Solving challenges is the very foundation of who we are. After all, our founder, sea captain Robert Fergusson, didn’t particularly set out to invent rust preventive paint. He just wanted to keep his ship intact and stumbled upon a valuable solution. Today, that discovery is Rust-Oleum Corporation.

When we see a problem, we work diligently until we’ve perfected a solution, which has led to some of the most cutting edge, durable and innovative products in the industry. Our creative and talented team of over 2,000 people across every corner of the world help us remain the global leader in protective paints and coatings for both home and industry.

  • Write metadata for all consumer website content
  • Work with brand marketing teams to deliver the best possible product experience
  • Work with the internal Web Development team to ensure consistent navigation across web properties is maintained
