Remind, the leading communication platform in education, helps educators reach students and parents where they are: their phones.

About this role

We are looking for a Financial Analyst to provide analytical insights that support the growth and shape the strategy of Remind.

Furthermore, you will analyze ROI of company initiatives, drive improvements to critical business operations and processes, and support investor-related activities including cap table management and fundraising. As Remind continues to deepen our impact in US education, this is a great opportunity to gain operational and strategic finance insight into supporting a high-growth enterprise SaaS business as well as scaling a direct-to-consumer business.

  • You have strong problem solving ability and experience working through ambiguous or messy datasets (or can suggest logical datasets to be created)

What you'll do:

  • Own and maintain all financial modeling for the company to enable: 
    • Managing, forecasting and monitoring business operations
    • Analyzing specific company initiatives, and potential returns on investment
    • Projecting and analyzing scenarios for the Board and other investors
    • Understanding compensation/capitalization
    • Other ad-hoc initiatives in support of long-term value creation
  • Partner with business leaders in their strategic decision-making by providing key performance indicators and analysis
  • Be a key partner to the accounting team, including:
    • Supporting monthly/quarterly/annual close and tracking budget vs. actuals 
    • Monitoring, ensuring and improving accuracy of our systems and processes
  • Interact with all areas of the company to build strong cross-functional collaboration with finance and accounting
  • Provide input into process improvement to scale forecasting and reporting tools, procedures, and methodologies
  • Prepare and own financial presentations, including investor and Board decks

On your first day, you should:

  • Have the intellectual curiosity to understand and analyze any area of the business
  • Be able to drive further understanding of any business question via a financial model or analysis in Excel

Compensation:

  • Competitive salary and equity
  • 401K
  • 100% health coverage for you and your dependents
  • Open vacation policy
