Clubhouse is a new type of social product based on voice. It allows people everywhere to talk, tell stories, develop ideas, deepen friendships, and meet interesting new people around the world.
Our early users love the product and we have been featured in publications like The New York Times, Forbes, The Telegraph, TechCrunch, CNBC, and WIRED. Today, we are a small and productive team with a strong background in consumer products. We are well funded, with recent backing from top-tier VCs and many of the best angel investors from Silicon Valley and beyond.
As we open up Clubhouse to the whole world, we are seeking to add a few extraordinary people to our growing team. If you think you would be a good fit, please let us know! 🙏
Clubhouse is looking for its first Strategic Finance hire! As a founding member of the Finance team, you’ll have the opportunity to partner across the organization to ensure we are optimally allocating resources, efficiently building for rapid growth, and influencing better decision making through thoughtful and timely analysis.
This role will report to our Head of Finance. During the pandemic, we are working remotely. This role will be open to both local and US-based, remote candidates. We will have an office in San Francisco when we are able to safely reopen our office for those who prefer to work in person.
Who you are
You are experienced. You have 6+ years of experience in Strategic Finance, FP&A, investment banking or a similar environment. You have previously worked at a high growth startup and know what “best in class” Finance looks like at scale. From financial modeling to capital allocation to strategic analysis — you are skilled and experienced across a variety of finance disciplines.
You have a track record of influencing company strategy. You proactively perform strategic analysis and make recommendations that shape the future of the business. You are a trusted thought leader with your business partners. You take a first principles approach to solving challenges to arrive at the best outcomes for our business.
You are a world class financial modeler. You are an excel wizard that knows keyboard shortcuts like the back of your hand. You quickly build scalable, organized and clear financial models. You enjoy building from the ground up and are not intimidated by starting from a “blank” spreadsheet. You constantly look for ways to make your models more efficient and accurate.
You make sense out of chaos. You are an expert at synthesizing large volumes of data and complex analysis into concise and actionable takeaways. You actively tailor your messaging to resonate with your target audience. You are energized by the statement “less is more.”
You bias towards action. You favor practical choices, speed and a respect for sequencing. You focus on the things that matter and push back on things that don’t. You make deadlines for yourself and you move fast.
You’re scrappy and entrepreneurial. You thrive in fast-paced environments and are comfortable with not knowing the answer to something. You are willing to roll up your sleeves no matter what the challenge is.
You take pride in what you do. You care deeply about your work. If something seems off, you come up with a good solution and fix it without being asked to do so. You’re proactive with suggestions and people know they can count on you to get things done.
You enjoy your work. You love what you do, think about it in your free time, and often find yourself building at strange hours — not because you feel you have to, but because you’re so excited to create something big for the world. Your favorite thing to do is to take on a huge challenge and pull it off.
You care about doing the right thing. You value diversity and go out of your way to ensure others feel welcome. You enjoy hanging out with your teammates, have a low-ego, and make the workplace more fun for everyone.
What you will do
You’ll own our financial model. You’ll build and manage our first financial operating model from the ground up. The model will serve as a compass that we’ll leverage to inform major financial decisions like resource planning and our financing strategy. You’ll actively look for ways to make the model more efficient and accurate.
You’ll facilitate our planning process. You’ll develop and facilitate our planning process while ensuring that our strategy aligns with our investment allocation. You’ll actively monitor performance against our plan and proactively highlight risks and opportunities.
You’ll define and measure ROI. You’ll partner across the business to define and measure ROI in key investment areas such as marketing and infrastructure. You’ll develop frameworks that empower business partners to move faster while being fiscally responsible.
You’ll influence company strategy. You firmly believe that Finance is a strategic function and will proactively perform analysis and make recommendations that shape the future of the business. From enabling creator monetization to financing strategy to vendor negotiations — you seamlessly transition across operational and strategic workstreams.
You’ll implement scalable systems and processes. You’ll partner with Accounting to build our financial foundation that will allow the business to effectively scale while enabling timely and accurate financials. You’ll carefully launch processes, systems and policies that increase predictability and control while not slowing the business down.
You’ll grow and improve rapidly. At Clubhouse you’ll be working with an incredible team, who love to learn from and teach each other. You’ll find yourself stretching to new areas, immersed in feedback, challenged by your teammates, and growing your skills on a daily basis.
You’ll be an owner. We believe in hiring people and giving them as much responsibility as they can handle. As a founding member of the Finance team you’ll be trusted to own our financial model, facilitate our planning process and perform strategic analysis that shapes the future of the business.
You’ll create something meaningful. Social products allow people to connect in ways that were never before possible. When the telephone was invented, it suddenly allowed people to speak with others across the world. Thanks to FaceTime, grandparents everywhere can now watch their grandchildren grow up. At Clubhouse, you’ll be figuring out something entirely new for the world—a positive product that brings people’s voices together for deep and meaningful conversations, creates new relationships, builds empathy across cultures, entertains people, and helps people develop ideas that change the course of their lives.
As an early team member at Clubhouse you will be a critical voice and have significant influence over the direction of the company. We will compensate you well, invest deeply in your development, and ensure this is the single best work experience of your life. If you think you might be a good fit for our team, we’d love to hear from you!
