Hi, we’re Rheaply 👋

Over the past year, the world has cultivated a new sense of appreciation for everyday stuff. With global supply chains collapsing and operating budgets shrinking across the board, we have seen the demand for goods and services skyrocket. The obvious solution to being more resourceful and cost-conscious has been to increase the value of everything already around us. At Rheaply, we’re helping organizations do that by developing better inventory management and resource sharing tools. Although rewarding, this problem is not ours alone to solve, which is why we need extraordinarily talented people like you to join our team. While we’re also excited to one day meet in person (and hopefully soon!), we are ready to conduct our entire interviewing and onboarding process remotely.

Founded in 2016, Rheaply, Inc. is a Chicago-based technology company focused on solutions for making organizations more efficient, sustainable, and connected. Rheaply has developed and launched the only exchange technology for researchers to share their ideas and surplus resources with colleagues to reduce time, costs, as well as environmental waste. On Rheaply’s Asset Exchange Manager (AxM), users from all departments can access resources and expertise from colleagues in the same organization or beyond. Recently, Rheaply has been featured in The New York Times, Nature, VERGE, and Greenbiz, chosen as a 10 Big Idea in Innovation by Chicago Magazine, a Circular Economy Solver by MIT SOLVE, and received the 2019 & 2020 Sustainable Procurement Leadership (SPLC) Award for Circular Economy Leadership among other notable awards and recognitions.

An Insider's view of Rheaply

What are some social events your company does?

In the past, we relied on our WeWork space to provide fun events for our team to join. Now, as we continue to work from home, it has forced us to get creative by hosting digital gaming happy hours, comedians to roast us on zooms calls or inspirational business leaders for lunch & learns.

Garr

Chief of Staff

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

It’s my first time working for a company virtually (I don't even know how tall our CEO is), but it still feels like I’ve been part of the family for a long time. We are a people-first team, and it's clear through our random catch up calls, all-hands meetings and pings on Slack. I’m genuinely excited for Monday morning, what’s better than that?

Nizar

Senior Director of Operations

How does the company support your career growth?

Rheaply has supported my career growth by giving me the tools to develop new skills based on my interests. I joined the marketing team but found myself interested in the technical side of our product. After expressing interest, I was given the tools to develop new skills and now work full-time with our team developing and testing our software!

Maddie

Senior Product Associate

How do you make yourself accessible to the rest of the team?

Even as our Rheaply team continues to grow, we continue to prioritize one-on-one meetings where no questions and ideas are off limits. Our goal is to support transparency, diversity of thought and staying personally connected.
