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.


Software Engineer

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.


Public Policy Director

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.


Customer Success Manager

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.


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.
