Come work with us!

Cold Ants is a relatively young company. We signed our first contract in January of 2017 and are now managing more than forty condo associations. We value customer satisfaction and work-life balance.

Assistant Condo Association Manager

Part time (10-20 hours per week)


Cold Ants Properties is a condominium association management firm specializing in small condo buildings. We are currently seeking an Assistant Condo Association Manager.

We need both on-site work (meeting contractors, collecting job requirements, providing access for repairs) and remote work (phone and email with vendors and condo board members, preparing reports, digital record-keeping). The total number of hours needed (on-site and remote) is between 10 to 20 hours to start.

Important - while some of the remote work can be done at any time and some is evenings and weekends, most of the work has to happen during regular business hours when our vendors are working.

Cold Ants is growing and we are seeking an individual to grow with us, working towards future full-time positions. The Assistant Condo Association Manager will assist with financial and physical management of condo associations, all located in the District of Columbia (with a concentration in Petworth, Columbia Heights, Shaw, 14th St., Adams Morgan, and Dupont)

Starting salary $16-20 per hour, with opportunity for bonuses based on new client referrals.

Ideal Candidate
  • Local - things often pop up on short notice
  • Working knowledge of basic home maintenance (i.e., handy)
  • Flexible schedule
  • Ability to work with little oversight
  • Trustworthy (you’ll have access to buildings)
  • Patient (contractors are notoriously delayed)
  • Interest in real estate or construction management
  • A desire to grow with Cold Ants and take on more responsibility.
Primary Duties
  • Handle communications with owners and board members regarding condo association business and maintenance needs
  • Meet contractors on-site to provide building access and confirm scope of work for maintenance or repairs
  • Be familiar with Association governing documents and other policies and procedures
  • Perform other administrative and property management duties as requested
  • Reliable transportation - most of our buildings are in Columbia Heights, Petworth, Shaw, 14th St, Adams Morgan, and Dupont, but a few are all over the city. Parking can be a challenge, so alternative modes of transportation (cycling!) are especially useful
  • Respect for our owners - we are frequently guests in owners’ homes, and these owners should never be able to tell we were there unless something has been fixed
  • COVID precautions - the position does involve limited indoor work with other people. While it is difficult to follow the ever-changing requirements, Cold Ants will always defer to the client on masking.
Additional qualifications
  • Strong oral and written communication skills
  • Experience working with and managing contractors
  • Problem solving skills
  • Ability to work independently and proactively
  • Sense of humor
Not required but great to have
  • Accounting and finance experience to help with Association budgeting
  • Programming experience, especially Python - runs on Python and we've automated a lot of repetitive tasks with coding (and hope to automate more!).
  • Spanish - many of the contractors we work with are native Spanish speakers and being able to communicate in Spanish is a big advantage
  • Marketing skills - we could grow even more with the right emphasis on marketing
  • Cycling enthusiasm! The best way to get around the city is by bike! Cold Ants will pay for a Capital Bikeshare membership and reasonable usage fees

Cold Ants Properties is an Equal Opportunity Employer. Our clients are diverse, and we value a team that is diverse as well. Much of what we do is construction management, which tends to be a male-dominated field. We are committed to providing our team with the support needed to thrive, no matter who you are.
