Why Vacasa

We started with just one home and an idea: to bring homeowners and renters together with smart technology and caring local teams. Today, we're the largest full-service vacation rental company in the US thanks to the people who give us their best every day. You'll fit right in here if you're curious, entrepreneurial, and thrive in a rapid-growth environment.

Why Operations at Vacasa

We live by a simple motto: happy team, happy owners, happy guests. Our local people are what set Vacasa apart. We're hospitality professionals dedicated to the communities we work with. We're the behind-the-scenes problem-solvers who create worry-free experiences for our owners and guests.

What we're looking for

Vacasa is looking for a competent, energetic, advanced communicator and leader to join our team as a Field Operations Specialist. This Jack or Jill of all trades will be responsible for running the home care team for a portfolio of homes - acting as a direct extension of the owners and keeping them in the loop with all aspects of the management of their homes. The home care team is comprised of a team of housekeepers and maintenance technicians. A day in the life might include: reviewing maintenance needed at homes, owner communications, cleaning inspections, stocking a new home and staging it for its first guest, helping a guest figure out how to light a gas fireplace over the phone, walking an owner through their monthly statement, completing routine maintenance repairs such as changing a light bulb or replacing a broken door latch, dispatching non routine repairs, and helping a housekeeper finish a particularly challenging clean before guests arrive - remember when we said, "Jack or Jill of all trades?"

What you'll do

  • This position will require you to be cool under pressure, and balance challenging priorities on a regular basis.

  • We are a vacation company and we will be the busiest when most folks are taking vacations-ie weekends, spring break, summer, etc. We'll need you to be available.

  • This is not a 9-5 job, you will be called upon after normal business hours and on weekends, and flexibility is key. You are the boots on the ground when our guests or owners need assistance.

  • Maintaining an efficient and high-quality housekeeping team will be your top priority!

  • Traveling between multiple worksites and balancing competing priorities each day is a primary function of this role.

  • Must be willing to use personal vehicle and maintenance related tools.

  • Professional and frequent communications with the owners of the homes in your portfolio.

  • Being willing/able to perform light home maintenance (light bulbs, fix door hinges, unclog a toilet, etc)

  • Other responsibilities as assigned.

Skills you'll need

  • Communicator: proactively communicate with your owners via email, phone and in person to ensure that they are in the loop with all aspects of the management of their home. Ability to "sell" an owner on necessary improvements and help them understand how that impacts their revenue.

  • Problem Solver: at Vacasa, we always seek to head problems off at the pass, but chaos theory prevails and we can't pre-solve for everything. When something doesn't go according to plan, you will need to go into action and work with teams across Vacasa to turn problems into opportunities.

  • Can do/will do attitude: you will be part of an on-call rotation, and guest needs aren't always confined to normal business hours. A willingness to help when needed is essential.

  • Natural born leader: as a Field Operations Specialist, you will have a small team of housekeepers. Your ability to lead the team in a collective and positive way is essential.

  • Computer Savvy: Our custom developed management software has set Vacasa apart as an industry leader. We use our system to manage all aspects of our business. While we will never ask you to do any coding, we will want you to be very comfortable using a computer. If you commonly find yourself saying, "I bet I can get on youtube and figure out how to do that.", you'll be just fine.

  • Highly Organized: This position requires balancing competing priorities on a day to day and minute by minute basis. At Vacasa we are dedicated to providing the best tools possible to manage the workload, but there is a critical human piece that you will provide. Only you can know how your owners like to be communicated with, which homes need extra attention and you are the one that can put eyes on a home when guests are having issues. We rely on you to balance those priorities and kick into action with your organization skills to manage the workload.

  • A bit of a maintenance mind - as an extension of your owners, you will need to be able to troubleshoot issues that come up in your homes and either repair them (if minor) or make recommendations to your owners.

  • Change Agent: At Vacasa, we firmly believe that every employee should be a stakeholder in improving our owner and guest experience. As an agent of change, we will ask you to help identify areas where we have an opportunity to improve.

  • Ability to lift up to 20 pounds.

What you'll get

  • Health/dental/vision insurance100% covered

  • 401K retirement savings plan with up to a 6% company match

  • Vacation time

  • Paid sick leave and holidays

  • Career advancement opportunities

  • Employee discounts

  • All the equipment you'll need to be successful

  • Great colleagues and culture
