Meet Modus Hotels

We are a lifestyle hotel company dedicated to consistently being best in class by delivering personalized experiences based on each guest’s distinct needs. Our culture is one of independent and spirited individuals who love what they do and share a desire to create a genuine environment where each person can truly be themselves. It’s important to know that we have 10 core values that we live by; we’ll expect that you will too.

What do we want you to do

We want you to look after this hotel as if it were your home. You’ll make sure broken things get fixed, and more importantly you’ll create a detailed program to ensure they don’t break in the first place. From the little every day details – maintenance of our guestrooms, public space, and the back of the house – to the big capital plans that help our hotels maintain their fresh appeal, you’ll schedule, direct, and follow up to ensure each project reaches completion. When things go south, you’ll be the first phone call – day or night. You’ll make sure we have the right tools and equipment and keep them organized, and that chemicals and hazardous materials are used and stored properly. You’ll make sure work is performed safely and efficiently.

Who is going to get this job

You’ll realize that the physical condition of the property has just as big an impact on our guests’ experience as our service does. Ideally, you’ve been working in hotel engineering for at least five years plus at least two in a supervisory role. You’ll not only understand the mechanics and the systems of buildings, you’ll make sure your team learns them as well. You know that the hospitality business has its own quirks and demands… like explaining the madness of a two-pipe system to a grumpy guest… and you’re ready to meet that challenge. You’ll be highly skilled in HVAC, electricity, plumbing, carpentry, and general maintenance. One more thing-we are an equal opportunity employer. We actively respect the right of any qualified individual who performs to Modus standards to work. Discrimination based on gender, age, race, religion, national origin, marital status, sexual orientation, disability, or any other characteristic not related to performance, ability or attitude protected by state or federal law, is stupid, disrespectful, bad business and won’t be tolerated. It’s also illegal.
