The Company
Perch is transforming the way people buy and sell their homes. Simplifying it all, to the way it should have always been; fair and true to market, straightforward, easy. Every year in the U.S., $1.5 trillion of single family residences transact, generating over $120 billion of fees in a process that has changed little in decades. For the average American, the home purchase and sale process takes months, creates anxiety and is filled with uncertainty and hassle. Perch offers a modern alternative, making one of life's biggest decisions -- the sale and purchase of a home –so stress free, fair and simple that people cannot imagine any other way.

Perch is headquartered in New York City and has 100+ employees in New York and Texas. We have raised $250 million in financing from top tier investors including: Firstmark, Accomplice and Juxtapose. 

The Role

The Customer Experience Associate plays a critical role in generating new business opportunities through inbound and outbound sales calls and will be the first point of contact between homeowners and Perch. 

The ideal candidate will have 1-2 years experience in a sales role, customer service role or in the real estate industry. The right candidate will be friendly, organized, and trustworthy, in order to create an exceptional customer experience. One of the things our customers love the most about the Perch experience is the level of support they get. In this role there will be an opportunity for ongoing mentorship by Perch Sales Leadership.

  • Be the first point of contact between homeowners and Perch, leveraging phone, text and email communication
  • Generate new business through inbound and outbound sales calls

An Insider's view of Perch

How does your team reward individual success?

At Perch, we are really big on celebrating both team wins and individual successes. We highlight people who go above and beyond to embody our Perch Values. This is done through monthly nominations that are shared at our Town Halls.

Rich Danner

Customer Experience Manager

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

Perch is a hyper-connected company and cross-departmental collaboration is key to our success and culture. On any given day, I am working with investments, contracts, field ops and title to drive conversion. Since we have an office in NY and Austin, teams connect through break outs, zoom meetings, our internal platform and, most notably, Slack.

Samantha Hurley

Customer Experience Manager

What makes someone successful on your team?

By blending our personalities, knowledge, experience and skills to create a cohesive team of contributors, all team members feel valued. Successful team members show grit and drive and stay engaged and excited as we grow. While everybody is great at their individual role that value and connection is ultimately what creates a successful team member.

Kathryn McCurley

Listing Manager

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

As an early-stage fast growing company, we're faced with daily challenges and tall goals. It's important to hold all team members accountable, provide a balance of autonomy and guidance, and create an environment where it's okay to fail. This supports creativity and encourages your team to be resourceful and solution-oriented.

Thomas Lalonde

Head of Sales

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

Our team's ideas and actions directly influence the company's acquisition of real estate and our profitability attainment.  Being a part of the company's direction in changing the way people buy and sell real estate, with the full support of our seasoned senior leaders and cross-functional teams, is what makes this job a dream.
