Exclusive role - Financial Controller - Tech Start-up - Warwick - £60-65k + £10k bonus + Shares + flexible working

A number 1 Finance position with a Tech start-up in the Artificial Intelligence (AI) space looking to bring onboard their first Finance hire.

This awesome business is on their way to being a leader in the Intelligent Software space, with an impressive and experienced leadership team creating disruptive innovation, and in only a couple years already have a client base across Europe, Asia and the US working with some of the biggest brands in the industry!

Due to rapid growth and a £10m Series-A funding round backed by a high-profile VC this unique opportunity has presented itself as they bring onboard their first Finance Manager, reporting into the CEO, providing financial guidance to the business and working closely with the founding team.

The business is led by a passionate, caring and incredibly bright CEO / Founder who leads by example, isn't afraid to get hands-on and support his team, and is keen to share his knowledge and support the development of his leadership team. You will join as the head of Finance, helping to build out a solid Finance function and eventually build a team as the business grows.

The financial reporting is outsourced - but you will own everything that adds value including the Management Reporting, FP&A and Cashflow, business partnering senior management and the commercial teams to understand their numbers and the key business drivers, and driving profitability and savings across the organisation as they look to 3X their revenue in the next 2 years, and grow headcount from 60 to 100 by the end of 2021.

If you are intellectually curious and fascinated by the way Technology and Science are changing our lives for the better - and are looking for a role on the Senior Leadership Team in a rapidly growing disruptive start-up business you can grow with for years to come - then this could be the role for you.

What you will need to show to be successful in this role:

  • A bright, qualified Finance professional who is passionate about Tech or start-ups
  • An adaptable personality, able to work in a hands-on, dynamic start-up environment
  • Strong analytical skills, able to use numbers to tell the story to senior non-finance stakeholders including the CEO and the VC/Investors
  • Experience in the Tech / Software space or a similar fast-paced industry desirable

Package:

  • £60-65,000
  • £10k bonus
  • Company shares (EMI)
  • Flexible working
