Head of Finance

People analytics questions

Just Wowsers

This is probably the most exciting time to join a SaaS company in the HR Tech industry as the head of Finance. We've developed enterprise technology that won many prizes and that is used by large companies around the world. We are financially healthy, have a diverse team of top potentials, and we have big plans for the future.

Crunchr is growing fast. We even doubled our revenues during the pandemic. We use tons of SaaS metrics (unit economics) to measure if we're on track and to make data-driven decisions. For example: how can we grow faster whilst keeping healthy runway, how can we invest more in product and technology, what is the ROI on marketing events, what should our capital strategy be for the next three years, etc.

With the business growth and our big plans, the management team is expanding. And now, we're looking for the right executive with the vision to drive Crunchr's financial strategy, action and implementation.


What do we do?

We believe that people are truly a company's biggest asset (that they don't own). It's people (not robots) that invent new products, send people to the moon and deliver fantastic customer experiences.

At the same time, we see that companies still know very little about their employees. For example, how do they feel, what do they want. Do companies offer the same career opportunities to everyone? What is the impact of automation on the skills that companies need to develop? etc.

We created an intuitive workforce analytics platform that translates the data that companies already have into clear insights for HR and managers to improve workforce productivity and employee experience.


Role summary

Crunchr is ready for a smart strategist with financial and managerial experience. The Head of Finance will be responsible for leading the development and scaling of the finance and business insights functions.

The ideal candidate will be a great communicator, problem solver and team player, who is able to effectively manage time, prioritize multiple projects and be a significant contributor to the management team.

This position reports to the Chief Executive Officer of Crunchr, is part of the management team and will participate in board meetings with the investors.
