San Francisco, CA
Mid-level · Full time
Posted a year ago

About Us:
At Parafin, our mission is to grow small businesses. Small businesses are the backbone of our economy, yet banks do not have their back. Parafin is a technology company that builds infrastructure which enables small businesses to get easy access to financial services via platforms they sell on.

Parafin's first product offers capital-as-a-service for online platforms. Parafin currently powers the capital programs of platforms ranging from Series B to post IPO companies.

We are a tight knit team of engineers and designers, coming from organizations such as Robinhood, Affirm, CapitalOne, Uber and CERN, excited both about helping hundreds of thousands of small businesses grow and thrive, and building products that leaders at top companies have started to use every day.

We are backed by prominent venture capitalists such as Ribbit Capital, Thrive Capital, Index Ventures, Green Oaks Capital and SV Angel.

About the Position:
We are looking for a Business Operations and Strategy Lead to help Parafin prioritize, evaluate, and execute strategic decisions that are rooted in data. You will be responsible for identifying, defining, and executing high-impact operational and strategic initiatives across Parafin. At Parafin, Business Operations is a dynamic team that works cross-functionally to accelerate Parafin's growth, design organizational processes that scale, and expand the company's opportunity space through new products and markets.

Are you a mission-driven, analytical, and collaborative thinker? If so, come join us!

What You Will Be Doing:

  • Identify, define, and execute high-impact operational and strategic initiatives across Parafin
  • Apply business analytics and insights to support the decision-making processes for some of the most pivotal decisions facing the business
  • Perform ad hoc analyses related to partner acquisition, cohort patterns, unit economics, operations, new markets, and more
  • Take company functions from 0 - 1 as we build a next generation fintech from scratch at Parafin
  • Do what needs to get done to help Parafin create value for our small business and platform customers

What We're Searching For:

  • Three or more years in management consulting, operations, strategic finance, private equity, or a similar role at a technology company
  • Strong fluency in (or desire to learn) data analysis skills and tools, such as SQL / R / Python
  • Experience building and rolling out new processes from scratch
  • Superb communication skills (writing, data, oral)
  • Proven ability to work and thrive in productively chaotic environments
  • Strong communicator with data visuals and words
  • Ruthless prioritizer; a creative and analytical thinker
  • T-shaped skills -- equally comfortable diving deep into financial minutiae and analyses, and zooming out to frame a high-level narrative

We Prefer If You Have:

  • Experience working in fintech
  • Prior startup experience

What We Offer:

  • Competitive salary & equity grants
  • Medical, dental & vision insurance
  • Unlimited PTO & work from home flexibility
  • Commuter benefits
  • Free lunches

If you require reasonable accommodation in completing this application, interviewing, completing any pre-employment testing, or otherwise participating in the employee selection process, please contact us.
