Director, Special Projects

Company: Rex
Location: Austin
Posted on: January 16, 2022

Job Description:

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 ( 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 ( provides more details on current companies.

We are hiring a Director to join the Special Projects team to identify, capture or resolve the highest value opportunities and problems facing Rex. Gravitas and the ability to command the respect of a cross-functional team is needed. You will work alongside senior leadership within Rex which provides access across all teams. Project team members need high aptitude for strategically identifying problems and opportunities; you are not afraid to roll up your sleeves to tackle the issues at hand. With raw talent, street smarts, systematic thinking, and the hustle of a true builder - you will find a way or make one.

What You'll Do

  • Identify strategic direction and business plans for an internal venture studio
  • Perform benchmark exercises to determine best practices within Rex capabilities, then drive a cross-functional team to restructure and close gaps
  • Analyze investment strategies + opportunities and execute on those opportunities when necessary
  • Product "deep dives" across our tech company(s), identifying ways to improve the customer experience and leading initiatives to follow through on recommendations
    Who You Are
    • An undergraduate degree with 5-7 years of experience
    • A strong track record of systematic thinking
    • Exceptional character, talent, drive, and teaming ability
    • An entrepreneurial nature with a fearless 'think outside the box' mentality
    • Extreme bias to execute
    • Willingness to work across a multitude of teams, capabilities, and projects
    • Strong communication skills (written and verbal)
      Before you apply, review these resources to better understand our culture and mission:

        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.
