The Company

We are an entrepreneurial team with big ambitions. We provide independent corporate finance and CFO services for US based companies with revenues between $1-100 million. Most of our clients have extensive international operations and we are actively engaged in strategically scaling them across 5 continents. We are looking for the right individual to assist us in scaling our organization and to grow the delivery of our services and products. This is a fantastic opportunity to join us at an early stage and help grow and develop our organization to a high level.

The Role

You will be in an exciting entrepreneurial position to both scale Vanreusel Ventures (internal) as well as being part of our external corporate finance/CFO delivery team (external). 

This is a fast-paced, high-energy, deadline-driven position in an entrepreneurial environment. Although we are based in San Francisco the job can be done 100% remotely if needed. Especially for the right person.

Our team has a hybrid work environment engaging from our office in downtown San Francisco and from home. The working hours are typically 8am to 5:30pm PST, Monday-Friday, but are somewhat flexible, as we are more about accomplishing certain tasks and objectives with a high level of responsiveness than adhering to a set clock in/clock out time. Occasionally, there is a need to work additional hours on evenings and weekends which might happen a few times a year. You’ll experience a family-friendly culture, where values, intelligence, motivation, behavior, and experience are highly regarded. Our best people understand the team and what we want to accomplish, they share our values and are driven to make a difference. This position entails minimal travel unless requested by the client. International travel is an option.

You will work with our team to provide advice to for-profit clients as well as non-profit clients at the cusp of impact at scale. This would entail the following areas: modeling, FP&A, budgeting/strategic planning, investor relations, capital raising, mergers and acquisitions, IPO preparation, scaling operations, attending board meetings.
