Umpire is real. We want you to thrive, not just survive. Our model was passionately and purposefully created so everyone benefits from using the Umpire platform.
30+ year mitigation experts developed the Umpire platform. We realize that a lot of people do great work in the field on jobs but are overwhelmed by the thought of running or growing a business. You want to make more money now and build something for your future. For you, we've created a simple system that leverages technology and allows you to focus on doing the job right, while Umpire does the backend business. This model enables us to pay you the majority of the revenue.
This is our Primary Mitigator that does most Umpire jobs. You commit to taking our jobs for a 3-year agreement, and we honor that commitment by sending most of our jobs to you. This brings stability for both of us. The average income is $131,000 +. You are not an employee or a franchise, and you are free to work other jobs. The perfect setup for transitioning Veterans or employees who are already working in the mitigation industry. This is for the aspiring entrepreneur who wants to be their own boss.
Umpire is an additional pipeline of jobs for existing, small owner-operated cleaning businesses that want to fill the gaps in their job schedule. These are our Additional Mitigators.
This flexible option is excellent for individuals like firefighters, police, etc... looking to make extra income on their days off. Earn on your terms!
No matter what option you choose, this has to happen. Happy customers are everything.
No need to go to an office; we designed our platform with a 100% mobile focus. Everything gets done in the field.
If you like to work hard and smart, this is for you. Umpire provides rewarding and satisfying work for those who love helping people, enjoy working with their hands, and appreciate seeing the instant results of their work.
You need to have the essential tools: iPhone or Android phone, buckets, screwdriver, carpet knife, pry bar, hammer, etc...
You need a vehicle - one that can tow a trailer or fit the equipment inside. The Umpire model has used Subaru Foresters successfully. The car doesn't have to be a truck because technology has made the drying equipment smaller.
Umpire provides experienced, real-world, online, and hands-on training at no cost to you.
Umpire supplies the drying equipment: Moisture meter, flood pumper, fans, and dehumidifiers to use on our jobs. You don't have to take out a loan or spend your own money to buy and maintain equipment.
Umpire delivers dependable support 24/7.

To make sure it's the right fit and that everyone is protected, anyone who works with the Umpire platform has to meet the following standards before joining:
Verified reviews or reference
Umpire checks your references or review history. We continue to do this as long as you are on the platform. Your average customer rating must be 4.5 or higher out of 5 stars. The bottom line is: you need to be customer friendly and communicate well with the customer while you are on the job.

Umpire pays for the background check that you must pass every year. Major driving violations or a recent history of minor driving violations may result in disqualification. Convictions for felonies, violent crimes, sexual offenses, and registered sex offender status, among other types of criminal records, are also disqualifying.
