Your Team 
 
While they may be the smallest team here, they do make a large impact on us - they handle our money after all. As you may have guessed, this means planning, organizing, auditing, accounting for and controlling our finances. Yes, they’re smart people and love crunching numbers but they also enjoy the fresh outdoors.
 
Your Mission
 
You will oversee the business and financial operations and have an important role in the planning process. This means working closely with our CEO and CFO, playing a crucial part in understanding our data, developing frameworks, KPI’s and OKR’s for future growth, and aligning with the decision-makers across departments.
