Rhino is looking for team members who believe that renters deserve greater financial freedom when moving into a home, and that property owners shouldn’t have to stick to the status quo. With over $45 billion tied up in security deposits for 110 million renters in the United States alone, we built nationally recognized technology-driven products to help bring renting into the 21st century. Our solutions help property owners manage their deposits end-to-end, and renters can choose between security deposit insurance or a traditional cash deposit, in addition to renter’s insurance.

Rhino’s remote-first culture is driven by our five core values: own your role, raise the bar, be customer obsessed, just be kind, and commit to the Crash (a Crash is a group of Rhinos!). These values help guide us to do our best work and attract talent that helps us achieve our key goals. Our ideal candidate is someone who has worked in a fast-paced, ever-evolving tech environment, and isn’t afraid to roll up their sleeves and jump right in.

We’ve already saved over a billion dollars for renters and are trusted in over 2 million homes nationwide, and most importantly, we’re just getting started.

  • Collaborate with all functions of the company to ensure data needs are addressed and the required data is modeled and available to analysts and end-users
  • Provide advice, guidance, and direction to carry out business goals
  • Balance short term and long term needs to ensure that the architecture can scale and evolve accordingly
  • Scale and expand our analytics offerings, skills and technologies

We’re ideally seeking:

  • Minimum 5-7+ years of direct management experience, overseeing a high-performing team
  • Experience leading a data analytics and/ or data science function as both an individual contributor or people leader
  • Familiarity with the following tech stack requirements: SQL, Python, Tableau

Feel you partially or mostly meet the requirements?

At Rhino, we’re not looking for someone that will check every box. In fact, if we were, we’d miss out on some extremely talented and capable people. Research has shown, in particular, that women and other marginalized groups apply for jobs when they check every box. So, if you find yourself on the fence because you don’t meet every requirement, please apply anyway! We’d love to meet and discuss the opportunity, your skills and passions, and see if we could be a match!
