What we're looking for

We are currently looking for a Runner with a knack for fixing things to help out our guests. The Runner position will assist with maintenance needs at our Vacasa properties, come to the rescue when urgent issues arise, and help support our guest operations team.

What you'll do

  • Travel between units to perform basic maintenance on the homes we manage
  • Work as part of our local team to support the day to day operations
  • Run keys and come to the rescue of any team member in need
  • Use your basic knowledge of maintenance when it comes to tasks such as hanging pictures, fixing blinds, and changing light-bulbs
  • Assist with garbage removal
  • Clear snow from walkways and driveways during the winter season
  • Service hot tubs
  • Troubleshoot issues that arise with appliances and cable/wifi
  • Light plumbing, such as fixing a leaky sink
  • Correspond on a regular basis via email and phone with the local team
  • Order, maintain, and replenish maintenance inventory
  • Assist with other maintenance projects as needed
Skills you'll need

  • Flexibility and adaptability
  • Must have a Canadian driver's license with clean abstract record
  • Able to lift up to 20 pounds
  • Basic knowledge of HVAC systems a plus!
  • Able to proactively communicate with our guests, owners, and field operations teams via email, phone, and in person
  • 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: when guests are on vacation, we are our busiest. A willingness to help when needed is essential. This can include weekends and holidays.
  • Computer savviness: 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 basis. We rely on you to balance those priorities and kick into action with your organization skills to manage the workload.
  • 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.
