About the Role


The Head of Operations and Finance will drive our evolution from a scrappy, fast-growing tech startup to a well-oiled professional company built for scale. You’ll need to do this while maintaining the best elements of our culture: quick iteration, a bias toward action, close-knit team-oriented culture, and a passionate, mission-driven environment. 


You will lead the financial strategy and health of the company, building and operating our entire finance function. On day one, you will prioritize the key initiatives that drive success: everything from resourcing staff, to building our multi-year forecast.


Beyond owning all financial operations, you will also expand our business operations division and strategy. This includes owning the operational cadence across the business, helping plan, budget, and track OKRs, and own special initiatives such as market expansion and offshore operations. 


You will be the one thinking about the future and how to get there.
