Financial Analyst

Remote
Full Time
Experienced

We are looking for a Financial Analyst and data junkie to join our team. Ideal candidates are
analytical, inquisitive, and enjoy diving into financial data to identify key performance drivers and
fresh insights. We believe data is meaningless if it doesn’t tell a larger story. Candidates should be
skilled in presenting financial results clearly with high-impact visualizations and other presentation
tools. This is a client-facing role and candidates should be confident leading client discussions
independently, delivering and interpreting financial results, and providing fundraising
support. Candidates with early-stage startup experience in accounting, finance, or FP&A roles are
preferred, as are candidates with client-service experience and SaaS industry experience.
Graphite Financial is redefining the “finance department” for early-stage companies and VC-backed
startups. We deliver high-caliber accounting/finance leadership and support to entrepreneurs and
management teams building scalable, high-growth companies. Our clients are actively managing cash burn,
measuring performance, reporting to investors, making capital allocation decisions, and preparing for
fundraising. All of that takes expertise and time that founders don’t have and can’t afford to hire for.
Graphite closes the gap with flexible, fixed-fee support packages that provide fractional leadership and
operational support from CFOs, Controllers, FP&A Managers, and Accounting Managers.

This is a fully remote position however we do have coworking space available in Central FL, NY and NJ. The expected annual salary range is $75,000-$100,000.

  • Build financial dashboards that use visualization to communicate results and tell a “story”
  • Prepare and present comprehensive monthly financial reports to multiple clients, including all financial statements, trend reporting, budget vs. actual reporting, and key metrics
  • Develop assumptions-driven financial models that empower clients to forecast company performance, assess headcount and resource needs, manage runway, and plan for fundraising
  • Work closely with client teams to understand key performance drivers for their business
  • Prepare detailed reporting on unit economics and margin analysis
  • Prepare annual and quarterly budgets for multiple clients
  • Collaborate with accounting teams to understand underlying data
  • Perform ad-hoc analysis for clients on pricing strategy, margin sensitivity, cash burn scenarios, etc.
  • Ensure all forward-looking models and analysis is accessible and built with investors in mind

Who you are:

  • 7+ years’ experience in financial planning, analysis, and reporting
