Head of Finance and Control (Remote, North America)

Who are we

LimaCharlie is a rapidly growing venture-backed information security startup delivering information security tools and infrastructure in a manner similar to how AWS delivers core components of IT.

LimaCharlie enables organizations to detect & respond to threats, automate processes, reduce the number of vendors, and future-proof their security operations. We do it by giving security teams full control over how they manage their security infrastructure. Get started in seconds without having to talk to a salesperson, gain full visibility into your coverage, build what you want, control your data, get the security capabilities you need, for however long you need them, and pay only for what you use.

The role we are trying to fill

The Head of Finance will develop and lead all finance efforts for the Company, and eventually build out the accounting and finance team. This individual will report and work closely with the COO to provide tactical and strategic support in all aspects of our finances. This role will be ever changing and will require the candidate to be flexible, paying close attention to detail and processes. Candidates must be experienced in all aspects of US accounting and tax preparations and possess extensive knowledge of generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP).

Responsibilities

  • Assist in formulating the company’s future direction through providing input on the company’s business plan, financial and tax strategies, budgeting, and forecasting

  • Work with the CRO to manage revenue and sales commissions etc.

  • Work with the COO to understand and mitigate key elements of the company’s risk profile - including appropriate insurance coverage

  • Lead financial planning, creating and maintaining budgeting tools and assist senior executives in budgeting and reporting

  • Develop and maintain necessary accounting policies and systems and building an accounting department as the company grows

  • Coordinating, preparing and reviewing monthly, quarterly, and annual reports

  • Develop performance measures that support the company’s strategic direction

  • Manage outside vendors and any third parties to which accounting or finance functions have been outsourced

    • QuickBooks Online (QBO)

    • Fathom

    • YouNeedABudget (YNAB)

    • Stripe

  • Pay bills, sends invoices, reimburse employee expenses

  • Coordinate corporate tax reporting, compliance, and preparation of tax returns with outside tax accountants

  • Represent the company externally, as necessary, particularly in banking and lease negotiations

  • A big “catch all” category, shared with the COO, depending on who else is on the team: some analytics (tracking KPIs and OKRs), some legal (contract review), some operations (vendor management, lease management etc.)

What we offer

  • Competitive compensation, benefits and meaningful ownership (equity) in the company

  • Fully remote work environment with a few in-person events a year so that you can build genuine relationships with people you work with in this online world

  • Professional development budget, weekly meal allowance, Internet allowance, co-working space allowance and home-office stipend to make sure you can use the tools you like
