KGM is looking for a full-time Assistant General Manager to join our growing general management team.

ABOUT KGM

At KGM we have a human first culture. Human hours, human time off, and human flexibility. We prefer calm thoughtful work to reactive work. We believe 40 hours a week is a good amount of time to devote to one’s job. We respect nights and weekends. We believe there should be time to take care of our families, children, and loved ones. We love the work, but we believe we function at our best when we have balance and time to breathe.

At KGM we rely on the written word. Instead of long meetings and endless video calls, we primarily communicate in writing. A thoughtful write-up is worth ten Zoom meetings. Plus, nothing gets lost in translation. There’s always a record so others on the team can dip in and out of projects and know exactly where things stand.

We’re known for using technology to help us stay organized and promote a calm focused workplace. But apps and technology can never replace the human connection we forge with our clients.

We do things a little differently at KGM and we’re looking for someone who wants to go along for that ride.
