Director of Finance and Operations
Mountain View, CA

CommerceIQ is a SaaS platform, funded by top-tier VCs, automating the way consumer brands grow e-commerce revenue. Our vision is to create the world's most intelligent and automated commerce platform. We remove the tedious processes and manual work involved in gaining sales and plugging revenue leaks, handle trade spend, and grow sales - in short, our brands win on Amazon. We automate e-commerce growth more than 500 major brands including many of Amazon’s most successful 1P seller such as Kimberly-Clark, Kelloggs, Logitech, Nestle, Kraft, and more.

Fueled by strong growth and recent capital injection, we’re looking for a Director of Finance and Operations to join our Senior Leadership team and as we work towards the next level. Based out of our Mountain View office, you’ll be responsible for leading all of our Finance, Planning, and Accounting functions during a time of rapid growth and expansion. This role will have you hands-on, directly reporting to our CEO, taking a data-driven approach to all things Finance.

As the Director of Finance and Operations at CommerceIQ, you will:

  • Establish a metrics-driven organization, and maintain ownership of strategy, planning, reporting, and execution for Finance, Accounting, and Operations
  • Be responsible for all aspects of FP&A, including AR/AP/Payroll - both hands-on and in collaboration with consultants and vendors
  • Lead the planning and forecasting processes in partnership with our Leadership team, and own all related board communications
  • Partner with our CEO and SLT to develop the long-term operating model and drive the strategic steps to get there
  • Partner with the Management to develop a deep understanding of our business and identify opportunities to create additional value
  • Own and develop compensation plans across the business, including leveling, equity, sales comp and commission structure, and maintaining industry benchmarks
  • Be responsible for end-to-end company operations, including co-ownership of HR
  • Be hands-on for strategy and execution, then grow a team of F&A professionals when the time is right

And our ideal Director of Finance will have:

  • 5+ years of FP&A management experience, preferably in an Enterprise SaaS business (or a similar B2B technology company)
  • A desire to lead from the front - you’ll own strategy and planning, but remain hands on until we need to grow the team
  • Ability to lead and influence decisions across all areas of the business
  • A data-driven approach to decision making, with advanced analytic, modeling, and forecasting skills
  • Start-up readiness - you have worked in a Series A/B/C stage startup (or similar environment), or have been key in elevating FP&A to the next level in a VC-funded startup
  • Degree in Business, Accounting, Finance, or similar
  • Bonus points: Experience with Treasury, Corporate Development, M&A, VC-funded startups, an advanced degree, MBA, or CPA qualifications would be highly regarded

We have built a pure SaaS play with a laser-focus on consumer brands as our first, and only, customers. Through data, analytics, and automation we ensure our e-commerce brands win on Amazon - and we do it at scale. Our seller focused tools are simply a better way to interact with Amazon. We have an A+ team, operating in an A+ market with big customers - the magic formula that will allow us to grow into a very large company.
