Strategic Finance Lead

Posted Jul 8

TRM is on a mission to build a safer financial system for billions of people. We deliver a blockchain intelligence data platform to financial institutions, crypto companies, and governments to fight cryptocurrency fraud and financial crime. We consider our business — and our profit — as a way to move towards our mission sustainably and at scale. 

Team & Job Summary:

The Strategic Finance team at TRM is dedicated to addressing some of the company's most critical business challenges. This team is in charge of managing the company's budget, driving quarterly and annual planning processes, efficiently allocating and deploying the company's resources, conducting financial analyses in collaboration with all departments across the company, owning financial planning systems, and playing a crucial role in investor relations and treasury.

Reporting to the VP of Finance, this role will have a strong focus on FP&A but will have exposure to all aspects of Strategic Finance. The role requires someone who is highly analytical and strategic, an excellent communicator, approaches problems in a structured manner, and is comfortable with ambiguity. You’ll have substantial exposure to senior leadership, focus on the highest-priority business issues, and be plugged into every facet of the business. You will join TRM as a player-coach with a small team supporting you, and will develop over time the team, processes, and systems that will allow the company to continue to scale in a financially sound way for years to come.

The impact you will have here:

  • As the Strategic Finance lead, you and your team will own our company model and lead our consolidated strategic and financial planning processes
  • Serve as a thought partner to cross-functional stakeholders and ensure they have the necessary resource allocations to invest in key investments/initiatives
  • Drive alignment on KPIs and key metrics to track team-specific and company-wide trends, growth initiatives, business performance, and provide visibility into operating performance
  • Understand and analyze the levers that drive TRM’s long-term financial trajectory
  • Implement a best-in-class planning system that will scale
  • Partner with the accounting team to make sure forecasts are aligned with historical financials
  • Play a leadership role in fundraising, M&A, Board of Directors communications, and investor relations
  • Establish, manage, and grow the team that will support the executive team in understanding the financial implications of strategic decisions (resource investments, spend allocation, business planning, etc.)

What we’re looking for:

  • Expert financial modeling experience with strong attention to detail
  • Ability to quickly identify and methodically resolve potential road-blocks
  • Rigorous analytical thinking and strong problem-solving skills
  • Excellent presentation and writing skills and the ability to clearly communicate messages that link business issues, financial results, and strategy at the executive level
  • Strong track record of building successful cross-functional partnerships
  • 5+ years of relevant experience in investment banking, private equity, FP&A, strategic finance, or related fields — preferably for a B2B and/or SaaS business.
  • Prior experience leading annual / semi-annual planning cycles, managing high-performing FP&A teams, and evolving FP&A processes is a major plus
  • Degree in Finance, Accounting, Economics or Business Administration preferred
  • A desire to join a growing tech company, move fast, and make critical contributions to the success of the company
