Project Coordinator

| New York
Common is hiring a Project Coordinator to source, procure, and manage the installation of furniture, fixtures and equipment inside our homes. From working with our Interior Decorators, furniture sales reps, warehouse and logistics managers and manual labor on site during home move in, our Project Coordinators are responsible for all aspects of preparing our new homes for our members.
About Common
Common is changing the standard for residential living by creating, designing and operating all-inclusive shared homes for those who live life in common. We combine community, convenience, and flexibility to make living with others a joy instead of a chore. Headquartered in New York, Common was founded by General Assembly co-founder Brad Hargreaves in early 2015.
Common partners with real estate owners and developers throughout the US to create community-minded homes. By doing this, we’re addressing the fundamental supply and demand issues that underlie housing in major cities today. Common opened its doors to its first building in Brooklyn in October 2015.

About the Role
Common provides convenience and community in all of our homes. By furnishing our homes from the bed and sofa, through to the silverware, blender and linens, our members are able to move in without the typical pain points of the “moving process”. We also recognize that in shared living there is the dilemma of how to decorate, and “who takes what” when they leave. By furnishing our homes we create beautiful spaces for our members to enjoy and remove many of the things that roommates can fight over. It is the Project Coordinator’s responsibility to ensure that, on opening day, our homes deliver on this promise, and that the home is ready for our members when they move in.
