FP&A Manager

| Greater NYC Area
As an FP&A Manager at Skillshare, we’ll look to your expertise leveraging data to provide key financial insights that drive the company’s strategic decisions, financial forecasts, and operating plans. Reporting to the Controller/Director of Finance, you’ll work closely with the CEO, executive team and departmental stakeholders to ensure we’re making the best decisions possible for the business – which means opportunity for impact and exposure across the board. 

What you do day-to-day:

  • Facilitate the annual budget and monthly forecast process, including analysis of consolidated subscriber growth and revenue projections and preparing board and management-level presentations
  • Manage departmental cost center budgets and serve as a finance business partner to the respective budget owners
  • Work closely with the accounting team to understand and analyze historical financial performance, as well as our Data & Insights team to model our subscriber growth and retention (and ensure that we are following data best practices)
  • Work cross-functionally with various business and operational teams to analyze and incorporate go-forward business decisions into the financial rolling forecast model
  • Provide ad hoc analysis and modeling to support ongoing business decisions as requested
  • Establish a deep understanding of the business and leverage data to build insights about our markets, products and competitors
  • Develop and deliver robust, consistent and accurate analysis of business performance using KPI dashboards and non-financial data to highlight performance
  • Analyze data and facilitate sound management decisions through financial and metric reporting while highlighting material variances, trends, & risks/opportunities, and providing insightful commentary to the business and partners
  • Support the Director in the development and ongoing improvement of the FP&A function, including driving consistency and improvement in business analysis and reporting

What you'll need to be successful:

  • Degree in Business, Finance, Accounting, or a related field
  • Demonstrated ability to manipulate and model large volumes of data, interpret and identify pertinent issues, and communicate out insights in a meaningful and concise manner
  • Excel wizardry – advanced formulas; pivot tables; modeling, etc.
  • Advanced experience with SQL and large data sets
  • Hands-on experience with one of the major BI tools (Chartio, Looker, etc.) is a major plus
  • Ability to work cross-functionally and guide non-finance teams with robust data and analysis
  • Investment banking experience highly preferred but not required

Why you want this job:

  • Impact: Leveraging and understanding our financial data is at the heart of our growth – your insights will be the foundation for many of our most strategic business decisions.
  • Exposure: You will have a lot of exposure to the executive team and core operations of the company.
  • Our growth: Skillshare is growing rapidly and we will need you to ensure our financial models and budgets give us visibility into our revenue and cash flow.
  • Our mission: We’re doing work that matters – connecting lifelong learners around the world and empowering them to pursue their creativity.
  • Our team: We have a passionate, talented team that is a lot of fun to work with.
  • Flexibility: We believe that doing your best work means living a full life. That means different things for everyone, so we optimize for trust, invest to support remote teams, have an unlimited vacation policy (with a required minimum!), and encourage work-life balance.

An Insider's view of Skillshare

What’s the vibe like in the office?

We balance being both focused and flexible in our office. In this kind of fluid environment, we can seamlessly ease in and out of individual heads-down time to group sessions; from meditation to collaboration; from desk to the lounge. The vibe lends us the freedom to play to our strengths and value our differences in working styles.

Jenni

Senior Product Designer

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

Cross-team collaboration is frequent and organic at Skillshare; we foster a uniquely friendly atmosphere of openness and shared purpose. Through cross-team threads, project-based meetings, comments on RFC's, pull request reviews, Q&A sessions, and, of course, simple conversations, collaboration commonly happens across a table or across time zones.

Engineering Manager

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

Skillshare has supported my career growth and trajectory tremendously. I started here 3 years ago on the Community team, but after discovering a passion for coding, Skillshare provided me with a mentor and on the job time to learn. It's been two years since I switched careers, and I'm so grateful that I get to come in and keep learning every day.

Software Engineer

How do you make yourself accessible to the rest of the team?

As a management team, we strongly believe in making ourselves accessible. This includes: 1:1s with direct reports, skip-level meetings, team-wide meetings, coffees with people across departments, and attending team events. More broadly, we apply the same foundational rule we all learned in kindergarten: treat people the way you want to be treated.

Sabrina

VP, Operations

What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

We're in an exciting position - we have a product that we believe in and a community that believes in us. The question we face is: how can we build a platform which works for the Skillshare of today, but will scale to the needs of the Skillshare of the future? It’s not enough to keep up with growth; we must build for where our growth will take us.
