Our Mission


We've been around since 1965, and we continue to grow throughout the West Coast. We’re now the largest, privately held owner of multifamily & commercial properties in the San Francisco Bay Area. With a long, stable history and a tradition of promoting from within, Prometheus offers the chance to learn and grow. At Prometheus we believe the employment relationship is a two way street. Yes, we want you to earn a fair day’s pay for the work you do but, more importantly, we want you to feel that Prometheus is a HOME for your ideas and career.





Your Role and Impact


At Prometheus, our commercial real estate portfolio contains about 1.2 million square feet of Class A office and retail space. Our Commercial Real Estate team is focused on providing a quality business environment for tenants and consistently delivering the commercial equivalent of the "I Am Home" experience to life. Our Commercial Real Estate team is searching for a Building Utility Engineer to help deliver this experience by performing skilled technical work to assist with the preservation and maintenance of the commercial building equipment found in our commercial properties.


Your Primary Responsibilities Include:

  • Daily Operations – You will assist in the safe and efficient operation of all systems in the facility, monitoring conditions throughout the building in partnership with the Chief Engineer and Sr. Building Engineer. You will help operate, maintain, clean, test and repair everything that keeps our buildings running, such as heaters, pumps valves, appurtenances, cooling coils, air compressors, distribution lines, and pneumatic lines.
  • Technical Repair - If and when equipment breaks down or malfunctions occur, you will work with the team to locate the source of trouble and make the necessary repairs. Ultimately you will help the team operate, maintain and repair all types of technical building systems, including motors engines, electronics, pumps, and a whole lot more.
  • Team Support – Whether it's creating custom reports and journals, scheduling vendors, or reading meters and gauges, you have a “people first” mindset and are passionate about helping our Prometheans in whatever way you can. When all of your normally schedule work is done, you find yourself asking "what else can I do to help?"


Here’s More of the Nitty-Gritty:

  • Your Experience - Building maintenance experience in Class A high-rise buildings or mixed-use commercial space is nothing new to you. You have familiarity with FACP, electrical, Fire Life Safety Systems, building automation tools, locks, plumbing, and HVAC equipment.
  • You can take "On-Call" Hours and have the ability to work at multiple commercial sites. Sometimes emergencies happen, which is why our teams share the responsibility for the "On-Call" emergency readiness response. Of course you will have plenty of time to be "Off-Call", we still want you to take vacations and come back refreshed and relaxed. We offer great vacation perks, including your birthday!
  • Your Cultural Traits - Although we’re a highly dispersed organization by the nature of our business, our Prometheans are strongly united by our Purpose, Mission and our Cultural Traits, which are a blend of Team Oriented, Communicator, Entrepreneurial, Passionate, Self-Starter, Creative, Principled, and Brand Ambassador skills
  • Your Education - A high school diploma or general education degree (GED) is required.
