Medal.tv – Finance /
Full-time
Medal.tv is one of the fastest-growing consumer applications in gaming! Our users capture and share millions of videos every week, and connect with one another around their shared gaming experiences.

We are an international fully remote team, where everyone works autonomously with the expectation that you can be available for team syncs in the same core hours (9:00 am and 12:00 pm PST). The exact times and days vary per team. We offer competitive compensation (salary + equity) that is location and level-based.

We are excited to bring on a new finance leader to build and own our financial operations. Ideally, you have experience working at rapidly growing, consumer-facing technology startups.

You will have a huge impact on the business operations and work closely with C-Suite leadership to ensure we are able to meet our obligations and plan for our future. You will lead our financial department which currently consists of a bookkeeper and a Finance and Operations manager in the Netherlands, and outsourced accounting and controller resources in the United States.

Your work will span both high-level financial strategy as well as the hands-on nitty-gritty day-to-day finance operations. Since we are a startup you will wear a lot of hats in the accounting and finance domain, so you should be eager to take on and improve our processes. The ability to identify and implement best practices is highly valued at Medal.tv.

We are based in the United States and in The Netherlands, so you should ideally be comfortable with accounting and finance norms in both jurisdictions.
