Finance Manager

Purpose
Help build the analytical engine for a fast growing startup while defining the processes for P&L management, strategic planning, budgeting, invoicing, and cash-flow modeling.

Driven to own projects from inception through completion, you are an inquisitive and proactive self-starter with a knack for seeing problems before they occur. You're known for designing efficient processes and telling complex stories with numbers.
