If so read on...
As our first hire into our finance team you will be responsible for identifying where support is needed and ultimately building that team. There is potential for our future Finance Director to progress into a CFO role.
You'll be responsible for ensuring that the company meets its financial and legal obligations, through the development of new and already existing systems, policies and procedures to ensure the most effective and efficient financial management within Glorify.
In addition, a significant part of this role will require on-going cohort analysis, including pricing and subscription analysis to inform our decision-making process in the monetisation of our product at a strategic level.
As a fast growing startup we expect to continue fundraising campaigns for future growth. As Finance Director you will play a significant part in securing that investment, primarily by ensuring that we are in position to achieve our financial targets, but also through the provision of accurate financial information for investors.
The majority of our revenue comes through Google Play and the App Store. However, as our user base grows within new territories we will set-up local teams across multi-geographical sites, where payments and expenses will need to be managed in local currencies.
First and foremost your finance management experience will come from B2C mobile apps, where significant revenue comes from Google play and the App store. It’s important that you understand the intricacies of the mobile app ecosystem and a subscription based revenue model.
You will have been involved in setting up financial processes from scratch and overseeing them within a startup or scale up environment. Your experience will span the full spectrum of finance departmental responsibilities.
You’ll have expertise in budget preparation, profit and loss, balance sheets, forecasts and cash flow analysis. To that extent you’ll have excellent skills within Excel and Xero (or similar) picked up through daily use.
Key to this position will be the on-going management of the budgets and plans that you produce. We’ll want to understand how you have ensured that the previous plans you have created were adhered to or the challenges you faced.
You’ll be up to date with latest financial and statutory regulations and will have been responsible for ensuring compliance within your last role.
Finally, you’ll have experience analysing financial data to influence pricing strategies and/or subscription pricing will be essential. We’ll want to hear about how you have analysed financial data and what insight it provided.
Why work for us?
Glorify is set for significant growth over the next few years. You’ll have an opportunity to play a huge part in our journey to success.
If you haven’t already, you will likely have the chance to work on future fundraising campaigns.
You’ll own the department and be our subject matter expert for financial operations on a global scale.
