We’re looking for someone who is obsessed with efficiency. Someone who is never paralyzed by a lengthy “to-do” list, but is instead energized as they begin checking off tasks. If you love teamwork, breaking projects down into bite-size pieces, and then diving in head first, keep reading…
Who You Are
You’re a team player. You thrive in an environment where you can collaborate and work toward a common goal.
You’re incredibly organized and detail-oriented. You love checklists and the satisfaction that comes from making things happen.
You’re a multitasker. You are able to manage several different projects and deadlines simultaneously, while maintaining your focus.
You’re exceptionally detail oriented. You are a great proofreader. Others count on you to help find mistakes.
You’re assertive. You aren’t someone who is shy or afraid of speaking your mind.
You learn from your mistakes. At KCM, we realize no one is perfect. We all make mistakes, but the most important thing is to learn from those mistakes. You’re not one to focus on what went wrong, but rather on what you can do better next time around.
You’re ambitious and proactive. You don’t stop trying when you reach a hurdle. Instead, you leap right over the hurdle and keep moving toward your goal. You proactively find solutions and lead yourself well.
You don’t need the spotlight to feel successful. Helping other people is how you define your own success.
You constantly strive to make things better than they currently are. At KCM, we’re always pushing the envelope on how we can raise the bar and educate more real estate professionals, which, in turn, educates families across the nation. You don’t believe in the status quo. In your opinion, competing against yourself is the ultimate test of your abilities.
Who You Probably Are Not
- Someone who is looking for constant change. At KCM, many of the content and projects we work on are cyclical in nature.

- Someone who hates deadlines.
- Someone who is looking to write their own content.
What You Ideally Possess
- Strong Microsoft Office Suite skills
- Basic knowledge of InDesign

How You Might Spend Your Days at KCM

With that said, here are some things you’ll take the lead on:
- Organizing and managing the KCM Monthly Market Report
- Set deadlines for completion and polishing eGuides
- Daily blog posting
- Updating monthly slides and graphs
- Miscellaneous tasks and projects related to the Content Team
- Owning timelines and due dates for projects
What We Do at KCM
For the past ten years, KCM has been partnering with real estate agents to help families as they go through the home buying and selling process. We do this by helping agents better understand what’s happening in the overall real estate market so they can communicate the impact it has on their clients.
We believe every family should feel confident when buying and selling a home.
We believe in education. It’s the responsibility of a real estate professional to educate and serve their clients so that they can make confident and powerful decisions that they feel good about.
We believe the best way to help families is to understand what’s happening in the market, why it’s happening, how it impacts consumers, and how to effectively communicate this information.
Who We Are at KCM
KCM is a pretty awesome place to work, in fact, we’re even certified as a Great Place to Work! We are also honored to be on Forbes Magazine’s “Top 100 Best Small and Medium Workplaces in the Country” list for four years running!
Working with the KCM Crew feels like you’re getting paid to hang out with friends. We definitely work hard and will challenge you to do and be your best, but we’re more like family and friends than “office co-workers.” If you’re looking for a fun, exciting, challenging work environment, then KCM may be the place for you. You will be challenged, you will be pushed to grow, and we hope you will push us forward as well.
