Billionaire energy couple checklist San Francisco mansion, go away metropolis
One of San Francisco’s most prominent and wealthy tech power couples are reportedly leaving the city.
Stewart Butterfield, the co-founder of both Slack and Flickr, and his wife Jen Rubio, CEO of luggage manufacturer Away, listed their Presidio Heights mansion this week, reports the Wall Street Journal. The 7,700-square-foot, seven-bed Victorian at 3636 Clay Street hit the market on Monday at $19.8 million.
The pair are leaving San Francisco for Aspen, Colo., where they recently purchased a $25 million mountain home, reports the WSJ.
Once referred to as “Silicon Valley’s newest ‘it’ couple” by Insider, the couple got engaged in 2019 after Butterfield appeared to propose to Rubio over Twitter, seemingly as a joke. Butterfield was previously married to his Flickr co-founder, Caterina Fake.

After a previous stint working with Warby Parker, Rubio launched Away with co-founder Steph Korey in 2015. The luggage company has been valued at $1.45 billion, and Rubio’s net worth estimated at $130 million.
After founding photo hosting site Flickr in 2005, Butterfield and co-founders launched messaging software Slack in 2015. The company was bought by Salesforce in 2020 in a $27.7 billion “megadeal.” Butterfield’s net worth is estimated at $1.3 billion.
The home at 3636 Clay, between Locust and Spruce streets near Laurel Village, was built in 1899 and features a guest suite, a gym, a four-car garage, a private yard and a deck that opens out to a view of the Golden Gate Bridge.
