Bilingual Virtual Maintenance Technician (English/Spanish)

HappyCo is a company where people can grow their careers and work with like minded people, with no egos or politics. HappyCo is values driven and offers a flexible, supportive culture. Join HappyCo and Make Work Happy!

Are you a maintenance technician who is tired of being on their feet all day, responding to “emergencies” and keeping a clean and well-stocked shop? Would you like to be able to use your Spanish-speaking skills daily to assist apartment residents with their minor maintenance and repair needs from the comfort of your own home?

HappyCo’s software enables Happy Force maintenance technicians to assist residents remotely via text, phone and video calls. Happy Force technicians are elevating the maintenance experience for residents in multifamily apartments and houses across the country without having to carry tools around and can work on a flexible schedule that gives them work-life balance.

The Position

We’re looking for motivated, experienced, and tech-savvy Bilingual Maintenance Technicians to join our Happy Force team and assist residents remotely. Virtual Maintenance Technicians are no different than on-site maintenance technicians at apartment complexes, other than not being on-site or needing tools. The Remote Technicians must have experience in on-site maintenance and the ability to understand the nature of the issue being reported by the resident. Happy Force remote technicians assist on-site teams by prioritizing issues and providing step by step guidance to assist residents in resolving basic issues arising from everyday living.

We have full time shifts available for daytime hours (Mon - Fri: 9:00 AM - 6:00 PM) and our After Hours shifts (Mon - Fri: 6:00 PM - 9:00 AM - 2 shifts available) and on weekends and holidays (24 hours - 3 shifts available). Please indicate your availability and preferences in your application. This is also an opportunity to grow your skill set and build a career with HappyCo, moving from contract to full or part-time employment with benefits.
