Director of Finance - Exciting Cannabis Startup
Job description

We are partnering with a hugely exciting, fast growing startup in the Cannabis industry that is looking for a superstar Director of Finance/Controller to lead the continued build-out of a scalable accounting function. Led by a passionate and visionary CEO and an energetic exec team, this startup has established itself as a leader within its niche and fostered a culture of ownership and reward for people who take initiative.

As the Director of Finance, you will build on the foundations of the current accounting function with a long term view in mind. You'll need to be at home operating in the gray and comfortable quickly becoming a subject matter expert in an industry that is still defining its accounting regulations.

Your mission

  • Lead the company's financial reporting month-end and consolidation processes and oversee all revenue recognition activities
  • Partner with the exec team to develop budgets and analyze operating results for variances, communicating to stakeholders with commentary and insights for potential improvements
  • Collaborate with the operations team to develop a robust inventory management system
  • Support the analysis of capital investments and pricing decisions and develop a system to manage overall capital budget and individual projects
  • Provide consistent feedback and suggestions to stakeholders and exec leadership on improvements to processes, systems, and business operations

What you'll bring

  • The desire to tackle an exciting challenge in an industry with huge amounts of growth ahead of it
  • Ideally, a combination of public accounting and private experience, including demonstrated success in high growth and fast changing environments
  • CPA strongly preferred
  • Experience leading month end and financial reporting processes as well as providing support to business partners
  • Knowledge of inventory-based business models would be a big advantage
  • Excellent systems and Excel skills and the ability to streamline and automate accounting processes
  • Experience leading small teams would be a bonus
