Our ideal candidate is an extrovert and hyper-networker who loves people and building relationships.

What is the Day-to-Day Like?
You’re the heart of the community. You know everyone by name and greet and bid adieu with a positivity that gives every member a feeling of warmth and welcome. You are not just another piece of furniture at the front door. You are the motor that keeps the operation running. You’re checking in on everybody throughout the day (using your best judgment) and ensuring everyone’s needs are met. While we do have a cleaning service come in, you also maintain a tidy and neat environment that allows one to get business done (keeping track of supplies, vacuuming as needed, cleaning table tops, ensuring any refreshments and food is fresh, keeping all dishware clean). You ensure all technological devices are in working order, such as internet and printers. You’re assisting members with setting up presentations and coordinating events, as needed. You connect like-minded people and are also able to diffuse any contentions. You help keep our social media pages active and exciting. You give tours, help members sign up or move out, and follow up with prospective members.
This role is ideal for someone who can take direction but also takes initiative and thinks on his or her feet.
- Bachelor’s degree in marketing, communications, business or other related field preferred.
- 401k and Cafeteria Plan
- Paid time off
- Health, Dental, Vison, Disability and Life Insurance
