Calling all handypeople, do-it-yourselfers, and repairmen!

Patriot Family Homes could be the next best place to settle in and build your career if you're skilled in repair and maintenance.

Patriot Family Homes is a place where people come first, and we take pride in our work. Founded in 2018 by US Army Veteran Joe Riley, Patriot Family Homes was created to assist in helping meet the need for affordable, reliable housing in the South, particularly near military bases. Since then, we have grown from a handful of homes to 500 properties in 25+ markets with 75 employees, offering services to clients in:

  • Property Management
  • Lease to Us Programs
  • Management Support
  • Temporary Housing Relocation

Additionally, we are nearing the end of a capital raise that will allow us to buy an additional 1,000 homes within the next two years. This will necessitate hiring another 100 employees over that time frame, making us the largest owner-operated chain of short-term rentals in the nation, with plans to further expand to 25,000 homes globally over the next decade. The career growth opportunities are massive.

But, most importantly, as veterans, we understand the importance of “home,” and our team works each and every day to provide that feeling through exemplary service. When you become a team member at Patriot Family Homes, you will

become a part of our work family, where we strive to ensure you always feel supported and valued for the sacrifices you make as we continue to grow in excellence.


If you’ve never encountered a home maintenance issue you couldn't handle, enjoy finding new ways to improve home maintenance processes, and have a mindset that says no job is too small- we’d love to connect.

Our Maintenance Technicians are critical to our brand's reputation as they ensure the maintenance and quality of each home in their assigned market. As such, you will be highly valued in this role.

Candidates for this position should be able to work steadily and accurately on time-sensitive issues and maintain relationships with third-party vendors.

If you love the idea of working for a rapidly growing and welcoming company, having a daily schedule of traveling to properties (we offer a fuel allowance),  and being able to start as soon as possible - let’s talk.
