Current openings:

    Head of Finance (Full-time)

      Our Head of Finance will be a key member of our growing team. You will report directly to the Founders and have a broad scope including all matters related to finance, business strategy and operations. If you are excited by the “nuts and bolts”, a data junkie and love using data to help drive business, we should talk.

      We’re a lean team so you will need to be hands-on. Candidates must have at least 7 years of experience, including working in financial and/or operations roles for apparel or consumer products companies. Undergraduate degree is a requirement, MBA and/or CPA is a plus.

      The ideal candidate is...

        • Experienced – s/he will be able to take on key financial functions quickly and effectively, working from a foundational understanding of consumer products (ideally apparel). While time spent in management consulting, investment banking or private equity is great - we love “athletes” - financial operating experience is key, with preference to those who have worked in both wholesale and ecommerce
        • Comfortable in unstructured, multitasked environments – Willing and able to run with little direction, structure the role him/herself, and set and manage priorities effectively.
        • Entrepreneurial and driven – Constantly coming up with actionable analyses so that we can look at our business thoroughly and in new ways
        • Able to execute the whole stack – Expect to build, manage and execute our entire finance function, from managing working capital and payroll to working with investors
        • A true team player – We have built a family here, and we expect this role to be part of that family.

        Specific responsibilities will include:

        • Report to and work closely with Harald and Lynn on all matters related to finance, strategy and operations
        • Financial projections and business modeling
        • Preparation of budgets
        • Management of accounting, monthly close and external bookkeeper
        • Oversee payroll, AP/AR, expenses
        • Inventory management, planning and forecasting; creation of management dashboards
        • Tracking and optimization of key financial metrics e.g., revenue, return rates, discounts, partnership economics
        • Financial presentations for our board and outside investors
        • Mastery of Excel; fluency with accounting software (e.g., Quickbooks) is a plus, as is knowledge of related ERP solutions, SQL, etc.

        The position will be based in our Flatiron (New York, NY) office. Compensation is commensurate with experience.
