About Framework
At Framework, our mission is to fix consumer electronics. We believe products can be better both for users and the environment. Unlike most electronics products on the market today, ours are designed to be repairable and upgradeable to enable long usage lifetimes and deep personalization.

To support our product ecosystems, we are also launching a marketplace allowing users to buy and sell new and used devices and parts.

We come from successful consumer electronics startups including the founding team of Oculus and e-commerce companies, and we’re funded to fulfill our mission. We care deeply about building a diverse and inclusive team, and we hope you do too!

The Position
We’re looking for a Finance Manager to be the first member of Framework’s finance, planning, and biz ops team.  This role spans general finance and FP&A functions, as well as leading overall economic strategy around a complex consumer hardware product and marketplace business.  We need a creative problem solver who has both deep existing knowledge of hardware businesses and an interest in adapting that to the novel business model we have adopted in Framework.  Since we’re an early stage start-up, this role can cover a broad range of functional areas in finance and business operations depending on your strengths and interests.

We’re headquartered in Burlingame, CA, and are open to local, relocated, or remote candidates.
