Super smart person needed to build our financial process

at Koru Kids in London

(₤3000 per month)

We have paying customers and our processes need to be tightened up! We need someone to take a look at what we're currently doing, and build something better to make our business more efficient. We're not looking for a software developer, but rather someone who can use Excel/Google Sheets and third-party software to come up with a process for management reporting, payments and invoicing that makes sense.

We think this project will take about a month, and we'd like someone to start ASAP.

We're looking for someone
- Who loves to build things
- Who is a whizz at Excel and loves numerical puzzles
- Who is really clever and can cope with intellectual challenges and complexity
- Who is really practical and loves a beautiful product and an elegant process
- Who wants to work on an amazing and important mission - helping London's parents with their childcare
- Ideally, who has dealt with payments/payroll/reporting software before, built management reports, and/or been a strategy consultant, an accountant, worked in finance, or similar. However, don't let it stop you applying if you're not any of those things.

About Koru Kids
Koru Kids is on a mission to improve childcare in London. We’re making it easier and more affordable for families to access flexible and high quality childcare, by helping them share nannies with other families. This helps bring down the cost of childcare for the parents, means the nanny gets paid more, and gives the children a new friend to play with. Parents have responded enthusiastically, and our network of families is growing very fast.
We are backed by fantastic investors, including top venture capitalists and business angels such as Michael Pennington the founder of Gumtree. We’ve also caught the eye of the founder of Airbnb, who said of us, “Koru Kids is bringing the sharing economy to childcare in a totally new way.”

About the Team
We have an informal, hard-working and kind team culture. Our founder is Rachel Carrell, an alumna of Balliol College Oxford. Rachel is the former CEO of, the world’s largest online doctor service, which she grew to over 1.3m paying users in 3 countries. She’s also ex-McKinsey, a Rhodes Scholar and a WEF Young Global Leader. Rachel’s joined by Rebecca, who has great experience of marketing and operations, and Kitty, who takes care of customers. Our small team works from a co-working space near Euston Station in London (110 Hampstead Rd). The office is full of other startups and is very friendly and buzzy.

5 reasons this project is awesome
- You will learn a ton. We have a really development-focussed team culture
- You’ll be making a huge difference to the everyday lives of parents in London. We’re building a business that will profoundly benefit children, women, and families.

- We're really nice
- For the right person, we're willing to consider flexible working. (Please note though, that at least 50% of the time you will need to be in our office in Euston.)
