Posted on February 22, 2024

We’re looking for someone exceptional to join the core team at Curious as our Finance Lead. 

The Finance Lead is a critical role for us, owning two core areas, the diligence and underwriting process for business that we look to acquire, and the functional controller and financial allocation work at the head office and portfolio company level. We’re looking for someone who has CFA or CPA credentials, but who is looking for a more dynamic and challenging environment. 

Core responsibilities include:

  • Develop and optimize financial underwriting models to better understand and evaluate potential acquisition targets

  • Create and lead a repeatable financial diligence process for companies we’re in diligence on

  • Work as a functional financial controller at head office and for our first few portfolio companies to solidify our forecasting and reporting process

  • Assist portfolio CEOs in strategic finance work to help them better manage their business

  • Develop thought leadership and research pieces that we believe the community would benefit from

Who We’re Looking For

Our ideal candidate has hands-on experience in a finance role in a startup environment—this is a non-negotiable requirement. We expect this individual to be self-driven, self-motivated, and capable of charting their own path.

We don’t care where you went to school and don’t require any advanced degree beyond an undergraduate degree. The role is remote, ideally located in the US or Canada and will be on a contract basis to start.

Our Values

  • Decades, not Days: We’re long-term minded. That is apparent in everything we do — the companies we choose to operate, the way we treat people, the decisions we make, the way we show up. Our word is our bond and legacy is our guide. 

  • Fully Autonomous: We are built with people that are great at what they do. Curious is a place that allows them to fully realize that potential. We believe in our individual expertise and operate with earned trust as a core belief.

  • Relentlessly Curious: This is a place for the intellectually curious. The people that aren’t satisfied with good enough. We love the work we do, we think creatively, and question the status quo. The way it’s been done isn’t necessarily the way it needs to be done.

  • Simply Transparent: We operate with radical honesty and don’t overcomplicate. We believe in turning on the lights to expose the facts and distilling down complicated things to simple actions. Bureaucracy kills and movement is our version of perfection.

  • Mountain Climbers: We seek out adversity and lean into challenging situations. We care more about the quality of a person than their pedigree. We're underdogs. We love the journey more than the destination and constantly seek new mountains to climb.

  • Once Curious, Always Curious: Our people make us, both at head office and at our portfolio companies. We know that. Every person that joins us is always part of the Curious family, while they're here, and more importantly, long after.
