We’re looking for an associate who loves solving complex problems. As our first finance associate, you will help build our strategy and ensure we are making efficient, data-driven decisions. You will partner with teams across the business to support financial decisions by evaluating effectiveness and developing creative ways to grow. You will be integral in driving reporting as well as developing and monitoring critical business metrics.

Preferred Qualifications:

  • Available to start in January and work a minimum 10 hours in office per week.
  • Seeking undergraduate or graduate students in their 3rd or 4th year, specializing in business, finance, economics, or a related field.
  • Experience in a startup environment for a previous internship would be highly preferred.
  • Proficient in Excel, Gmail, and other business-focused software.
  • Has a passion for learning and problem solving.
  • Comfortable asking probing questions and displaying persistence in task completion.

What you will love:

  • We believe if we aren’t first, we’re last! We need to be the best at what we do. We must set the highest standards in our winner-take-all market. We fight for every dollar and never settle. We are all owners, hustlers, and streetfighters - working together to achieve a unified goal.
  • Anything we can do tomorrow, we can do today. We drive a culture of high velocity, leaving no room for analysis paralysis. We promote efficiency and progress in every step we take. If it will help the business, just do it. It’s better to get a speeding ticket than a parking ticket.
  • We are a customer-obsessed company and believe in making it magical: Our members are at the center of our universe. We continuously strive to create experiences that are 10x better at every touchpoint. We anticipate their needs and go above and beyond, delivering experiences that surpass expectations.
  • We believe in working as a team to provide solutions, not problems. We are committed to reaching our goals, no matter the challenges. We tackle projects as a team, with a "jump in with both feet" mentality. Every roadblock is an opportunity for innovation. No task is too big or too small, and we take on challenges beyond our core responsibilities, spreading optimism and confidence.
  • We embrace radical candor. We embrace difficult questions and uncomfortable answers. Our decisions are grounded in data and facts, leading to meaningful and sustainable outcomes. We value giving and receiving open, honest feedback. We critique ideas, not individuals. We embrace radical transparency and rigorous thinking, avoiding decisions driven by ego or self-interest.

Our total compensation for this position can range from $15/hr - 25/hr. The actual amounts may vary based on factors such as experience, knowledge, skills, and abilities related to the position.
