The job

Lift and/or Escalator Engineer

Who are they?

🚀 Our mission: Put the best of people and technology at the heart of the built environment. By combining the expertise of field engineers and the agility of technology, we seek to be a leading player in facilitating the economic, digital, environmental and social transition for the better and in particular in the advent of the smart building.

WeMaintain began in 2017 with a simple observation: for years, the relationships and treatment of asset owners, building managers and engineers have been kept to a minimum standard within the building maintenance industry. Elevators that only work every other day or escalators that break when you have a suitcase - does that sound familiar? This market is very niche and yet it represents 100 billion euros. In order to meet customer needs, WeMaintain has recently moved into fire safety systems through an acquisition in the sector.

We are challenging and disrupting the industry with the conviction that combining technology and innovation for the development of digital tools, and the enhancement of technical professions will be successful:

  1. By giving back autonomy, time and recognition to the engineers: the true experts in the field and indispensable for successful performance
  2. By building our digital solutions with our own technology, hardware and software, in order to provide real-time, reliable and comprehensive data and information to optimise building management

    Everything in the company is built around its values: Care, Grit, Uniqueness! We make sure that we apply them every day, whether within our teams or with our customers and partners.

    🇫🇷🇬🇧🇸🇬 After building a team of diverse backgrounds and skill sets, raising €38.8 million, opening Paris, London and Singapore offices and been adopted by transport, office and residential real estate players, such as Allianz Real Estate, KeolisAmey Docklands (Operators of the DLR), WeWork, Savills and CBRE, we are accelerating our growth, and for that, we need you!

Job description
