About the Role
Pinecone is seeking a Director to build out our FP&A function. You will lead the way in establishing processes for advanced analytics and financial planning, which will be absolutely vital as the company accommodates to its scale. You will partner with the leadership team to create the fiscal plans and provide financial counsel and support, including developing north star operational metrics for each department, financial projections to forecast where the business is headed, variance analyses, cash flow projections, and other analyses. You will report directly to the VP of Finance and Ops.
In this role, you will:
Work with the leadership team to develop the annual budget, advise on resource allocation, own quarterly forecast revisions and variance analyses, and proactively communicate results.
Design and implement dashboards that report and benchmark key operational metrics in recurring reporting packages.
Leverage your knowledge of the business to report on key drivers of Pinecone’s financial results during the monthly close.
Build a culture around data-driven decision making, including proactively identifying business trends, incorporating them into our projections, and instilling the value of accurate spend management with your cross-functional partners.
We’re looking for someone with:
Bachelor's degree in Finance, Accounting, Economics, or a related field
8+ years of progressive experience in financial planning and analysis, ideally in the technology sector. This can include time spent in adjacent fields (data science, banking, etc.)
Strong proficiency in financial modeling and analysis, including expertise with Excel, SQL, and BI tools.
Exemplary interpersonal skills as demonstrated by the ability to clearly articulate financial data to non-financial colleagues and stakeholders and work across departments and functions.
Experience working with modern software and systems, particularly NetSuite.
You’ll be a good fit if you:
Enjoy a fast-growth environment and taking on responsibility.
Are a self-starter that shines when tasked with navigating ambiguous situations.
Have a proven track record of driving cross-functional partnership.
Are excited by the prospect of eventually growing and leading a team of your own.
Care as much as we do about building a vibrant and healthy company.
