Rex is creating new tech leadership to serve people. Big tech leadership has lost its social license to lead. They’re focused on extracting value, rather than creating it; muzzling dissent rather than freeing our voices; oppressing rebels rather than being the rebel. We are changing this. At Rex, technology will once again serve people. Review our culture page (https://www.rex.com/careers#company-culture) to understand what we are building. 

At the intersection of real estate and technology, Rex is a startup incubator continuing to launch companies within our ecosystem which are focused on PropertyTech, FinTech, and InsuranceTech. Our initiatives page (https://www.rex.com/initiatives) provides more details on current companies. 

We are currently seeking a Business Development Manager for PayUp. Our developing FinTech tool will enable fast, hassle-free capital for service providers. We are enabling the large group of middle to lower middle income workers to be paid faster. Rather than resorting to payday loans or pawning their belongings to pay for essential items, PayUp provides opportunity for the focus to be on growing businesses.

What you'll do:

  • Leading driver of cross-functional teams with the ability to translate long-term plans into actionable items
  • Communicate with team members with an extreme bias to personal ownership and action
  • Drive all aspects of the business from legal to design; build a product with excellence
  • Execute in a timely manner with a high caliber while maintaining discipline  
  • Attract, acquire, and mentor top talent as the team strategically expands
  • Ensure we build quickly to meet both short term goals and match expectations for long term durability and growth
  • Provide technical guidance to engineering teams and senior leaders

What you offer:

  • 3-7 years of experience in business development or related roles 
  • Experience managing and building high performing teams (4+ years)
  • Proven leader in operational excellence with a very high bar for success
  • Well-versed in market research and building tech products
  • Data-driven with experience building products with built in flexibility for growth
  • Ability to serve as a visionary leader while simultaneously focusing on strategy and tactics
  • Passionate about serving others through technology
  • Highly flexible with a willingness to do whatever it takes to propel the company forward
  • A strong bias towards action

What we offer:

  • Competitive salary and early-in equity awards
  • Competitive and comprehensive medical, dental, and vision plans
  • Peace of mind through company-paid short-term disability, long-term disability and life insurance
  • 401(K) with employer match
  • Unlimited (discretionary) PTO in addition to Holidays and your birthday off
  • Monthly gym membership stipend
  • Health Savings Account with employer contribution
  • Dependent Flexible Spending Account
  • Mental health telecounseling options
  • We are committed to serving others with a focus on faith, family, and freedom

From the top-down, we are committed to investing in the development of all team members in both a professional and personal setting. We host monthly company socials where employees and family members get together to build our community. Regular performance evaluations are intended to provide a feedback loop, providing opportunities for consistent growth on both ends.

An Insider's view of Rex

What’s the vibe like in the office?

The vibe at Rex is "Austin chill". We are a mix of laid-back, determined individuals who all have a quirky side that melds well together. Each day is filled with hilarious banter, intelligent collaboration and forward movement. An experience that you don't always get by working fully remote.
