Getting together with real people in real life makes powerful things happen. Side hustles become careers, ideas become movements, & chance encounters become lifelong connections. Meetup brings people together to create thriving communities. Show up. Change lives.

Our NYC team is looking for an entrepreneurial, growth-minded leader to join our executive team & develop our global business. The CFO will be a key member of the executive team, reporting to & working closely with the CEO. The ideal candidate will be grounded in Meetups mission with exceptional strategic, financial analysis, & accounting skills, possessing deep experience in dramatically scaling a business.

This role is not your typical CFO role with a singular focus on finance. This position will oversee legal, corporate development, finance, accounting, & administrative operations.

What youll do:

  • Lead all company systems & processes for forecasting, budgeting, & revenue monitoring based on sophisticated financial modeling & analysis
  • Develop effective solutions to improve Meetups financial position & results, & contribute proactively to business optimization
  • Provide analytical oversight of strategic company business decisions
  • Own P&L & financial projections, pricing & valuation models & company presentations
  • Lead teams across finance, legal, accounting & operations
  • Oversee regulatory & compliance matters in all areas of accounting, finance, payroll, & taxation
  • Provide significant input in determining business health KPI's, monitor & highlight notable points proactively, including revenue tracking, margin analysis & pricing
  • Identify all potential corporate development & M&A activity for the business
  • Represent Meetup by effectively communicating to external stakeholders (the CEO & CFO of WeWork most notably) & internal leadership
  • Prioritize & work with the CTO & company leadership on CapEx/OpEx/P&L cost savings initiatives

Youre the ideal teammate if you have:

  • 15+ years' progressive finance experience in a financial & business leadership role
  • A passion for bringing people together, creating community and changing lives
  • Previous experience in a rapidly growing startup/technology firm
  • Extensive experience working in direct-to-consumer digital subscription businesses and/or marketplaces
  • Entrepreneurial spirit & passion for building
  • Desire to work in a dynamic start-up, & be effective resolving ambiguities
  • Demonstrated ability to set priorities, be flexible & manage multiple projects simultaneously
  • Ability to think creatively & be resourceful within the context of financial & strategic planning
  • High intellectual capacity, particularly in an analytical & strategic context
  • Unquestionable personal integrity & business judgment

This is an exciting time to join as a Meetup executive. After 16 years of leadership by our Founder, we recently welcomed a new CEO to the company. We are now going through the process of re-evaluating our priorities & business model as we shift from a subscription business to a two-sided marketplace. Executives who join will be part of this highly dynamic strategy process that will impact our future for years to come. We are also a year into being acquired by WeWork, an amazing partner who continues to significantly invest in our growth.

Our team is bold, supportive, & passionate about bringing people together in real life to create community for everyone. We care about moving fast, real-world change, & building diverse, dynamic teams. We were recently acquired by WeWork, & the company is investing significantly in our growth. You in?
