Meaningful work. Every day.
In a positive, caring, "Best Place to Work", and Best in Class luxury environment.
Put your luxury hotel opening skills into bringing JOY to others!
As a relatively small, privately owned company, Aegis Living doesn't answer to shareholders. We are able to invest in our people and resources to make our communities truly the best in the industry. With $400+ Million in real estate development right now, we are custom designing gorgeous communities to fit into the unique communities that they serve. Imagine opening up a brand new luxury community for seniors that is so beautiful, their children will want to move in with them! We're posting this as "Greater Seattle Area", because our goal is to hire "to the bench" and train the individual to eventually run one of our 13 existing communities, or perhaps even one of the four soon to open!
