Our client (confidential) is North America’s largest seller of their specific product. Founded by two entrepreneurs in 2015, these two joined forces to launch their passion for bringing their radical product to the masses. With sales in North America and the EU they have doubled revenue in each year of existence and are experiencing hyper-growth. They are a highly mission-driven company aiming to build products used for everything and priced for everyone and they work every day to realize their vision. Embracing environmental responsibility and a diverse community inclusive of experiences, backgrounds and skills, they are actively working towards expanding their brand globally.
The Controller is a new position at the company that will oversee Accounting, Accounting Systems and Tax. Created out of necessity due to their growth and spun off of the responsibilities of their current Director of Finance, this will be a fast-paced, hands-on role. The Controller will focus on automating many solid existing processes and procedures and concentrate on scaling and building additional accounting operations and systems infrastructure to support the company’s growth.
Technical responsibilities include management and continued improvement of the accounting closing and financial reporting processes, coordination and consolidation of international subsidiary operations, overseeing tax planning and reporting, and contributing to the utilization of the company’s numerous financial systems. Strategically, this role will navigate the inherent complications that come with scaling a hyper-growth mode business internationally and through channel complexity. Many of the tactical challenges exist in the need to balance improving accuracy of financial data while building scalable structure (control, reporting, tax, systems) to allow them to grow unimpeded.
The leadership team is seeking someone with an uncompromising attention to detail who fully embraces the company’s mission and vision. They will join a very high capacity group of supportive people with low egos in a highly accountable environment. Output and results matter as much as building genuine cross-functional relationships across the company.
