The Role:

The FP&A Analyst will work with our Manager, FP&A to maintain and augment Newsela’s core financial model, lead Newsela’s annual budgeting process, and manage ongoing monthly & quarterly reforecasts. Collaborating across the company, you will be relied on to provide strategic support to senior leadership to ensure smart business decisions and efficient capital allocation. This role will be critical in analyzing trends in existing KPI to provide forward-looking insights, and continuously iterate to improve our reporting and analytics. You will develop financial models and analyses to determine ROIs for new products/market strategies and business development opportunities. Additionally, you will assist in preparing 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 senior leadership across the company.  You will help drive strategic direction through critical financial analysis and target setting. 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 reading content.

Why We’ll Love You: 

You have 2-5+ years experience in FP&A, corporate finance, investment banking, 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 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.
