Impact of role

Your role will have a wide far-reaching impact as we deliver first class data solutions. You will help shape how the finance team works and delivers while also solving difficult problems with innovative answers. Your innovative answers have the opportunity to spearhead a new product offering for Intropic to help our clients effectively and efficiently solve problems across their finance, talent and customer systems. 

Instead of producing financial reports, you will work on building smarter more efficient solutions using inputs from the business and external sources to draw insights, highlight movements, and interact with business leaders. More than a visualisation tool, we want our leaders to push information to the finance team; updating budgets and forecasts in real-time. This role involves looking at a disparate range of services used in managing a business, designing and building a single platform over these.

This is a role for an entrepreneurial person who backs themselves to learn on the fly and solve problems. You will report directly to the VP of Engineering with a dotted line to the Head of Finance and Operations. 

You are a self-starter, self-driven person who is comfortable working in an environment where you have access to financial information and have the ability and drive to take ownership of this problem statement. Your engineering peers will be able to help you solve problems, but will not have access to the same data set.
