Teachable's mission is to empower Creators to monetize their expertise. Our online platform enables individuals & small businesses (our Creators) to build, host & sell online courses.
In April 2020 Teachable was acquired by Hotmart BV (Hotmart), an online platform designed to enable people to make a living from their passions. Hotmart's operations & customers are concentrated in Brazil, but the company is increasingly global in scope, with Teachable serving as its base of US operations. Hotmart's investors include General Atlantic Partners & GIC (the sovereign wealth fund of Singapore).
Following the acquisition by Hotmart, the role of the Financial Controller has become increasingly focused on (a) liaising with & supporting the requirements of our parent company; (b) building out the team so that the Accounting function can scale; & (c) preparing for the potential of public company status.
The Financial Controller is responsible for all aspects of Teachable's Accounting function, including monthly/quarterly close, audit, accounts receivable & accounts payable and, in partnership with outside accountants, income tax. (Teachable sales tax & indirect tax activities are handled by the Tax team.) This role reports jointly into Hotmart's Global Financial Controller & Teachable's Director of Finance. The candidate must therefore be comfortable building relationships across organizations, ensuring the Teachable Accounting team has clear requirements from disparate stakeholders & is accountable for meeting those requirements. The Financial Controller's peers include the FP&A Manager & the Manager of Tax. The Financial Controller will have the opportunity to build out the accounting team, with further headcount planned for 2021, while simultaneously ensuring that we maintain a high standard of excellence in all day-to-day accounting operations.
This is a full-time in-person position based in our New York, NY office. (Note that Teachable is fully remote until September 2021.)
