Job purpose

You’re a CPA, you work for an established accounting firm or maybe you’re working your way up the corporate ladder at an established medium to large-sized company. If you’re comfortable, complacent and prefer a stagnant work environment stick with that job. 3BG is a venture-backed, high growth company in the “scale-up” phase of its business lifecycle and we’re looking for a financial professional with that fire in their belly. This individual must have a preference for a dynamic and fast-paced work environment, have entrepreneurial tendencies (as you’ll be creating new initiatives on top managing current ones) and driven by clear opportunities to become a leader within this executive team and share in the overall value your help create.

It’s easy to see the Finance Manager as a glorified “scorekeeper” reporting arrears on things like revenue, expenses, profit/loss, and cash flow/burn. But this work is actually a very small part of the Finance Manager’s larger value. At 3BG Supply Co. we think a “great” Finance Manager doesn’t just keep the “score” — he or she puts points on the board. When hired, this individual will have a clear path to becoming a superstar on the executive team here at 3BG.

Like the CEO, our The Finance Director / Finance Manager will have a company-wide view of the business. They’ll operate in the middle of all the data flows in and around the business. They will have the opportunity to use this vantage point to continue making 3BG great and lead a high-quality finance organization that manages critical responsibilities for the company. Lastly, they will do this by informing important strategic and operational decisions; finding new insights to improve business performance, and ideally being consigliere to the CEO and extended 3BG Leadership Team.
