Liv Communities


Apply to be a Maintenance Technician III with Liv Communities today. When you’re a Maintenance Technician III, you’re a linebacker for Team Liv, protecting your community from property damage, weather and minor emergencies.  You’re always looking out for the well-being of residents in everything from recreation to apartment repairs. As an HVAC expert, you keep people comfortable in all seasons, stopping the assault of heat, cold and humidity and cold.  Security and safety are always at the front of your mind.  You get things done, and do it right the first time.  That’s the only way you know how to operate.

At Liv Communities, we are in the people business. Ask our employees why and they’ll say, “Because we can help people live fuller lives.”  But that doesn’t just apply to our residents. We invest in our team members and promote from within so we can build a long-lasting, sustainable team for our residents.  We demand quality, but we know you’ll have fun in the process. The word “boredom” is not in our vocabulary. Can you thrive in a culture like that? Do you believe serving others is the best thing a person can do?


Whether you’ve worked in property management before or not, you’re someone we’d like to talk to. 


Of course, work wouldn’t be work without some responsibilities.  You’ll be involved in turning over apartments from one resident to the next, including safety inspections, lock changing and more. You will handle HVAC repairs to keep residents comfortable at all times.  Seasonal, preventative and emergency maintenance will all be part of your work.  You’ll be working with residents and contractors, so people skills are required. Full disclosure — there will be times when you will be on call and will need to provide a fast, friendly response.


If you can do all of these things, and you’re outgoing, passionate, and ethical, then what are you waiting for? Apply today.
