PowerToFly approved because…

Simply put we know the CEO, Andrea, very very well. She is married to our cofounder, Milena Berry, and has helped us pioneer so many of the cultural principals at PowerToFly focused on helping people belong no matter their gender. Andrea has four kids, a strict work from home (or where you're most productive) policy, and she is one of the strongest entrepreneurs out there.

Andrea was formerly the CTO of Huffington Post (she was named Paul Berry then) and literally built the tech that propelled the company from a small blog to a powerhouse that was bought by AOL. She was also the CTO of AOL after the acquisition. Our other cofounder, Katharine Zaleski, got to work closely with Andrea when she was at Huffington Post too. It was a thrilling experience and Katharine continues to get advice from Andrea today. Join RebelMouse - you won't regret it! Oh and Andrea hires great people who we could write entire blogs about... but we have character limits on these pages :)

Who We are

RebelMouse is a unique company, with no office, 50+ people in 26 countries, and led by a transgender CEO who was the CTO of The Huffington Post before founding the company.

The Opportunity

RebelMouse is providing an exciting opportunity to individuals who love technology and are adept at translating product capabilities into solutions that solve problems for key stakeholders. You’ll engage these individuals, and then convey the right ideas, concepts, and synergies that bring new client opportunities to life. This is a chance to work closely with the Chief Strategy Officer and CEO to learn, collaborate, and grow tremendously.

We love people who bring value beyond their core expertise, who care about ideas and concepts, and who want their voice to be heard. We’re a small team, so you won’t be treated like a cog in the machine. We want you to love scalable solutions and actively take part in the creative process of driving company growth.

Who We're Looking For

We’re looking for an engaging individual with a strong work ethic and desire for advancement. You should be an excellent listener, assertive, persistent, and persuasive. You’re not afraid of rejection from prospects, and you don’t take it personally.

This is a position for someone who has a passion for learning, loves fast-paced work environments, thinks outside of the box instead of waiting for solutions to be handed to them, and continuously exceeds expectations.

  • Maintain accurate lead and account records in the CRM while adhering to all required processes and workflows
  • Understand client challenges and goals in order to facilitate client success
  • Prioritize tasks to meet business goals, grow the client base, and complete other tasks as assigned in a timely and accurate manner; attention to detail is key
  • Communicate in a timely manner internally and externally; be available to work during U.S. and European time zones as needed
  • Operate in a professional manner with limited supervision due to the remote nature of the position; hit clearly defined targets and goals through self motivation
Qualifications

  • Experience explaining new, disruptive solutions — both the strategic benefits and practical use cases — and have a thirst for consuming and understanding a steady stream of new product updates on a weekly basis
