Hourly: $17.00 / hour



Working at Sextant Stays means you’ll play a valuable role in solving the problem presented to travelers forced to choose between two flawed options: impersonal and expensive hotels or unreliable and inconsistent vacation rentals. What makes us different from other luxury short-term rental companies is our process of hand-selecting each property and then moving forward with complete renovations, ensuring that each home aligns with our standards.

Our commitment to detail, design, decor, customer service, and implementing smart technology has driven our success. We are now looking for a candidate dedicated to maintaining these properties while putting guest satisfaction first.


We are excited to offer a $1,000 Sign-On Bonus! $500 paid after three months of employment, with another $500 paid after six months of employment. 

In order to fill the role of Maintenance Technician/Painter, we need a reliable person who's hard-working and not afraid to get their hands dirty. This position aims to ensure our guests have a memorable stay by providing them with maintenance assistance.

In this role, it will be your responsibility to conduct excellent fieldwork, which includes:

  • Maintaining and repairing defects within the building and guest rooms.
  • Performing preventative maintenance and painting.
  • Acting as an ambassador of the brand with a high level of professionalism
  • Ensuring each property meets safety standards

Your day-to-day duties will involve performing tasks at multiple properties in the area, requiring prompt responses to issues as they arise, a clean driving record, and the ability to work under time constraints. It will be crucial for your success that you solve problems independently, prioritize tasks, implement processes, and communicate effectively so that you can accomplish tasks efficiently without supervision.

The right applicant for this role should be a skilled painter.
