OPPORTUNITY & IMPACT
Latchel is an early stage, Y Combinator-backed startup; we began operations in February 2017. In March 2018 we launched 24/7 emergency maintenance services and have grown rapidly since then. You’ll be joining a small, nimble team in a fast-paced and growing team. By joining at such a pivotal moment you will be essential to Latchel’s continued success, building our culture, and grow as a leader within the company.
ABOUT LATCHEL & OUR INDUSTRY
Latchel supports property management companies and landlords across the US. Our primary service troubleshoots and dispatches 24/7 emergencies for property managers. We work with a company’s existing vendors if they have them and provide vendors when their vendors are unavailable or they don’t have them. We provide diagnostic, troubleshooting, and dispatching services so property managers have more free time and less frustration. We use technology to improve the experience for renters and vendors and make our operations processes more efficient.
Latchel offers services in several multi-billion dollar industries. Property management is a $72B industry in the US; contractor services are worth hundreds of billions. Both of these industries are underserved by technology and suffer from low market penetration and extreme fragmentation. At Latchel, we believe we understand the reasons for low market penetration and take a different approach than other companies in the field. We’d love to talk to you more about this. Please apply to one of the jobs below so we can talk more about this challenge. Want to learn more about working at Latchel? Read our Leadership Principles.
Latchel is a 100% remote team so everyone is expected to be autonomous and self-motivated. We invest heavily in making our remote culture feel like a connected team and also invest in making your workspace the most effective you can be.

On-Demand Maintenance Troubleshooter & Dispatcher – Fully Remote
Are you a property manager or maintenance tech looking for extra cash and a flexible schedule? Are you able to troubleshoot common rental property emergencies over the phone? We’re hiring on-demand troubleshooters and dispatchers to diagnose emergencies, troubleshoot requests, and if required, dispatch technicians. You pick your hours of availability. You can work from anywhere with a solid internet connect and/or cell signal. Think of it like Uber for Troubleshooters.
1. Call tenants to understand their maintenance issues.
2. Guide them to fix issues over the phone and to de-escalate emergency situations so they’re no longer emergencies.
3. Call out to maintenance technicians if emergencies can’t be fixed or de-escalated. We want to get someone out immediately for most emergencies.
4. Once a technician gives you verbal confirmation that they can go out, you assign them the work order in our software and you’re all done! Nice work. Our average incoming emergency requires about 15 minutes to resolve.

PAY & BENEFITS
Latchel offers nationwide medical, dental, and vision coverage. All employees have stock options. We offer competitive and flexible pay and stock packages set according to market data gathered from OpenComp.co.
At Latchel, we believe being an “Equal Opportunity Employer” is not going far enough. Of course we give everyone an equal opportunity and do not discriminate on the basis of gender, race, religion, national origin, age, disability or genetic information. However, despite many employers practicing non-discriminatory practices, the wage gap continues to exist. That’s why at Latchel we do not engage in the traditional salary negotiation dance. We are up front about the pay structure and give prospective salaried employees three packages to choose from that balance salary and equity. Hourly employees have a set scheduled pay increase as long as their performance meets expectations.
For all positions, there is a clear advancement path set by market rates determined by OpenComp.co and we review performance every quarter.
