SMS Assist Summary

At SMS Assist, we're not just in the business of fixing properties-we're fixing an entire industry. Typically, facilities maintenance is tough work-both in the nature of the job (plumbing, HVAC, snow removal) and the lack of clarity throughout the experience. We decided a better way wasn't only possible, but essential. Through our award-winning technology platform, built and powered by SMSers, we connect local contractors to our customers and help manage an experience that surpasses expectations.

Recognized on Forbes' Cloud 100 list, Deloitte's Technology Fast 500, Chicago Crain's Top Tech Employers, and more, SMS Assist manages more than 186,000 properties where people live and work. Our customers' livelihoods are in our hands-think a restaurant manager whose only fryer goes down on a busy Friday night or a family in Florida without power after a hurricane. We work across the industries that make up your community, including retail, food service, banking, residential, and more, and we help them find the right provider in our network (we call them Affiliates) in more than 45 trades.

We're innovators, disruptors, and out-of-the-box thinkers. We set each other up for success in the office and for the perfect spike on the volleyball court during an intramural game. We're community volunteers, karaoke partners, and lifelong friends. We're passionate about the people we serve, and we give our all because we care. We want to make every property better, and we want your help to make it happen.

Job Summary

As a member of the Communications and Experience Team, you will join our mission of enhancing the overall SMS Assist experience, both inside and out. We believe in creating an environment that SMSers can be proud of-programming that is useful and interesting, communications that are clear and consistent, and purposeful initiatives that are based on the needs of colleagues. We're all passionate about fostering an incredible culture for every level and location. So, what are you waiting for? Let's get to work!

The communications and experience coordinator will be responsible for having a full understanding of the ins and outs of our company. From upcoming events to new customers, you are driven by always knowing the latest SMS Assist news and how it relates to our internal audiences. You are enthusiastic about creating incredible experiences for our employees and are a brand steward externally.
