Rust-Oleum is looking for a Brand Analyst who is willing to work

Solving challenges is the very foundation of who we are. After all,
in the beginning, our founder, sea captain Robert Fergusson, didn't
particularly care about paint. When he founded our company in 1921,
he just wanted to keep his ship intact and stumbled upon a valuable
solution. Today, that discovery is Rust-Oleum Corporation.
The same passion that drove the Captain to spend his next few years
creating the world's first rust-preventative paint still drives us
today. 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 2000 people across every corner of the
world, help us remain the global leader in protective paints and
coatings for both home and industry.
