THIS SOUNDS GREAT, BUT WHAT EXACTLY ARE YOU LOOKING FOR?
As the Director of Finance and a member of the business operations team, you’ll own all aspects of finance and accounting. By partnering with senior leaders as a finance expert, you’ll influence long-term business strategy and own cross-functional execution of global FP&A initiatives to ensure that we become an efficient, sustainable business.
What you’ll do:
- Lead and be responsible for global finance and accounting policies, processes, and execution
- Provide financial analysis, long-range plans, guidance, and reports to the leadership team. Communicate modeling, analyses, and findings in a clear, accurate, and compelling way
- Develop forecasts to support decision-making, provide visibility, and drive financial discipline throughout the organization
- Lead the financial planning and budgeting process in close collaboration with cross-functional leaders
- Communicate business unit financial results and variance drivers to facilitate understanding and action planning
- Establish appropriate financial reporting to support day-to-day management of financials in collaboration with stakeholders
- Support the implementation of new tools and technology; leverage them to develop infrastructure and processes to improve how we do things
- Identify, validate, and quantify risks and opportunities
- Manage relationships with our finance partners
- Educated Formal education in Finance, Business, or similarly highly analytical field
- Experienced 5+ years of relevant FP&A, financial analysis, modeling, or finance business partner experience preferably supporting senior business leaders. Experience in a growth stage software company preferred
- Process Driven You’re someone that geeks out on processes and is a sucker for making sure things stay on track. The goal is to be meticulous enough for quality output but not meticulous to the point of indecision. Huge plus if you come with experience managing complex projects
- Motivated Things move fast here – we’re looking for someone that is able to learn quickly on the spot and isn’t afraid to dive into a new topic.
- An effective communicator You’re great at communicating, without requiring meetings. If something is unclear you reach out and ask questions. You’re comfortable owning, communicating and presenting information on specific projects or initiatives, both in writing and in person.
- Accountable We expect that you can work independently to run with a problem and come up with a solution. Receiving & giving feedback is crucial to that – you should be someone that’s comfortable with a feedback culture
