in Sydney, Australia

About the Role

In this role, you will be part of the Eats Strategic Finance team for Australia and New Zealand. You will be partnering across Sales, Operations, Strategy & Planning, APAC/Global Finance & Accounting, and other cross-functional stakeholders to budget, forecast, optimize, and track our financial and operational goals.

If you're ready to go deep working on a rewarding set of challenges and if you've got the finance & excel skills, passion, professional commitment and a strong team mentality - read on and get in touch!

What You'll Do:

  • Financial planning and analysis: work closely with the finance organization and with regional business leaders to develop financial forecasts and operational goals, apply business judgement and financial insights to help with decision making
  • Sophisticated financial modeling: build models from scratch, improve existing models, and capture complex business reality/dynamics and interactions into comprehensive models and leverage those to assess trade-offs, propose solutions and drive better decision making
  • Think strategically and execute: the models we build aid in decision making and strategy - we operationalize our insights and support daily execution. This is not a backwards looking role - we are responsible for helping the business make decisions, put our foot in the ground, and run at it
  • Monthly close: report and analyze variances between actuals, forecast, and plan - use insights to iterate on forecasts and create/discuss potential action plans with cross-functional stakeholders
  • Process improvement: help improve our planning processes and ensure finance best practices spread through the organization. Work closely with the business to develop better ways to capture and validate assumptions to forecast a rapidly evolving business. We are always looking to reduce, reuse, recycle, and automate where possible to free up valuable time for tackling the next problem.
  • Innovate: we will push the boundaries beyond traditional forecasting. Be creative, adaptive, and eager to learn new technical skill sets in finance and data & analytics using spreadsheets, SQL, and Python.
  • Special projects: new initiatives always come up, you will have the chance to contribute beyond regular modeling

What You'll Need:

  • BS/BA in Engineering, Finance, Business, Economics highly preferred
  • Minimum of 3 years in Investment Banking, Corporate finance, Corporate Development/M&A, operational FP&A or Chief of Staff role at either a high-growth company or a large, well-established organization
  • Strong Financial Modeling skills: best practices are second-nature, your models are efficient, scalable and intuitive
  • Excellent communication and people skills: numbers are key, but a business is built with people
  • Self-starter: You will take initiative, be dedicated, set and drive toward goals
  • Attention to detail: consistent with swift and high quality execution. We need to do things quickly and we need to do them well. Striking that balance can be challenging and this should be a strength of yours.
  • Passion for finance, financial modeling, or coding
  • Systems: working knowledge of enterprise-level financial planning systems such as IBM Cognos TM1
  • Working knowledge of US GAAP
  • SQL & python skills: the ability to self-serve, investigate and get the data we require will make you much more effective in this role
  • Visual analytics/business intelligence experience: Tableau, Qlikview, or Power BI dash boarding experience
