Do you enjoy the intellectual challenge of helping a diverse set of startups grow? Do you strive for days that are different, because each client has its own unique challenges? Can you visualize a business and enjoy describing that business through financials? Have you modeled complex business processes in financial terms?
Become a trusted ally to CEOs and management teams through efficient, intelligent and accurate work, and the effective communication thereof. Be a finance thought leader to clients internally and externally, and help them see around corners as they build their businesses.
Your Typical, Atypical, Day
Working largely independently, apply knowledge, experience, insight, and competence to partner strategically with clients in various industries such as Fintech, Crypto/Blockchain/NFT, SaaS, Consumer, and Healthcare.
This role has variety at its core. From presenting at investor meetings to building financial models for clients, no day will be a “typical day” (hence the typical, atypical day).
You will help bridge the gap between legacy financial thinking and new blockchain-based ecosystems, functions and capital flows.
You will be supporting our startup clients who need high-level finance help but may not have a need for a full-time internal CFO at their current stage.
You will be working with a variety of clients, so the ability to context shift, communicate, prioritize and evaluate needs is the most important thing you’ll be doing in this role.
You will be managing the entire Finance function for your clients, so you’ll want to be comfortable managing a team.
You will have the opportunity to build out robust processes and systems for our clients. So understanding + embracing the agile and scrappy nature of startups is a must.

You lead with integrity in all that you say and do.
You take initiative and jump at the opportunity to explore new ways of doing things.
You take an acutely accurate approach to your work and look forward to the parts of your job that require analytical thinking and planning ahead.

You understand current financial, regulatory & tax landscape, and are passably familiar with the jurisdictional complexities of organizations in this space.
You have a love for all things high-level finance. For example, you should be able to work through the following:
You can lead client fundraising efforts – evaluating the size of a fundraising round, model cap table scenarios/dilution, assist with pitch deck preparation, facilitate investor introductions, and participate in investor pitches.
You can design the Finance function from the ground up. This includes building out team structures, implementing systems, and developing processes.
You can drive comprehensive reporting of financial performance, metrics, and KPIs.
You have strong finance-based modeling & analytical skills.
You can seamlessly juggle hard-hitting CFO deliverables while building strong client relationships.
