Director, Finance United States
Aha! is a different kind of high-growth SaaS company. We are the world's #1 roadmap software and help people achieve their best. Over 5,000 enterprises and 500,000 product, innovation, and engineering leaders trust our software to build lovable products and be happy doing it. We are self-funded, highly profitable, always distributed, and have no sales team. Being an always-remote company means we can hire intrinsically motivated people who love to learn, support their teammates, and want to work from where they are happiest.
Aha! finance is a growing, fully remote team that is highly productive. We work within North American time zones so we can collaborate during the workday.
We continually improve: We are always working to improve our processes and do exceptional work.
We are forward-looking: We stay on top of new accounting and tax requirements and are continually adapting to change.
We move fast: We respond to requests internally and with customers as quickly as we can. Because when we do, we have the best chance of creating the most value for everyone.
We collaborate: We each have unique experiences and skills and work closely together.
We have fun: We care deeply about our teammates, always making time to celebrate, support, and laugh with each other.
The finance team is responsible for a variety of day-to-day tasks and larger initiatives. As a small team, we all have the opportunity to work on meaningful projects and we love to help each other learn and grow. We also directly support our customers with billing and tax-related questions.
Aha! is growing quickly, which means our team is always adapting. We keep up with ever-changing regulations and are continually establishing new and better processes to ensure long-term success. We do our planning and collaboration in Aha! Roadmaps. We stay meaningfully connected with the use of Slack and video calls. (Email? Rarely.)
