💵 Head of Finance
Remote (US-based) or San Francisco, CA /
Clubhouse is a new type of social product based on voice. It allows people everywhere to talk, tell stories, develop ideas, deepen friendships, and meet interesting new people around the world.
Our early users love the product and we have been featured in publications like The New York Times, Forbes, The Telegraph, TechCrunch, CNBC, and WIRED. Today, we are a small and productive team with a strong background in consumer products. We are well funded, with recent backing from top-tier VCs and many of the best angel investors from Silicon Valley and beyond.
As we open up Clubhouse to the whole world, we are seeking to add a few extraordinary people to our growing team. If you think you would be a good fit, please let us know! 🙏
As the Head of Finance, you’ll work closely with our founders and leaders across the business to plan, monitor, and control finances across the business. Your focus will be enabling rapid growth, while ensuring effective cost controls and global compliance.
During the pandemic, we are working remotely. This role will be open to both local and US-based, remote candidates. We will have an office in San Francisco when we are able to safely reopen our office for those who prefer to work in person.
Who you are
You are experienced at startup finance. You have expertise building finance functions for fast-growth startups. You have been an early finance leader. You have built and driven financial planning before. You can analyze business drivers and strategically balance growth and cost control.

You take pride in what you do. You care deeply about your work. You dive deep into models and know every important number and lever. You understand business equations and will rebuild a model until it reflects reality. You can easily answer questions about the data because you’ve already thought about it and dug into it. People know they can count on you to get things done.
You enjoy your work. You love what you do, think about it in your free time, and often find yourself building at strange hours—not because you feel you have to, but because you’re so excited to create something big for the world. Your favorite thing to do is to take on a huge challenge and pull it off.
You care about doing the right thing. You value diversity and go out of your way to ensure others feel welcome. You enjoy hanging out with your teammates, have a low-ego, and make the workplace more fun for everyone.
What you will do
You’ll drive strategic financial decisions. As part of the Clubhouse team, you will move fast. You will build, report on, and analyze budgets and long-term forecasts - while staying flexible. You’ll flag expenses that don’t make sense and help us negotiate. You’ll identify opportunities and help us understand the business potential of specific revenue models and markets.
You’ll grow and improve rapidly. At Clubhouse you’ll be working with an incredible team, who love to learn from and teach each other. You’ll find yourself stretching to new areas, immersed in feedback, challenged by your teammates, and growing your skills on a daily basis.
You’ll ensure compliance and build accounting. You will ensure compliance for monetization efforts globally, as required by state and by country. You’ll build our first in-house accounting function. You’ll implement software that will make finance easy to scale.
You’ll be an owner. We believe in hiring people and giving them as much responsibility as they can handle. Whether it’s building the financial model or single-handedly figuring out how to scale the right monetization products to each region, we’ll make sure you are always pushing yourself to new levels.
You’ll create something meaningful. Social products allow people to connect in ways that were never before possible. When the telephone was invented, it suddenly allowed people to speak with others across the world. Thanks to FaceTime, grandparents everywhere can now watch their grandchildren grow up. At Clubhouse, you’ll be figuring out something entirely new for the world—a positive product that brings people’s voices together for deep and meaningful conversations, creates new relationships, builds empathy across cultures, entertains people, and helps people develop ideas that change the course of their lives.
As an early team member at Clubhouse you will be a critical voice and have significant influence over the direction of the company. We will compensate you well, invest deeply in your development, and ensure this is the single best work experience of your life. If you think you might be a good fit for our team, we’d love to hear from you!
