Do you want to spend your day working exclusively with other brilliant people like yourself? Would you like the rare opportunity to work closely and learn business skills from seasoned senior executives? Do you know you could make a tremendous impact on business results if just given the opportunity?
What You Will Be Doing
This role reports directly to one of the C-level executives of a large, multi-national group of enterprise software companies. Our differentiated growth strategy is focused on high-velocity M&A, we acquire a new enterprise software company every week. Each week you will be assigned a new task, personally be expected to quickly learn what is needed to solve the problem, then dig into the details to find the essence of the problem and the root cause of any issues, and then finally resolve the problem yourself. While you will be exposed to team leadership, this job is mostly about doing things yourself vs. telling others what to do.
In this role, you will gain experience across the full spectrum of tasks that face the executives in our organization.
Finance Specialist Key Responsibilities
- Insightful : You can’t be wrong, naive, or mis-educated
- Accurate : No sloppy or careless errors
- Precise w/ specific examples : No generalitities or platitudes
- Clearly Communicated : Doesn’t need to be customer-presentable or “pretty”
- Delivered quickly : Tasks are solved in days, not weeks or months
- High IQ – This role requires someone in the top 1% with respect to raw intelligence. The problems you need to solve on a daily basis are extremely challenging because they are real and have tangible impact to our business.
- Driven to Learn – There is zero training for this job. Literally every week, sometimes every day, you are going to be assigned a problem in an area in which you have no experience. You must love to spend hours reading and devouring information to quickly become conversant, if not an expert, in each of these areas.
- Results Oriented – We have a fast-paced culture with sky-high expectations along with unlimited opportunity to learn and have impact. You will typically have hours or days, not weeks or months, to get each problem solved and move on to the next.
The reason people fail in this role, despite the above qualities:
- They want to be high level and strategic vs. in the details and specific
- They have a tolerance for errors
- They have abysmal communication skills
