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.


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?


Senior Solutions Manager

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!


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.
