  • Create and implement systems for accurate and efficient financial reporting and analysis.
  • Continuously seek process improvements and implement best practices in financial planning and analysis.
  • Mentor and develop junior team members, fostering growth, innovation, and excellence.

What we’re looking for in our ideal candidate:

  • Bachelor's degree in Finance, Accounting, Economics, or a related field.
  • 5+ years of experience in FP&A, ideally in the SaaS or technology industry.
  • Proven experience in building and leading FP&A functions.
  • Strong proficiency in financial modeling and analysis.
  • Experience with financial planning software (e.g., Adaptive Insights, Anaplan).
  • Proficiency in business intelligence tools (e.g., Tableau, Power BI).
  • Excellent communication and presentation skills.
  • Strong analytical and problem-solving abilities.
  • Self-directed, able to work independently, and manage multiple priorities.
  • High level of integrity and dependability with a strong sense of urgency and results orientation.
