Revivn is a bootstrapped, profitable and rapidly growing company that helps enterprises manage their old technology through our end of life software platform. We take electronic recycling one step further by repurposing hardware that still has remaining life and providing it to people who lack dedicated computer access. Working with companies like Gensler, Thumbtack, and Teach for America we are changing the way companies view old technology with a new model that focuses on repurposing instead of recycling.
About the Role: We’re looking for a resourceful, growth and culture-minded leader with a proven track record of success at the individual and team level to become our first Director of Strategic Finance. As the Director of Finance, you will run a small team that's plugged into every facet of the business and has a wide strategic and operational mandate. You will function as a player/coach who builds and iterates our forecasting and annual planning from the top down, as well as have a heavy hand in charting the trajectory of the business. You will have a large role in strategically operating the company and “keeping the trains on the track”. This role will report into our VP of Operations on the executive team, and be a member of the growing senior leadership team. This is a hybrid role (4 days a week in office) located in our Brooklyn Navy Yard Headquarters.
About You: You are a hungry, analytical, and operationally minded-thinker. You are excited to use your financial acumen and data driven decision making to support the growth of the business in a scalable but agile way. You are comfortable operating in ambiguity and are solutions-oriented. You enjoy cross collaboration and excel at building trust with a variety of stakeholders. You are strategic and curious in your approach, and you enjoy both leading a small team and heavy hands-on work (equally comfortable at 10,000 feet or in the thick of the weeds). You are comfortable with external negotiation. While you have a specific background in finance, you are probably often referred to as a Jack or Jill of all trades.
