Finance – Finance /
Circle is building the modern community platform for every creator and brand in the world: think "Shopify for creator/brand-led communities". We make it really easy for creators and brands to bring their discussions, members, and content all into one place. Circle is a product-led company, with thousands of paying customers.
We're a cross-platform community product built for web and mobile, and we're looking for a Finance Manager to help build best-in-class finance systems for a fast growing, well financed and venture backed company.
As the second hire in Finance, you will have the opportunity to be involved in all aspects of building the financial infrastructure and systems needed for Circle to eventually serve 1M creators and brands. You’ll work cross-functionally across the entire organization to empower Circle’s business leaders to make sound decisions in a fast moving and highly complex environment.
This is a 100% remote role. We're now a fully remote team of 65 (and growing!) based in the U.S., Canada, Colombia, Portugal, India, Argentina, Slovenia, and other countries. We have a preference for candidates in U.S. and European time zones.
