BuzzFeed is hiring a

Finance Manager

Los Angeles, United States

The Role:

BuzzFeed seeks a Finance Manager to support the FP&A functions of the business, while managing a close-knit team of financial analysts.

As Finance Manager, you'll be involved in typical responsibilities like forecasting, budgeting, revenue and cost analysis, and reviewing BuzzFeed's financial performance and KPIs.

Beyond the usual FP&A needs, this is an ideal position for someone who has already gained deep analytical experience in a large corporate finance department and now seeks to apply those skills to a fast-growing entrepreneurial company. As our revenue streams continue to evolve and our business continues to grow in new and exciting directions, you're excited to tackle challenging analytical assignments.

The Team:

Our Finance Team sits across our NYC and LA offices. Both locations share a deep sense of curiosity, an appreciation of how strong financial disciplines create long-term business value, and a love of pivot tables (ok, maybe "love" isn't quite the right word...)

This position is based in our Hollywood campus, where you will report to our Senior Finance Manager and directly manage a small team. If you've ever dreamed of heading west, we are also open to starting the right candidate in New York City before relocating to LA after a few months of training.

You Will:

  • Assist company leaders in the formulation of overall strategic direction and work with the Senior Finance Manager and VP of Finance to develop insightful analyses for executives
  • Manage the preparation of budgets and forecasting, reporting key variances to company leaders
  • Provide and interpret financial information and reports
  • Meet with cross-functional department leaders to develop and update budgets
  • Analyze key business drivers, the current competitive landscape, and industry trends and operating metrics

You Have:

  • A B.S. degree in Finance or related field (and CFA/CPA qualification are considered a plus)
  • 5+ years of experience at a Big 4 accounting firm, investment banking firm, management consulting firm, or in a corporation’s finance department (ideally in the media/tech space)
  • Mastery of Microsoft Excel (you dream of vlookups)
  • An appreciation that, in Finance especially, deadlines matter.
