Position: Senior Controller, Head of Finance
FLSA STATUS: Exempt
POSITION TYPE: Full-Time
REPORTS TO: CEO
UPDATED: January 8, 2020
Smart City is a hyper-personalized, human-centered apartment locating service that saves renters time and money when searching for a new place to live. A unique lead generation system paired with our proprietary internal technology has created over 4300% growth in six years. Smart City has caused a major disruption in an antiquated apartment locating industry, all while being able to scale to a significant $19m in revenue with no outside funding. Even more impressive and unlike many startups in the real estate space, Smart City has continued to remain profitable during all high growth periods.
Smart City is looking for a talented Senior Controller to lead the day-to-day financial operations through the next phase of high growth.
Scope: Reporting to the CEO, the Controller will work closely with the leadership team to establish the company’s goals and strategies, and will be primarily responsible for financial execution. We need you to roll up your sleeves and get into the weeds, close the books for the foreseeable future, and directly manage the AR team. We need someone with an accounting background, and we are willing to speak with you if you are a strong VP/Controller who is ready to make a jump in your career and run the show. We do not have a complicated accounting system, nor do we have debt or investors currently, so we don’t need a highly technical accounting person. We need a strategic person who is extremely detailed and can handle the accounting aspects easily. Also looking for a real human and not a robot please.
This is both a tactical and a strategic position that will include implementing controls, systems, and processes to create order from chaos. With direct oversight of the finance team, the Controller will lead the month end close, the accounts receivable team and the accounts payable activities of the company. The Controller will also oversee budgets, ensure resources are properly allocated, and oversee financial operations for the entire company. You will be responsible for creating a workplace that embodies company core values, especially personal and professional growth, and ensures that departments meet individual goals. This is a critical position directly responsible for ensuring day-to-day operations can continue to be financed by new business.
Opportunity to advance into a CFO position within 18 months.
You will be the head of finance, so you have to have full accountability, be a total badass, and know the numbers inside and out.
Here’s what our company believes in:
Our team is extremely important to us and we’re excited to have been recognized as one of Dallas Business Journal’s ‘2019 Best Places to Work’.
