Rhino is charging into the real estate space to unlock over $190 billion in cash security deposits. We are building products, like our affordable insurance policy, to put money back in renters' pockets.

The Director of Public Policy  will join an accomplished team in a leadership role, helping us build the foundation of a company that is positioned to revolutionize renting.  

In this role you will:

  • Develop and execute a state and local government relations strategy to grow Rhino’s brand awareness and perception among stakeholders.
  • Build and maintain relationships with government leaders and influencers within target markets and make Rhino part of the national conversation on housing policy and affordability.
  • Represent Rhino in all interactions with elected officials, and government and agency officials.
  • Work cross-functionally with Rhino’s leadership team, helping to develop public policy priorities that advance Rhino's operations and business interests.
  • Track legislation relevant to Rhino at municipal, county, state and federal levels.
  • Engage the executive team on various government relations efforts, keeping them up to date and involving them in decisions as appropriate.

In terms of qualifications, we’re ideally seeking:

  • 3-8 years of experience as a government staffer for a legislator (city council, state legislature), an aide to a mayor/governor, a legislative affairs agency,  or in a policy role at a high-growth company.
  • A gritty self-starter, who is a strong communicator and can build and execute on a government relations strategy.
  • A strategic thinker that can map government relations planning to greater business objectives.
  • Previous work in housing development, real estate or startups is a plus.

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

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.

Jenna

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.

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.
