Facilities Manager - San Francisco

San Francisco, CA
Full Time
Mid Level

Want to boggle the minds of a few thousand perfect strangers? Leave people elated, albeit wistfully recognizing they may have just ended the experience of their lifetime?

Great! Here at NPU, we are looking for a dynamic Facilities Manager to help activate and transform The Bay Area’s most iconic venues and public spaces.  You will be responsible for keeping our venues clean and in perfect working order so our partners can create an awesomazing guest experience.  In other words, this position is about delivering an excellent venue and fantastic service while working closely with the Production and Operations teams.     

Who We Are 

We are Non Plus Ultra — a passionate team of compulsive go-getters, resourceful rabble-rousers and community-building do-gooders. We activate historic, one-of-a-kind real estate properties by partnering with global brands, visionary artists, and community leaders to create unparalleled experiences. Iconic, timeless, unique… our venues include the storied Palace of Fine Arts and the landmark San Francisco Mint.  We work with our partners to create incredible performances, elevated experiences, large-scale conferences, community activations, and mind-blowing events with some of the world’s largest companies including Facebook, Gucci, Pepsi, Refinery 29, etc.  We trade in the improbable, dabble in the unimaginable, and go to the edge of what is possible for our partners — that is, after all, non plus ultra.  

Who You Are 

You’re a self-starter with contagious energy and a commitment to your venue. You are also a diligent planner, compulsive fixer, and team player. You set high goals (because those are the most fun to crush).  You speak our language (which, importantly, does not have a word for ‘No’ but does have a seemingly infinite number of ways to say ‘Yes’). You have no time to waste complaining about what is broken because you’re too damn busy fixing it. You’re looking for a job that doesn’t dim your shine at a company that allows you to burn your brightest.
