Summary of the Role
Reporting to the Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer, this is an opportunity for the Chief Financial Officer to truly influence the strategic direction of the company. You will play a pivotal role in the organization’s growth and financial prosperity.
The organization’s finance and accounting functions are currently being outsourced to an external partner, one of your early priorities will be to develop an in-house finance and accounting function. Similarly, as you get more entrenched in the day-to-day financial operations at Quantropi, you will lead the development of the next iteration of the company’s business, financial and pricing models, in collaboration with the CEO and executive leadership team.
This role goes well beyond managing Quantropi’s finances; the CEO sees the CFO as a key voice at the table, not only bringing with them their experience from past successes but also planning their next strategic moves as an organization. To this point, you will play a vital role in managing the due diligence, financial planning, prospecting and presentation required to attract investors as the organization raises funds beyond the seed funding received to date.
As you enable sophistication and growth within their corporate finance structure, you will become a key advisor, seeking investment and innovation strategies that ensure the long-term prosperity for all internal and external stakeholders.
