Flex is a growth-stage, NYC headquartered FinTech company that is creating the best rent payment experience. It’s hard to believe that it’s 2024 and paying rent on time is expensive, inflexible, and difficult. We’re here to change that! Flex enables our users to pay rent throughout the month on a schedule that better fits their finances and budget. Our mission is to empower as many renters as possible with flexibility over their most significant recurring expense. After deliberately keeping a stealth profile as we built up unprecedented investor support and an enthusiastic user base, we are looking for motivated individuals to help us keep our mission growing. Will you be a part of the team?

As a Finance team member, you will have a key role in developing and shaping Flex’s business and financial strategy. You will be joining the Strategic Finance team, a group of business experts who own predictability, promote ROI maximization and serve as connective tissue between internal business operations, external perspectives and key strategic decisioning. In this role, you’ll work closely with one of our Business Units to bring business model expertise, financial prowess and analytical firepower to key strategic guidance and problem solving.

  • Support the creation of metrics, reporting, forecasting and performance targets to ensure alignment between Business Unit strategy, data and measurement
  • Help create a sophisticated understanding of unit economics to drive high ROI decision making within the Business Unit
  • Efficiently lead research gathering and data analysis to support problem-solving across functional areas
  • Develop, deliver, and maintain insightful reporting on KPIs, growth trends and operational metrics to key internal and external stakeholders
  • Build clear communication and influence decision-making within groups and leadership audiences

What We’re Looking For:

  • Financial modeling wizardry and a deep understanding of fintech and/or financial services business models
  • 4+ years of strategic finance, FP&A, biz ops, consulting or investment banking experience required
  • Direct experience with operations or strategy at high-growth tech company preferred
  • A Bachelor's Degree, or equivalent degree in Business, Finance, Accounting or relevant field
  • Highly analytical and interested in complex data analysis
  • Superior communication skills and the ability to collaborate with all levels of an organization
  • Advanced Microsoft Excel, Word, and PowerPoint skills required
  • Experience with databases, SQL and BI tools a plus

The national pay range for this role is $100,000-$150,000 in base salary. Individual compensation will be commensurate with the candidate's experience aligned with Flex's internal leveling guidelines and benchmarks.
