Job Description

About Us:  
We are a payments infrastructure platform that gives businesses a better way to own, manage, and monetize their entire payments experience without the headaches or expenses associated with building an in-house system from scratch. Payments are the lifeblood of every business, and it is critical to a company’s revenue growth and stand-out customer experience that companies get the underlying technology right. 
We are a fast-growing fintech startup recently named to the Forbes Fintech 50 and closed our Series B funding in February 2020. Our primary focus is people, and a core element of every Finix employee is a desire to be challenged. As we continue growing, we are actively looking for payments people of all kinds to join our team. If you’ve made it this far, that might be you!
We have offices in San Francisco, Santa Clara, and Cincinnati.
About The Role: 
Finix is a passionate group of people who want to help our customers grow and succeed through payment technology. Finix’s mission is to drive the success of software companies by giving them an easy way to accept payments on their platforms — for example, by allowing a company that serves yoga studios to more easily allow their customers to sell products and services directly to their end users. Finix allows companies like MindBody to make more than 50% of their entire revenue from payments, and helps these companies manage this payment flow through high-quality, workflow-driven user interfaces.
In this role, you’ll champion our vision to make every software company a payments company by leading, building, and growing a top-notch team of finance and accounting professionals, and by developing strong cross-functional relationships across Finix. Most of all, what you build will set the foundation for the department’s future, and turn finance and accounting from a traditional cost center into a strategic decision-making center.
