At Elastic, we have a simple goal: to solve the world's data problems with products that delight and inspire. As the company behind the popular open source projects — Elasticsearch, Kibana, Logstash, and Beats — we help people around the world do great things with their data. From stock quotes to real time Twitter streams, Apache logs to WordPress blogs, our products are extending what's possible with data, delivering on the promise that good things come from connecting the dots. The Elastic family unites employees across 30+ countries into one coherent team, while the broader community spans across over 100 countries.

The FP&A team is seeking a Finance Manager to join a small, but mighty FP&A team and be a strategic business partner for our G&A business. You will report into our Senior Finance Manager, jointly supporting G&A.

This is a distributed role working from home or your local coworking space if you do not live by an Elastic-affiliated workplace. We are targeting the USA or Canada.

What You Will Be Doing:

You will help to ensure our growing G&A team is making informed decisions about cost forecasting, how to staff, and help grow our business.

You will collaborate with various leaders across G&A, your FP&A teammates, recruiting, HR, accounting, and more to get data, determine data accuracy now and in the future, navigate the shifts inherent in a high-growth company, and create data models and insights for discussion.

You will also take part in corporate consolidation.

In addition, you will:

  • Help with cost management
  • Create and improve processes as our business scales rapidly
  • Collaborate with your FP&A teammates in overarching business intelligence
  • Create ad hoc reporting needs for various company stakeholders
What You Bring Along:

You have prior professional experience in FP&A at either a software company or a high-growth tech company and part of your FP&A experience is with business partnering.

You have a high proficiency in Excel/Google sheets and a knack for data modeling.

You bring a passion to build on your experience and apply to a fast-paced, high-growth, global environment.

If that's you, hopefully you also have:

  • Degree in Finance, Accounting, or Business
  • Experience with Netsuite, Concur, and Adaptive (if not, you can learn!)
  • Remarkable analytical skills
  • Client partnership or management experience
  • The ability to simplify complex information
  • Strong English communication skills, both verbal and written
  • Strong attention-to-detail
  • Dedicated problem solving skills
  • Presentation abilities and the desire to grow these
  • Ability to work independently in a distributed, dynamic, fast-paced environment

  • Equity
  • Global minimum of 16 weeks parental leave (moms & dads)
  • Generous vacation time and one week of volunteer time off
  • An environment in which you can balance great work with a great life
  • Your age is only a number. It doesn't matter if you're just out of college or your children are; we need you for what you can do.
  • Distributed-first company with Elasticians in over 30 countries, spread across 18 time zones, and speaking over 30 languages!
