Position Summary

Imagine if you could have been an early employee at a venture like Uber, which disrupted the entire taxi industry or AirBNB, which disrupted the hotel industry. This could be your opportunity if you’re interested in the property and marketplace industry.

We are a fast growing #proptech start up in the Real Estate space, disrupting Property Management globally. We bring transparency, trust and efficiency and marketplace products and services to creating an ecosystem around an industry that is prime for change. We have a centralised business model and cover nationally across Australia with a small footprint in the UK and on a path to expand globally over the next year.

The overall mission of yabonza is to do property management better and to provide our customers exceptional service and an experience that exceed customer expectations.

What We're Seeking


We are seeking an energetic Repairs and Maintenance Manager to join the team and assist in fulfilling our vision. This is a role for someone with initiative and with the opportunity to progress quickly.
