Service Foremen and Superintendents - Dowbuilt

Position Title: Service Foremen and Superintendents

Company Name: Dowbuilt

Position Location: 4001 Aurora Ave North, Seattle, WA 98103 US

Company Website: http://dowbuilt.com

Position Description: At Dowbuilt, the care we put into building relationships is as important as the craftsmanship that goes into each home we build. So it’s no surprise our clients trust us to continue caring for their homes. Our team of Service Superintendents and Foremen go beyond simple, routine maintenance – they apply the eye of a craftsman, the foresight and communication savvy of a project manager, and an unrivaled since of pride that comes from solving puzzles and delivering outstanding results.

Our 9 person service team in WA is exceptional and incredibly diverse in their backgrounds, skills and experience. Many are former business owners, looking for an opportunity to join a larger team, while running their own book of business and focusing on what they love to do most. They happily let go of the pressure to work around the clock to keep the project pipeline full, do the evening paperwork, and manage the books. Others are master carpenters, metalworkers, fine furniture builders and restorers, boat builders, former art handlers, theater and movie set fabricators, mechanics and diesel engineers.

This is an opportunity to work alongside a tightly knit team unique in the industry, and highly regarded by Dowbuilt’s principals as critical in maintaining our strong relationships with clients and partners. If you seek out variety in your work, autonomy in managing how a project gets done with solid resources and support behind you, and you enjoy client interaction, daily problem solving, and have an appreciation for incredible spaces, then we would love to hear from you!

Position Requirements: 

  • Are you passionate about your craft? 

  • Want to be a part of an elite team trusted with caring for some of the most beautiful homes in the world? 

  • Is problem solving a source of motivation and pride? 

  • Can you consistently provide professional and respectful communication? 

  • Do you make sound judgement calls? 

  • Can you work independently, as well as share ideas and garner support when needed? 

If you answered yes to these questions – we’re looking for you. As a service team member, you will work directly with our clients to help care for their homes. Whether we built the home or not, our team provides maintenance, manages small projects, and is available for emergency response. They focus on providing quality work and a personal service to ensure each client has a satisfying experience with their beautifully crafted home.
