Head of Finance
We are a rapidly growing ecommerce shoe company committed to revolutionizing
health and wellness by incorporating natural movement into everything we do. Xero
Shoes, based in Broomfield, CO is ready for our first head of finance. Reporting to the
President, you will be an active member of the senior leadership team and a player-
coach for all finance-related activities for the Company. As part of a small, tight-knit
team you will work closely with your key partners in sales, marketing, and operations to
provide critical planning, accounting, financial operations, and decision support to
facilitate Xero’s continued accelerated growth.
Areas of Accountability:
• All financial functions, including accounting, financial planning and analysis,
external/internal reporting, compliance, cash management, tax, audit, and
financial operations (payroll, AR/AP, financial systems, etc.).
• Review processes and internal controls to drive efficiencies across the
organization, understand profitability, execute operational KPIs, and provide
commercial and operating insights.
• Manage procurement, including contract negotiations and administration.
• Lead a small team, meeting the need for more mature internal controls and
compliance without stifling our entrepreneurial culture.
• Work as part of the senior leadership team to build and execute against company
strategy and objectives, including international expansion.
• Act as a collaborative partner with the investors and board of directors.
• Effectively partner with banks, capital market providers, and outside service
providers (such as audit firms).
You have a reputation as a great colleague, someone who can leverage your business
knowledge, tech savviness, financial expertise, and critical thinking to ensure timely and
accurate results and positively drive business results. Other important qualities include
being highly detailed, self-motivated, analytical, curious, collaborative, transparent,
pragmatic, high integrity, and operate with a low tolerance for BS.
You have at least 7 years’ relevant experience building and scaling a finance team in a
high growth early-stage company or leading a team of finance professionals at a
company or divisional level. Prior experience in a VC/PE environment is helpful as you
will be the primary conduit for investor relations, working closely with our new sponsor,
the TZP Group. A BS in Accounting/Finance or related and an MBA and/or CPA
preferred. This position is local and not eligible for remote work (exclusive of COVID
accommodations) or relocation.
