Director of FP&A

| Greater NYC Area

At White Ops, we’re all hackers. This doesn’t mean you have to hold a key to the internet (although one of our founders does!), but it does require approaching problems in unconventional ways. We are attacking criminal botnets through the ad fraud that finances their operations. Our proprietary technology detects and prevents sophisticated online fraud. By reducing the incentives for crime, we are making the internet a better place. Our mighty team of humans have several things in common:

We are hackers.
We create tau for ourselves and each other.
We think big and move fast.
We practice humility.
We “pwn it”.

What we do:

We keep the internet safe by fighting organized cybercrime. Our products accurately detect and prevent even the most sophisticated bots and our customers include some of the web's largest and most forward-thinking companies.

What you'll do:

As our Director of FP&A, you will help steer the company’s rapid growth. You will be a strategic partner to business leaders and report in to the CFO as you help us to define the future of White Ops. We are excited to bring on an enthusiastic and passionate leader to help us continue to build and develop strong financial methodologies and practices.

  • Taking the lead on financial modeling and re-forecasting (in collaboration with the Finance team)
  • Partnering with Accounting on monthly close process, financial reporting, and preparation of GAAP financial documents
  • Supporting in the design and evolution of key dashboards for all segments of the business, as well as be responsible for the price list
  • Taking an active role in investor relations, fund-raising, and corporate development conversations
  • Leading and developing a small team, as well as potentially growing it over time as the company expands
  • Playing a key role in preparing White Ops up for a potential future Initial Public Offering
  • Getting your hands dirty with ad hoc financial analysis and strategic insights as needed

Who you are:

  • An expert FP&A leader with a history of helping fast-growing companies or have worked within a business unit at a larger technology company
  • Excited to take ownership of our budgeting and forecasting processes
  • You value being a strong leader and excel at building and developing your team
  • Experience in either Technology Investment Banking or Strategy Consulting
  • You have a superb ability to interact and influence leaders and can effectively communicate and connect with employees at all levels of the organization
  • Hands-on financial modeling experience (Excel/Sheets) and presentation acumen (PPT, Slides)
  • You have experience with system implementation (NetSuite, Intacct, Host Analytics, Salesforce.com, Anaplan, Looker, or similar) and a knack for understanding and navigating new technology
  • BA/BS degree required (business or technical); MBA and/or CFA preferred

In your first year, success will look like:

  • Taking full ownership of the financial model and internal/external financial reporting
  • Implementing monthly re-forecasting/budgeting processes across the organization
  • Partnering with department leaders to quickly understand the impact of changing business assumptions on P&L
  • Developing long-range financial planning and pricing models that map to customer value across current and new markets
  • Implementing an FP&A system to align finance and operations across White Ops
  • Taking ownership of business intelligence strategies and implementation
  • Establishing and optimizing systems to centralize / integrate data to common platforms for analysis and presentation, including financial reporting, critical metrics, and other operational metrics

We understand it takes a diverse team of highly intelligent, passionate, curious, and creative people to solve the challenges involved in protecting the Internet. Our dynamic team of humans have incredible perspectives to share, just as we know you do, and we take great pride in being an equal opportunity workplace.

An Insider's view of White Ops

What are some social events your company does?

We regularly host guest speakers, organize monthly social gatherings, and have ad hoc happy hours weekly. Every six months, we put together a company "on-site" at one of our global office locations as a way to socialize and share knowledge. Each team also organizes their own outings, off-sites, and attends conferences frequently.

Virginia

Director of Talent

What does your typical day look like?

I start my day with code reviews then have a standup with my team to go over tasks undertakings. A bit of brainstorming and pair programming with one of the developers which leads to a nice break involving lunch/snacks and/or video gaming/card games with the team and then I'll finish up tasks or carry over the remaining tasks to the following day.

What are some things you learned at the company?

Exceptional culture and mission can enable us to live meaningfully and accomplish the greatest work of our lives. If I’m spending 1/3 of my waking hours working, I want to solve complex problems and design experiences that make the world a better place with a team that inspires me to be the best version of myself. I discovered part of my ataraxia!

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

We always encourage team members to experiment with new technologies and explore their use cases in our products. We know that technology is ever changing and never stays the same. If you are not pushing forward then you are probably going backward. That's why we are creating a culture that encourages creativity and innovation
