Redstone is one of the fastest growing fintech startups in the country focused on streamlining creation of esoteric alternative asset classes. The fintech disruptor dismantled the MBS ecosystem, streamlining it with a digital platform that employs AI and machine learning tools to eliminate unnecessary steps and redundant time-wasting approval processes. Redstone's growing MBS partner network includes institutional and retail investors, forward flow partners, brokerages and mortgage lenders.

In pursuit of that mission, Redstone is seeking a Business Development Associate to join the Sales and Operations team in Chicago. The individual will play a critical role impacting the growth of the organization. This role will be working with Redstone’s network of partners with dedication to create and apply an effective sales strategy for all of Redstone’s products.

  • Develop a growth strategy focused both on financial gain and customer satisfaction
  • Conduct research to identify new markets and customer needs
  • Promote the company’s products/services addressing or predicting clients’ objectives
  • Provide trustworthy feedback and after-sales support
  • Prepare and communicate performance narratives to senior leadership
  • Participate in process improvement projects
  • Planning and overseeing new marketing initiatives
  • Increasing the value of current customers while attracting new ones

  • Bachelor’s degree in business, marketing or related field
  • Experience in sales, marketing or related field
  • Strong communication skills and IT fluency
  • Ability to manage complex projects and multi-task
  • Excellent organizational skills
  • Ability to flourish with minimal guidance, be proactive, and handle uncertainty
  • Proficient in Word, Excel and PowerPoint

We believe talent and drive are worth more than words on a resume, ideas and execution are more important than titles and everyone is an owner. We collaborate with highly-motivated, intelligent people to stay true to our motto - Redstoners are doers.

At Redstone, we’re looking for people invigorated by our mission, not just those who simply check off all the boxes.

An Insider's view of Redstone

What’s the vibe like in the office?

The office vibe is great because of the amount of control we have over it. One of the benefits is that we are free to shape the culture as we like. It's a true team environment in the sense that everyone has a job to do to help us achieve a common goal. The support is great but not blind, we all challenge each other to be our best in everything.

What does your typical day look like?

There are always a million different projects undergoing at Redstone, especially within the marketing department. This is what makes every day unique and exciting. I am currently looking forward to the revamp of our main website and the launch of an additional arm of our business. We're revisiting the website with fresh eyes and determination.

Rebekah Engel

Head of Marketing

What makes someone successful on your team?

The ability to make an impact in multiple different areas of the company and turn that impact into a manager role can make someone successful at Redstone. We recruit individuals that can bring an entrepreneurial spirit to their role and understand that their efforts are needed to create positive change in the company as a whole.

Owen Rost

Head of Business Development

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

As a leader, it is important that my team can execute things well autonomously. This is achievable by letting them discover their own answers through trial and error. This process, in addition to short feedback loops and multiple iterations, allows them to be more creative on their own, as they become more efficient and effective problem solvers.

Gia Liu

VP of Technology and Capital Markets

What projects are you most excited about?

I am most excited to learn and implement the technology and software that Redstone has to offer. But most importantly I am looking forward to implementing my skill set with the sales team and moving forward with customer success improvements.
