Interviews and onboarding are conducted virtually, a part of being a distributed-first company.

  • Deep technical know-how in building financial models, balancing complexity with simplicity
  • Engage with Product and Platform teams to create unit metrics on the cost to serve and product costing to aid in product profitability analysis
  • Provide data-driven insights that help build efficient capital allocation across the company and strategic decision-making
