Chief Financial Officer

February 23, 2021
Houston, TX
Job Type


The CFO’s mission is to ensure that COMPANY’s operating activities are efficiently funded, and effectively measured, to generate the highest possible return given the parameters defined by the Board and CEO. The Chief Financial Officer is a senior executive of the company and, as such, will share overall responsibility for establishing the vision and managing the performance of the company. The CFO will have input into investments, purchasing, financing and other strategic decisions. 

COMPANY is headquartered in Orlando, Florida though the company is currently 100% remote due to COVID-19. Ideal candidates would be located in Orlando or be willing to relocate to the surrounding area some time in late 2021. COMPANY will likely never return to a traditional office structure with team members sitting at desks in an office every day of the work week. However, we would prefer the ability for executives to meet in person as needed in the future. Candidates must be very comfortable with a remote workforce, as all accounting personnel are currently 100% remote and living in different cities.

Due to this being a work-from-home opportunity it is posted in multiple locations, however, there is currently only one opening.
