The right Finance Manager doesn’t need this job description, and won’t wake up in the morning with the thought “I am the Finance Manager at Invisible Technologies,” but with the thought: “Have we taken over the world yet?”
The right person already called me and told me these words: I know numbers. I love them and they love me. I want to construct financial policies, procedures, controls, and build reporting systems to protect our financial assets and allow our business can scale.
I find problems, I fix them and feel very satisfied with a tremendously valuable, perhaps a little tedious, job well done. I can pay invoices in my sleep and take little joy in perfectly aligned accounts. I am detailed oriented, contentious, and trustworthy. I’m a team player but don’t mind working independently. I will support Invisible’s operational strategies by maintaining financial controls and will make our team breathe a huge sigh of relief when they see an email from me stating, “Don’t worry. I’ve got this one.”
I’m a Hufflepuff. A proud Hufflepuff! I know the value of steadfastness and kindness and standing by your teammates. My work is flawless and I’m very proud of that fact. I want to be part of something amazing, and I’m eager to get to work. , I’ll know that Invisible will be dramatically improved by my essential contribution. I will take great pride in the work we do at Invisible. I’ll know, without my efforts, the company couldn’t function and continue to grow into an unstoppable, paradigm altering force.

The culture is imbued with romantic capitalist values. These are just a few:
Heroism Be insanely ambitious. You should want your boss’s job. You have a moral obligation to seek power and use it for good. The modern knight fights abstract dragons.
Challenge Welcome adversity, struggles, and suffering. Steel yourself for the worst. Challenge problems to a duel. Seek the widest possible stage for your talents.
Meritocracy Create and measure the value you create. Strive to be the best.
Ownership You are the CEO until told otherwise.
Collaboration Solving problems together benefits everyone.
Competition If you outperform, you will be rewarded.
Glory Do the great work of your life, here and now, the work that you were made for, and that you will be remembered for. Seek your aristeia moment.
Truth Seek the truth. Express yourself freely. Confront problems head-on. Be as transparent as possible. Don’t hide the bad and the ugly. Stand up for your opinion by engaging in debate. Change your mind when you’re wrong.
Intensity Work hard. Don’t waste time. The more fully you absorb yourself in your work, the more aggressively you work and the better you work.
