Careers

We are builders, makers, and entrepreneurs; equal parts strategists and storytellers, anthropologists and economists; designers, technologists, and political scientists. There is no one Rebooter formula. Our team’s strength is our personal and professional diversity.

That said, we do share core characteristics. Rebooters are:

Entrepreneurial, with a bias toward action. Rebooters work toward the vision of a 21st century social contract with self-starter genes and an innate drive to strategize and do.

Humble, empathetic, and generous. We know what we don’t know, but are also eager to share our expertise. Group comes before self—entitlement and ego are checked at the door.

Open-minded and adaptable. We roll with the punches in different settings and work streams. Rebooters live to learn about new cultures and people, sans stereotypes. Global literacy is a core competency.

Inquiring and political, uncowed but diplomatic. We ask “Why?” to challenge conventional wisdom and power. No answers are taken at face value. We seek to understand and analyze the sociopolitical contexts behind them with respect and diplomacy. We are skeptical optimists at heart.

In addition to the above, Rebooters are  narrative-driven, analytical writers and articulate speakers. We adopt a client-services and detail-oriented approach to everything we do.
