Gecko's complete and connected solutions combine wall-climbing robots, industry-leading sensors, and an AI-powered data platform to provide customers with a unique window into the current and future health of their physical assets.

Role at a Glance

We’re looking for a hands-on Workplace Experience Manager who will play a key role in creating a welcoming workspace and streamlining daily operations. The Workplace Experience Manager will be the primary point of contact for the Houston office, partnering with the rest of the Office Operations team to define what a first-class experience looks like for Gecko employees and visitors. This person will accomplish this by getting buy-in from key stakeholders in Houston, evaluating needs around the office, problem-solving to meet those needs, providing administrative support to each function, and ultimately executing in a high-quality way on administrative tasks.

The ideal candidate will be someone who can build strong rapport and trust, and develop and scale processes, and get buy-in from cross departmental stakeholders. This person is energized by a "no task to small" mentality, and will be a key change-maker within operations at Gecko.

  • Coordinate with People and Recruiting teams to manage in-person interviewing and onboarding for candidates and new hires, including orientation and training.
  • Coordinate with Sales and Business Development teams to support customer meetings, demos and training on site.
