We are currently seeking an experienced CFO to join the team as both CFO and as a genuine business partner to the senior management team. You will have full responsibility for all aspects of finance but can also expect significant exposure to broader general management issues, including having the ability to run investment transactions.
This is a rare chance to join a highly successful technology investor at a senior level, in what is a broad role covering finance, operations and investment.
Candidates should have a passion for the technology sector, have experience gained in technology funds or venture-capital-backed companies as CFOs or/and ideally have experience on VC/PE transactions as principals. Additional experience supporting founders on key strategic and operational issues, with genuine operational experience would be highly advantageous. Candidates should possess strong financial intellect and skills, with the ability to understand fund structures and manage a broad range of financial responsibilities with the support of advisors
