Facilities Manager

As our Facilities Manager, you are a real “do-er” with a great attitude and thrive on working with people.  We are looking for someone to own the happiness of our Tractionites, and ensure that the space encourages their best work and helping us to scale up as our offices around North America grow.

Traction on Demand’s hiring philosophy is based on culture, intelligence and then skills. Here’s what we mean by that:

Culture

Culture at Traction on Demand isn’t about drinking beer and playing ping-pong – it’s much more. We are looking for people who want to join an active community of engaged individuals who see business as more than just a vehicle to make money. We care about our people, wider community and planet.  Come join us on this journey!

Traction is a group of entrepreneurs committed to creating ecstatic clients, doing enjoyable work and being efficient in everything we do.  We fail fast and love to innovate. Change is our middle name.

Our values don’t just sit on a glossy page.  We live them every day.  Our values are the cornerstone of who we are – do they resonate with you?

  • Embrace Knowledge
  • Do the right thing
  • Seek adventures and smiles
  • Healthy hearts and heads
  • Pursue opportunity
  • Build community

Intelligence

People often ask what it takes to succeed at Traction on Demand – you’ve got to be smart, without having an ego. What does that mean? Imagine working with a group of your smartest friends who all love to learn. Everyone is always pushing each other to grow and innovate at a pace that can only be called furious. We are never idle or stagnant. We seek and share knowledge. We are comfortable with the unknown. We just “git ‘r done.”

  • Knowledge of property management, space planning and portfolio optimization, including knowledge of alternative workplace solutions
  • Knowledge of building regulations, construction practices, and safety regulations
