Position: Chief Finance Officer
Location: Remote
Employment Type: Part-time (Initially)
Remuneration: Equity Only 

Skribbl is an innovative and rapidly growing digital marketplace selling stunning, hand-drawn illustrations. Our mission is to empower creative professionals with human-made design assets. As we continue to expand our market presence, we are seeking an experienced and highly motivated CFO to join our team. This role will be instrumental in developing strategic financial plans, securing funding, and driving commercial planning to support our growth trajectory.

This opportunity is ideally suited to someone who is looking to invest their time and talent into building a start-up from the ground up.

As CFO, you’ll join our CEO and take ownership of our finances. We need someone with experience of securing funding, as well as the ability to take control of all aspects of financial planning and reporting, including the commercial strategy.

The role is open for someone who is mid-level to senior, but we need someone who can roll their sleeves up and get things done.

The role is also an equity-only based position with significant equity on offer depending on experience. It would also suit someone who already has a job and wants to build a start-up in their spare time, with a view to transitioning to a paid full-time role once the business is revenue generating.

  • Monitor market trends, customer needs, and technological advancements to capitalize on emerging opportunities.
  • Collaborate with cross-functional teams to drive commercialization initiatives and achieve revenue targets.
  1. Financial Management and Reporting:
  • Establish and maintain robust financial management systems, policies, and controls to ensure accuracy, transparency, and compliance.
  • Oversee financial operations, including budgeting, forecasting, cash flow management, and financial risk assessment.
  • Provide strategic financial advice and guidance to the executive team, supporting informed decision-making.
  • Produce regular financial reports, metrics, and key performance indicators (KPIs) to monitor the company’s financial health and progress.
  1. Exit and Sale Preparation:
  • Play a pivotal role in preparing Skribbl for potential exit and sale by collaborating closely with internal stakeholders and external advisors.
  • Evaluate exit strategies and develop financial models to maximize shareholder value.
  • Conduct due diligence processes, including financial analysis, valuation, and risk assessment.
  • Collaborate with legal, tax, and accounting teams to ensure compliance with regulatory requirements and optimize financial outcomes.

Qualifications & Characteristics

  • Bachelor’s degree in finance, accounting, business administration, or a related field. MBA or CFA qualification is highly desirable.
  • Proven track record of at least two years in senior finance leadership roles, preferably within high-growth startups or technology companies.
  • Demonstrated experience in successfully raising funds, managing investor relations, and negotiating financing agreements.
  • Strong commercial acumen with the ability to develop and execute business strategies that drive revenue growth and enhance profitability.
