VP of Finance at DISCO

| Austin
!Sorry, this job was removed at 1:57 p.m. (CST) on Friday, February 7, 2020

DISCO was initially developed at a litigation boutique in Houston. It was born in 2013 out of the firm’s frustration with conventional eDiscovery tools that were slow and difficult for lawyers to use. Instead of being forced to adapt our work methods to technology, we wanted to invent technology that works the way lawyers work. DISCO was the result, and today we are the fastest-growing legal technology solution in North America.

We are looking for an experienced Finance leader excited to play a key role in our growth by providing insightful financial analysis that drives our long-term operational and financial plans. This person will work directly with our CFO and a cross-functional leadership team to set strategy, develop and manage budgets and the long-term financial forecast, and drive initiatives.

  • You have excellent people and analytical skills; ability to partner cross-functionally with a dynamic leadership team
  • You have the ability to work in an ambiguous, fast-moving environment, while also driving toward clarity, efficiency, and results
  • You know how to balance agility with building systems and practices required for scale
  • You are comfortable and confident presenting data and recommending strategies to executives and board members

What You’ll Do
  • You’ll develop effective monthly, quarterly, and yearly financial operating plans driven by key and longer-term strategies in collaboration with the CFO and the leadership team 
  • You’ll build alignment, focus, and efficiency across all functions (e.g. Sales, Marketing, Product) via metrics that drive the financial plans; improve operational visibility and drive appropriate business actions; highlight trends and analyze causes of variance in actuals vs. forecast
  • You will measure and communicate the health of our B2B SaaS sales and marketing strategy, e.g. sales efficiency, conversion rates, COGS, churn, renewals, etc.
  • You’ll build deep and trusted partnerships with senior leaders across the organization to help optimize and strategize around investment decisions 
  • You’ll provide ongoing mentorship, training, and development of direct and indirect reports

  • You’ll continually improve processes and ensure consistencies, drive change as necessary, and elevate the level of reporting for the overall company, subsidiaries, and individual departments
  • You’ll support key decisions (e.g. prioritize new growth opportunities, magnitude, and timing of infrastructure investment) by leading the team to produce financial models for recommendations to senior management 
  • You’ll leverage and improve system implementation efforts for future scale, to increase productivity and accuracy of the FP&A team and support critical analyses to executive and business partners 
  • You’ll lead the annual budgeting process, including identifying key drivers and sources and levers of revenue growth, modeling scenarios, developing a realistic projection to support investor and Board expectations and working with the CFO, executives and leadership team to develop a robust budget which withstands rigorous testing

What makes someone successful on your team?

Success happens through our shared core values in our team: Winning Together, Continuous Improvement, and Always Positive. We display these values every day and during team meetings, we give examples of how we are living them out. “Always positive” resonates the most as it’s a constant reminder to find even the smallest positive in your day.

How do you make yourself accessible to the rest of the team?

I put real effort into staying close to my team. When I joined DISCO, I scheduled meetings with each team member and I meet with each new hire class. They know I have an open door policy and will support their growth at DISCO. I do weekly standups to share recognition and updates, as well as hold quarterly focus groups to gauge how we are doing.
