Our mission is to give renters everywhere greater financial freedom to plan and enjoy their lives.

Our first product eliminates cash security deposits and puts more money back in renters’ pockets. With over $45 billion tied up in security deposits for 110 million renters in the United States alone, it’s time for security deposits to officially become a thing of the past. Tying up money at one of life’s biggest and most expensive moments just isn’t fair.

So we threw out the antiquated “way of doing things” and built a technology-driven insurance product to help bring renting into the 21st century. With Rhino, millions of renters across the country now have the opportunity to save with our award-winning deposit insurance. We’ve already saved hundreds of millions of dollars for renters and are trusted in over 1 million homes nationwide, and most importantly, we’re just getting started...

What We’re Looking For:

The VP of Finance will oversee, build and lead a team to bring operational rigor to finance, while supporting and refining Rhino’s overall strategic planning to drive opportunities for the growth of Rhino’s businesses. The position will manage the accounting, corporate finance, FP&A, and strategic finance functions. As a member of the Leadership Team, the VP of Finance will report to the CEO and work closely and productively with executive management to influence, refine and implement strategy. The ideal candidate will have worked in a successful high growth company and can bring those experiences to Rhino as we continue to define the future of renting. We currently have a remote-forward, hybrid work policy.  There is not mandatory return to the office, however, this role will require travel to our NYC HQ on a frequent basis.

Location

Rhino’s temporary NYC office is located in the bustling Nomad neighborhood - boasting excellent Korean BBQ and the Empire State Building! As the Rhino team is hybrid, we'd like to think we have a couple hundred "mini-offices" in 30 states across the country, too.

An Insider's view of Rhino

What’s the vibe like in the office?

I feel connected to my team members in work and leisure - we get right into work but we also like to joke around. Infectious laughter often fills the gaps throughout the day or during lunch when we eat together. There’s even a chance, especially on Fridays, that the late crew will grab a drink and unwind while finishing up for the day.

Yemi

Manager, Software Engineering

What projects are you most excited about?

I spend time meeting with Mayors, City Council members, state legislators, and advocacy groups to share how Rhino can bring change to communities and impact the lives of renters immediately. These partnerships are essential in advancing our goal of getting the option to use Rhino in front of every renter.

Jordan

Director, Public Policy

What does career growth look like on your team?

My career has grown exponentially since starting a year ago. I’m challenged to lead so much of customer success - it would’ve taken years to acquire this much experience somewhere else. I’m growing my career in tandem with a thriving company, and I feel like my best self everyday.

Jenna

Manager, Support

What unique initiatives do you have that encourage innovation?

Twice a month we used to host dinner at our HQ for the whole team. It’s been a tradition since the early days, as a time for everyone to learn about different work streams and unwind, helping to strengthen relationships. Thankfully, we’ve been able to keep that tradition alive and found opportunities to break bread together as a family over Zoom.

Paraag

CEO & Co-Founder

What makes someone successful on your team?

Industry and technical experience will always be important factors but my teammates' curiosity and drive make all the difference. We have a great culture of asking questions and collaborating on projects; our work is rarely a solo act. If this excites you, you'll be in great company at Rhino.

Matty

Director, Growth Marketing
