About This Role:
Ikos, a Pittsburgh-based startup is seeking a Coordination Specialist to join our efforts in scaling our business and operations efforts to new markets. We’re VC backed and have successful operations currently up and running in 9 cities including Pittsburgh, PA, Baltimore, MD, and Cleveland, OH.
As a Coordination Specialist at Ikos, you'll be responsible for maintaining our flex-leasing process by connecting landlords with renters and building relationships within the local market. The purpose of this position is to be the bridge between the potential renters and the wide variety of housing options we offer.
In this role, you will respond daily to inbound leads via, email, text and/or phone calls in order to coordinate showing appointments with potential renters, Insiders (who perform the showings), and occasionally tenants. These showings provide unique information and insights about specific properties. You will be able to use the information within Ikos' proprietary system to help renters find the best property that works for them. We need your help to create the best experience possible for all who interact with us here at Ikos!
Ikos is delivering a scalable leasing service for residential landlords that improves their occupancy rates and provides real-time market data for rental, rehab and investment decisions.
The residential renting process has been complicated and frustrating for both landlords and renters. We're here to change that by simplifying how landlords (specifically small/medium landlords) manage their investment properties, while better serving the renters who call those investments, home.
About You & Your Impact:
You’re looking to become an integral part of a young but fast-moving startup team. As an early member of our core operations team, you'll help define Ikos’ culture and practice extreme ownership over critical operations processes and key client relationships.
You get things done. You have ambition – quality, hard-work and execution are some of our core values. You enjoy variety and love to tackle big projects. You’re a do-it-all type of person with a startup mentality. You love the fact that your work and input means something to the company and most importantly the landlords we’re serving. Lastly, you are organized and efficient.
Some of the areas core to our Operations Team’s efforts include establishing and building relationships with renter and landlords but learning about our current inventory and working with our Sales Team to grow the company’s reach within Pittsburgh, Cleveland and in other cities and markets.
Real Estate Knowledge:
Ideal: Understand the struggle between renters and landlords.
Reality: Be eager and interested in real estate and compelled to help people already in the business with a desire to learn as much as possible. Be good with people (genuinely good with people) and enjoy relationship building.
We have a 90-day performance evaluation period in which we will work closely with you to put you in the best situations to succeed. We love our employees to grow within the company so there is plenty of opportunities to grow in the company as your experience grows.
