Our growing finance team is looking for a Financial Analyst to improve how we analyze, forecast, & report on revenue performance for our existing customer base. You will present in-depth modeling to understand business trends, variance drivers, & identify opportunities to add value & reduce risk. You are a true problem-solver & will work to automate inefficient processes across our business. Youll also collaborate with our sales operations team & executive leadership team to help us align on data standards & principles.
Why Youll Love This Role:
As part of our finance team, youll have the opportunity to partner with our leadership team to support customer & revenue growth, while building on your skills in reporting & dashboard optimization. Youll get to see the strategies you helped build come to life, & will be a key player in building incentive compensation plans that drive high performance behavior & revenue generation. At the end of the day, your work will support Newselas growth & will ultimately help us deliver engaging products that inspire enthusiastic learning in K-12 schools nationwide.
Why Well Love You:
You are obsessed with analyzing data, spotting trends, & making recommendations based on the patterns you identify -- & youve done this successfully as part of a finance team before. You have strong attention to detail & provide a structured, data-driven approach to business problem solving. You are a self-starter who isnt afraid to ask difficult questions & is comfortable interfacing with senior leadership. You love Excel, have experience in Looker or other data visualization tools, & cant remember the last time you built a report that was not automated/refreshable. You may have experience in sales operations (territory planning, quota setting, & compensation plan creation), but if not, youre excited to learn these skills on the job.
