What you'll do


You’ll have responsibility for a wide range of tasks across the finance function, including:

  • Accounts Payable and Receivable.
  • Processing payroll in a timely and efficient manner, liaising with our provider (ADP), and being the point person for any queries from US employees.

  • The first point of contact via phone and email for general enquiries.
  • Providing administrative and logistical support to the business, e.g. coordinating with Marketing on events preparation.

About you

  • High resilience and adaptability, able to multitask and prioritise high workload effectively in a challenging and fast-paced environment.
  • A bias for action, with demonstrable experience proactively taking initiative to improve systems and processes

Working Details

This is a full-time role (37.5 hours per week).

This is a remote position in the US, with a preference for someone in the New Jersey tri-state area. The role will require some in-person logistical support which may require some travel.

Join the team!

Equality of opportunity is more than just a responsibility: we believe it’s a huge advantage to welcome a variety of experiences and perspectives into the team. Diversity is a great asset and, as such, we strongly encourage applications from any background.

This is your opportunity to really influence how we get things done, and how our US company grows. We're doing well, but there's lots more to do in order to maintain the high bar and pace that we've set.

Everyone here is growing personally as the company grow, so if that sounds like something you’d like to be part of, we’d love to see your application.
