We’re a fast-growing multi-million dollar CPG startup looking to bring on a rockstar CFO. This is a unique opportunity to bring your expertise in accounting, finance, and HR directly to the founders who work from various locations around the world.

This is a dream role designed specifically for a high-achieving, tech-savvy back-office veteran who believes there is more to life than getting a job at a mega-corporation and counting the days until retirement (or layoffs…) You will be in the privileged position to learn from one of the fastest-growing e-commerce companies in the world and find out what makes us successful and help fuel our growth!

We Hire the Best, Regardless of Their Location.

We run our business from all over the world, and we believe flexibility in where you work leads to better performance and happiness. Performance and attitude is the most important aspect of this job, not clocking hours in the office or water cooler politics.
Want to set up shop at a coworking space in Lisbon, or put the finishing touches on a deck while sipping coffee at a sidewalk café Buenos Aires? Fine with us. As long as you can work on a US timezone, we’re cool with it.
Unlike other jobs, we don’t believe that what you do should dictate where you live.
We’re looking for people who can demonstrate they hold themselves to a higher standard in everything they do, because with great flexibility comes great responsibility.
All this flexibility doesn’t mean we’re not a close-knit team…you’ll have daily meetings and quarterly retreats to make sure we’re growing stronger as a team.
Who This is Not For:
  • Someone who thinks that learning is over when school is over.
  • Someone who is only motivated by a boss telling him or her to work harder.
  • Someone who doesn’t believe that how you feel on the inside directly correlates with how you perform in life and business.
Duties Include:
  • Prepare all monthly closing entries and reconciliations including sales, COGS, inventory, credit cards, etc.
  • Process A/P and A/R
  • Process bi-weekly payroll
  • Cash flow and Budget Projections
  • Identify creative financing options
  • Provide key metrics for investor deck and internal reports
  • Providing guidance for accounting policy and procedure
  • Prepare weekly management reports and monthly financial statements
  • Maintain insurance coverage
  • Human Resource management for small office staff working in various locations
  • Corporate compliance
  • Maintain W9 & FBEN forms and file Annual Form 1099/1099
Ideal candidate will:
  • Be a leader and lend their voice for a young and growing company.
  • Work independently: You will need to be your own problem solver and self manage tasks
  • Possess solid experience with software and systems: Quickbooks Online, Shopify, PayPal, Stripe, Amazon Merchant, Google, Asana,, ADP and 3PL.
  • Utilize clear written and verbal communication: Work with 3rd party vendors, tax accountants, lawyers, bank, broker, etc and provide relevant information to the team
