  • Remote: Remote
  • Type: Direct Hire
  • Job #42003

We are partnering with a $7B public company who is looking to hire a  Senior Financial Analyst (essentially a mini CFO) to partner with the GM of their highest growth business segment. As a “mini CFO” you will be owning a P&L and advising Senior leadership on strategic ways to grow their business. This is less of a reporting role and more of an operational business partnership position, so if you’re good at building relationships and want a role where you’ll have a seat at the table this could definitely be something worth exploring.

Our ideal candidate will have 2+ years of forecasting, budgeting, and planning experience. We are also looking for Finance professionals with a strong executive presence who are good at building relationships and communicating with people outside of Finance.

SkyWater is thrilled to be partnering with one of its best clients (yet again!) to add a lead financial analyst (M&A focused) to their team. This company has 85 consecutive quarters of growth and an attractive company culture – fast-paced, promoting from within, and a group of motivated and driven individuals looking to advance their career. We've placed a ton of people at this organization and they all love it!

This is an incredibly sexy role that will elevate your career immediately – you will be the point person for all M&A activity of the entire company (!!!) and have tons of exposure and interaction with C-suite level individuals.  Plus, the role will also have an element of FP&A to it (supporting the budgeting and forecasting for HR expenses) so you will get to flex between M&A and FP&A, never getting bored! 

I need a driver – someone who gets a ton of energy driving new processes and new initiatives. I need someone who is agile and fluid – joining an ever-growing company requires constant flexibility. I need someone who is confident – interacting with C-suite level individuals everyday is not only comfortable, but exciting!
