Finance Manager

Help build the analytical engine for a fast growing startup while defining the processes for P&L management, strategic planning, budgeting, invoicing, and cash-flow modeling.

Motivated by the challenge and opportunity to own projects from concept to completion, you are an inquisitive and proactive self-starter with a knack for seeing problems before they occur. You're known for designing efficient processes and telling complex stories with numbers. You thrive when using your strong interpersonal skills in collaborative teams across the company, yet still love to dive into problems on your own. Getting into the weeds doesn’t scare you, but while you love the details, you have the business sense to see the big picture. You want to work with a close-knit, fast-paced team that gives 1000% and has fun doing it.
