The Role: 

The FP&A Associate will work with both the Director and Manager of FP&A to support the maintenance and ongoing improvement of Newsela’s financial models & reporting packages, annual budgeting & quarterly forecasting process, and month end close. Collaborating across multiple functions, you will be relied upon to provide accurate reporting and expense tracking through detailed reporting and headcount tracking. You’ll also prepare monthly variance reporting and provide value-added analytical support to the Finance team. Additionally, you will support the accounting team in their monthly and quarterly close process to ensure accuracy of financials. This role will be critical in maintaining headcount on a monthly basis, and continuously iterate to improve related reporting and analytics. You will also assist in preparing financial materials including board decks, investor presentations, and other executive updates. 

Why You’ll Love This Role: 

In this role, you will be at the center of financial analytics at Newsela and will have significant exposure to the Finance leadership team. You will help manage critical expense drivers and reports. You will also have the opportunity to become an expert in SaaS metrics, an area of financial analytics of increasing importance as the subscription-based economy continues to grow rapidly. Within our high-growth company, you will be joining a very tight-knit finance team that is committed to building out a best-in-class operational and analytical function. Your work will help ensure the growth of a business that is transforming the way students learn through customized, engaging learning content.

Why We’ll Love You:  

You have 1-3 years experience in FP&A, corporate finance, financial strategy/operations, or a closely related field. We’re looking for someone who thrives in a dynamic and fast-paced environment where you may wear multiple hats as a financial model guru, internal consultant, and business strategist. You are well-versed in financial modeling, with the ability to identify key model drivers and build 3-statement financial models, as well as operational models to forecast the future with accuracy. You’ve also demonstrated success in having a fundamental understanding of the FP&A process, accounting principles, and how to navigate typical scenarios that come up in managing to budget/forecast. You are driven by metrics, and strive to partner across the organization to help add value to the business wherever possible. You are a trusted advisor with exceptional communication skills. You plan and project for the future, but look back to see where we could have done better and learn from mistakes.
