web worker from San Fransisco & Grayson, meaning there are 2 more beds to claim. We would need an online commitment to stay, and could collect the payment through Stripe 2 weeks prior to stay, but without further ado, The Austin Pad!

Located at South Second and Mary street (https://goo.gl/maps/ntVdN), literally a 5 minute walk to South Congress, a really special part of Austin. Nice big table for coworking, wifi, fully furnished, in unit washer/dry, all utilities included. It’s a 3 bedroom, 4 bed, with 2 bathrooms. Elijah Wood is our neighbor and we’re working to throw events with WeWork and Capital Factory (two great locate cowork spaces/incubators) in the garage haha.

Monthly rent: $1,000 (private)
Weekly rent: $400
















My goal with Nomad Pad is to create the most comfortable, fun and helpful environment possible. I’ve been a nomad for 6 years, and know what little things can help when moving to a new city. I want the focus to be on personal growth, becoming stronger business owners and really connecting with the nomads of the house! If we get Austin right, it’s a step towards creating a global network of hotel/hostel/houses that serve the nomad community with flexible short-term booking, concierge services and a great community behind it!

Support at NomadPad.org, and stay up with the adventures at instagram.com/nomadpadhq, facebook.com/nomadpadhq and twitter.com/nomadpadhq.

The goal is to get one Pad right, and then grow as the community dictates.

Excited to see you guys in Austin!!

Brandon

Hey, are you guys still running a “no lease” digital nomad apartment? I’m interested in knowing more. Digital nomad based out of ATX: [email protected]
