TL;DR: Fast-growing early-stage startup seeking VP Finance. In doing so, we’ll empower the most ambitious people in the world to build the future. Details below! (this is a fully remote role)
On Deck is where ambitious people grow, together
On Deck is where the world’s top talent comes to connect. Whatever it is our fellows want to do next, our ever-growing community and action-oriented programming will help them get there—fast. If our fellows want to learn something new to up-level their career, launch and scale big ideas, or make lifelong friends, this is the place.
We are looking for a VP Finance to build out our finance team and work with the rest of the leadership team.
This is an incredibly exciting opportunity – you’ll get an inside seat at a company in blitz-scale mode and make a significant impact through your work. You will work closely with our team and executives to help us build the foundations that will enable us to continue to blitz-scale (we grew from 6 to 60 FTE in 2020 and just hit 150) and we look forward to supporting the person we partner with in building out a world-class finance team. We currently have a budding accounting function, so for this hire we’re focusing on financial strategy – you’d be building the FP&A function, among others, from the ground up.
As such, we’re also looking to hire for this role ASAP. If you’re ready to move fast, so are we. Let’s chat.
Strong strategic synthesizer: You have deep experience in and ability to quickly synthesize complex financial metrics into a clear, actionable strategy. You’re not afraid to get into the weeds of a highly complex business and understand quickly which financial levers matter to us and outside investors.
Financial infrastructure builder, focused on execution: You have strong experience building financial infrastructure from the ground up in a distributed or international setting. You’re high urgency, a strong manager of execution. You’re also highly process / systems oriented and have a sufficiently strong commercial / operational background to drive innovation.
Great team builder and manager: Teams that report into you are inspired and excited to work for you. You can think critically about finance / org structure to support our next stage of blitz-scale. You’re also a strong culture promoter and have built high performing finance teams before.
Straightforward, compelling storyteller: You’re a clear, concise communicator and straight-shooter on all things finance and budget. You’re optimistic, positive and credible. You also have had extensive exposure to the venture capital industry, handling M&A activity and have a granular understanding of the fundraising process.
You’re set up for success at On Deck: You’ll be happy and accustomed to working for a complex business with dozens of products. You’re a champion of distributed work, promoting a remote-first environment spanning dozens of states and countries internationally.
If you were to join On Deck, we’d want you to really love it. We also know that it can be hard to tell from the outside looking in whether that would be the case for you. So, we challenged ourselves to come up with an honest set of reasons someone wouldn’t want to join our company. We hope it helps you make an informed decision about whether On Deck is a place you’d love to work.
