  • 8+ years of strategic finance, operational finance, FP&A, or investment banking experience at a high-growth technology startup or well-established company
  • 3+ years of team management experience
  • Experience owning budgets for major functional areas within an organization, and working with operators on day-to-day execution to hit targets
  • Thrive in high-performance cultures, handle stress well, and aren’t afraid of long hours in pursuit of meaningful work
  • Embrace ambiguity. Rapid change and learning is exciting to you, and you know how to find direction and craft a plan of action even when none is given to you
  • Lead by example and indirect influence. You excel at navigating a rapidly growing organization with many different cross-functional partners, gaining input and building consensus with key stakeholders as you go. You know how to organize and motivate a broad, diverse and geographically dispersed working team around a shared goal
  • Are relentless. Things never quite go according to plan. You have the determination and grit to keep working on a problem as new challenges emerge, while maintaining the flexibility to adjust plans or strategies as needed
  • Have a proven ability to earn the trust of senior leaders, and influence their thinking on key strategic decisions
  • Have experience building and reviewing highly complex models, and developing a team that sets the gold standard for financial modeling. You know how to distill complex financial data into digestible outputs and analyses, for use across the organization
  • Are equally comfortable operating at 10,000 feet and 1 foot. You don’t hesitate to get in the weeds and work at the lowest level of detail, but you’re just as comfortable thinking long-term and inspiring a team. No job is beneath you
  • Have a demonstrated interest in logistics, on-demand services, marketplaces and grocery (nice to have)
Responsibilities
  • Work with GMs and product leaders to size opportunities and make strategic decisions and investments
  • Oversee financial reporting and forecasting, and ensure we have a clear and detailed understanding of the drivers of growth, margin expansion and competitive positioning

  • Mentor and develop new & existing talent to help them achieve their professional goals and scale our team as we continue to grow
  • Advise our executive team on ways to invest our resources more efficiently, to move faster and do more
  • Build models and develop analytical frameworks to evaluate new partnership opportunities, understand ROI / payback of various initiatives, and forecast demand more accurately, just to name a few
  • Ensure we have necessary processes, systems and tools in place to streamline our operations and help us scale as quickly as possible
