Opportunity and Impact
Latchel is an Y Combinator-backed startup seeking a remote customer service agent to join our growing operations and customer service team. By joining the team at such an early stage you’d have an influence on the product direction and company culture. We have a product serving live customers and have had great success dealing with clients with diverse and challenging needs. We are looking for someone to build and expand upon this success.

Industry and Company
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 diagnostics, troubleshootings, 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. You can read about us in a recent TechCrunch article here: https://techcrunch.com/2019/02/22/latchel-wants-to-make-maintenance-easier-for-landlords-and-property-managers/ 

Property management software is a rapidly growing industry (projected $5B by 2020) with few incumbent players and low market penetration (estimated that only 20% of property managers use online software platforms). In the US, property management is a $72B industry and contractor services are worth hundreds of billions in the US alone. The property management industry is underserved by technology. At Latchel, we believe we understand the reasons for low market penetration and take a different approach than other companies in the field. I’d love to talk to you more about this, please apply so we can talk more about this challenge.
