Day in the life of a Kasa Field Operations Lead

  • Like many operations roles, there is no ‘typical day'. Your role will involve a wide range of activities tending to the Kasa portfolio in the Pittsburgh area. These activities will be a mixture of recurring property management tasks and activities requiring more urgent attention.

  • During emergencies, you will be the primary party responsible for providing support for lockouts, last-minute requests, and assisting with other guest issues. As our eyes and ears on the ground, you will also work with our Trust and Safety team to implement on-site security protocols and be present at the property to personally oversee the departure of problematic guests. While you are not 'on-call 24/7' for this job, during emergencies you will get a call and if you're available, we compensate above state requirements to a minimum of 2 hours Overtime, on defined days off or after working hours.
