CFO/CCO (Full-time or Fractional)

Are you looking for a career where you’ll make an incredible impact? 

Do you want to join an organization at the brink of massive commercialization? 

Are you looking for a role where you can be a finance leader and also act as a trusted business and operations advisor to the executive team?
 

About The Company

 

We're working with a well-funded software company with experienced leadership and just under 50 employees. They've spent the last five years developing their intellectual property (wireless technology) and refining their product-market fit. Their technology is opening up a new market, and they're on a mission to transform the way the world interacts with and uses wireless signals.

How Will I Make An Impact?

 

This company is on the cusp of immense growth and as a result, we’re looking for a CFO/Chief Commercialization Officer to partner with the CEO to evaluate the strategy and execute on the vision. 

 

You will be fundamental to the company’s success. You will be a key advisor to evaluate customer/partner opportunities, monetize the business, manage the P&L, lead fundraising efforts, and determine the best strategic path forward. 

 

How Do I Know If This Is For Me?

 

  • You are a strategic business advisor and operational finance leader excited about the potential to scale a technology company globally. 

 

  • You are experienced in working closely with enterprise customers to position a company, align on the commercialization strategy, and handle contract negotiation and deal structuring. 

 

  • You have managed up to a board and/or investors, delivering the pitch story and aligning on the strategy. 

 

  • You have successfully led and secured VC funding. 

 

  • You are passionate about determining the best way forward for the company to maximize future earnings and shareholder value, and executing on the plan to get there. 

 

  • You are looking for an opportunity where you can wear many hats beyond a traditional CFO (i.e., Chief Commercialization Officer, etc.) in a lean organization where every leader is both strategic and tactical. 

 

  • You bring an inclusive, mentorship-focused management style and your insights are often sought out as a trusted guide and coach in your field. 
     

Do I Have What It Takes (Requirements)?

 

  • CPA designation and a university degree in a relevant field 

  • An understanding of what it takes to effectively lead in a fast-paced, start-up environment

  • Proven leadership experience in a technology company with a software or hardware focus

  • Experience leading Finance/Operations with a high growth scaling company (VP/CFO)

  • Experience in managing the P&L for a company and building financial models to execute and optimize the corporate vision 

  • Well versed in contract negotiations with enterprise customers (ideally with OEMs and ISPs)

  • Experience successfully navigating the M&A process

  • Mentorship leadership style - you know how to inspire a collaborative culture and achieve exceptional results
