About the role

Billions of people around the world are learning English to unlock economic opportunity for themselves and their families. Cambly gives those English learners on-demand access to native English speaking tutors to help them reach their full potential!

We are looking for a highly-driven, scrappy and analytical leader for our Finance team. You will report to the CFO and roll-up your sleeves to help build Cambly's FP&A function from the ground-up.

In this leadership role, you will run our FP&A activities - annual planning, budgeting/forecasting, reporting and variance analyses. You will also partner with leaders across Cambly to understand the ‘who, what, and whys’ of our business - working cross-functionally to dig into trends, evaluate new opportunities and drive profitable growth.

The successful candidate is someone who is a utility player - comfortable with ambiguity, operates with an ownership mindset and is adept at driving decisions across multiple constituents. We seek versatile thinkers who can structure and analyze a variety of business problems and consistently operate with a bias towards action.

Some challenges you'll tackle

  • Lead annual planning process, weekly/monthly business reviews and daily financial operations
  • Partner closely with cross-functional leads to define KPIs, deeply understand performance, uncover 'nuggets', and drive future decisions
  • Evaluate new growth opportunities - e.g., geographic expansion, product categories, marketing channels, etc
  • Conduct industry analysis and competitive research to influence mid- to long-term planning
  • Effective planning and analysis is only possible with good data - be a champion of data accessibility, and accuracy

You should have

  • B.A. or B.S. from an accredited four-year college or university
  • 10+ years of experience in FP&A or Corporate Finance
  • Advanced Excel modeling skills; proficiency with SQL and data visualization tools or a willingness to learn
  • Ability to work collaboratively with people at all levels of the organization, juggle multiple priorities, and drive towards action
  • Transparent management style with the ability to build relationships and trust quickly
  • Nimble mindset - our business is growing and evolving quickly, you’ll need to too
