Haul is building a labor marketplace that provides trucking companies in the US with a pool of vetted, on-demand truck drivers to operate their trucks.

Founded by Uber alumni and venture backed, Haul is looking to rethink the employment model of 3.5 million trucker drivers and support a $800 billion trucking industry in the United States.

Haul maintains office hubs in the Bay Area and Denver, CO.

About the role
We are excited to grow our strategy team at Haul and looking to bring on new team members. We’re seeking highly motivated people with strong financial and start-up backgrounds that want to disrupt the way people travel. The role is highly cross-functional, involving coordination across a number of groups within Haul, including finance, supply, product, engineering, and operations. In other words, you will sit in the “control tower” and get exposure to all parts of the business.

Successful candidates will have a strong quantitative background, superior financial accounting and analytical skills, bias toward action, exceptional organizational and communication skills, humility and can change context quickly. We move quickly as a team to drive company-wide decisions, thus a balance of getting the details right while still moving fast is important. Finally, we want someone who wants to learn & grow: you will get as much out of this as you want and will grow in the process.

What you'll do
Own Financial Models: Develop financial models to forecast revenue, costs, and KPIs across business units. Create unit economics frameworks to evaluate the performance of various products, features, and markets to inform future business decisions. Develop models to gauge TAM and profitability for new market and product launches.

Own our planning and forecasting: You own and coordinate our annual planning and monthly forecasting process. You lead all aspects of financial modeling and analysis and challenge the inputs of all departments to continuously increase our forecasting accuracy

Strategic Initiatives: Develop data-driven materials and other external reporting to advise investors and other key stakeholders on overall performance. Suggest new financial and operational business metrics to further improve performance. The strategic finance function is the starting point for financial initiatives in the organization, you lead the charge and build the V1 for new verticals, and greenfield topics

Problem-solving: You identify problems and ask “why”? We are first and foremost a technology company, so we want a data-driven mindset, strong business judgment, and proven ability to perform analysis, draw key insights, and form and execute a strategy.

Fundraising: You sit in the control tower and help Haul raise consecutive rounds of funding

Haul supports a "hybrid" office model where team members work in the company's offices for at least three days per week and elsewhere for the rest of the week.

For an all-remote position, we're putting a lot of thoughts on building an all-inclusive remote environment. Prioritizing documentation over verbal communication, asynchronous vs. in person.
