Head of Talent | Based in LA, SF or Austin

About REX:


REX is using artificial intelligence and big data to disrupt the traditional real estate brokerage model, providing dramatically better outcomes and experiences for home buyers and sellers at a 2% cost instead of the traditional 5% to 6%. REX has substantially built the business in the cloud, with human involvement catalyzed by data and AI. In addition, REX employs the data that it collects to rationalize the purchase of mortgages, home insurance, escrow and other services, serving to greatly ease and reduce the cost of the home sale and purchase process. The data REX collects also allows it to manage the home as consumers’ largest asset over their lifetimes.


The Company has experienced explosive growth in its initial markets of California, New York, New Jersey, Texas, Colorado and Florida, growing 3-4x per year and expecting revenues of $60 million in 2020 and $100 million+ in 2021. REX is profitable on both a unit economics basis as well as in the cities where it has been operating for over a year. It is launching in 13 cities this year as it expands nationwide.


REX closed on its Series C financing of $50 million in December of 2018 to solidify its nationwide expansion into a targeted 70 markets across the United States by 2022. Backed by some of the most successful founders and CEOs in the country, REX is preparing for an IPO in the next 1-2 years.
