Job Description:

Your Impact:

The VP of Finance & Accounting will be responsible for oversight of all accounting, tax, cash, finance and reporting activities and processes. The ideal candidate is an innovative, dynamic thinker with experience developing and implementing financial

processes in a growing company. The VP of Finance & Accounting will bring a process improvement focus to the accounting and financial reporting function by partnering with key stakeholders across the Company to enhance and better integrate financial controls and policies as the Company scales. The VP of Finance & Accounting will report to the CFO and work closely with the senior leadership team on a variety of initiatives aimed at improving the systems, reporting, and overall financial health of the company. As Company continues to scale there will be significant opportunity to build out the finance and accounting functions for a larger and potential public company, and for career progression.

Responsibilities include: Design and implement increasingly rigorous and disciplined financial processes to drive business clarity and ensure full visibility to business opportunities and risks. Further develop the Company’s Financial Planning & Analysis function including financial modeling, financial systems, controls and processes, budgeting and forecasting, and cash management. Identify business growth opportunities and provide critical information and analysis for highly informed, analytically-driven decision-making. Proactively identify opportunities to drive value on both the income and expenses by developing a strong understanding of the operating business. Develop strong and trusted relationships across the key operating leaders of the business in order to collaborate on evaluating business operational investment decisions and to ensure accountability. Specific functional expectations: Corporate Reporting: Direct all day-to- day technical and financial accounting activities and functions of the company, including timely, accurate, and consistent monthly financial reporting, consolidation and closing processes, including reconciliation of various financial statement accounts. Improve and convey monthly management reporting package emphasizing KPI’s and reconciled back to GAAP financials. Assess and optimize accounting processes to increase the efficiency while establishing an effective internal control structure, with self-audit procedures that will ensure the consistent application of accounting policies. External Reporting: Lead the company’s external reporting in accordance with GAAP, and to meet the needs of outside shareholders, lenders, and regulators. These requirements will evolve over the next several years as the company explores new ownership options. Systems Implementation: Partner with technology team to ensure successful implementation and maintenance of NetSuite. Help with the selection and implementation processes for additional systems. Internal Control: Assess the effectiveness of the company’s processes and internal control structure and develop and implement recommendations that improve the effectiveness, efficiency and economic value of a control or process. Initial focus should be on the revenue recognition process (from transaction through balance sheet reconciliation). Controls should, to the extent possible, minimally impact the nimble execution of business and ideally add operational value. Cash Management: Supervise cash management activities, with a focus on continuous improvement in capital efficiency. Develop and maintain short-term tactical cash forecast. Tax Management: Manage and comply with local, state and federal government reporting requirements and tax filings, working with external tax advisor. Development of the Finance and Accounting Organization: Manage and nurture a high performing team and create opportunities for professional growth for your team members. Develop relationships across the organization. The successful candidate will need to understand the needs of each function and reinforce a client service orientation for the finance organization. The challenge will be to help install processes and controls without negatively impacting a strong entrepreneurial culture. What we value: Partnership: Accounting and finance are service functions that partner with operational departments across the firm. We are responsible for accurate reporting and compliance, which often requires implementing processes and disciplines that could be burdensome to our operating partners and/or to the accounting team. An effective accounting and finance team works to understand the goals and constraints of our partners and then implement process changes that enhance or at least minimally disrupt our partners. We work to be part of their team and help them understand the financial implications of their decisions. Ownership: We own the numbers and are responsible for their accuracy and the insights generated from them. Each member of the accounting and finance team has a personal standard of accuracy and for ‘doing it right’ that exceeds any audit or external compliance standard. Mistakes happen and when they do, we fix them and implement checks and measures to ensure they don’t happen again. “Doers”: We are a team of “doers” and we expect leaders to both provide direction as well as help get the work done. Team: Company has a strong team of smart, high integrity, fun individuals who work hard. We help each other with the big and the small stuff equally. We know we will either win as a team or lose as individuals. Fun: We've never take ourselves too seriously, and it helps keep us humble and on our toes. We work too hard to not have fun and enjoy what we do and who we spend our working hours with. Who we're sniffin' for:
