Rex is a billion-dollar technology, investment, and real estate company led by Peter Rex. We are on a mission to create new tech leadership out of Austin to serve people. Our website describes our mission in detail, how it connects to all the businesses we are launching, and the people behind the company. 

We recently launched a program called “The Special Projects Internship” to hire and train the future entrepreneurs of the world. This will be a rewarding training experience to give you insight and prepare you for a life as a tech company executive. 

What you’ll do:  

  • Get deployed on important 1-4 week missions across the Rex ecosystem that requires highly intelligent polymaths.
  • Be involved in projects ranging from product, design, engineering, sales, recruiting, culture building, etc. Your projects will typically align with your superpowers.
  • Work closely with executives as an apprentice and provide them leverage while learning immensely from their experience.
  • Read business books with fellow Interns and engage in book discussions.
  • Attend bi-weekly dinners with Executives in the Rex Ecosystem and learn from their stories and experiences.

Who you are:  

  • A current college student who is passionate about becoming one of the best entrepreneurs in the world and willing to go through an intense internship experience to fast track their journey.
  • You have the schedule flexibility to work 10 hours a week (at $20-$30/ hour) and have the ability to get to our office in the Northwest Hills area (off Far West Blvd)
  • You have strong skills in either engineering, design, or business but generally good at most things you attempt. 
  • Growing up, you were always flexible and quick to think on your feet.
  • When you got stuck on a problem or hit a dead-end, your first instinct was to think outside the box. You sought out creative solutions. Rather than wonder, "Why?" you asked yourself, "How?"
  • Your ability to quickly adapt and move forward in the face of challenges always impresses your peers, professors, and employers.
  • You thrive on the opportunity to work directly with customers, engaging them through your creative approaches.

Before you apply, review these resources to better understand our culture and mission:

  • Rex ecosystem initiatives
  • Peter Rex writing in WSJ about moving Rex from Seattle to Austin
  • Peter Rex on Fox Business
  • Peter Rex on Bloomberg Radio

What we offer:

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.

The company has strong virtues which they take very seriously. Part of those virtues includes empathizing and caring for their employees.
