ABOUT THE POSITION
EDGE Funders Alliance is seeking a full-time Director of Finance and Operations to work with our small, decentralized, global team to strengthen the organizational infrastructure and ensure that it will support greater effectiveness and sustainable growth. EDGE has been in an organizational strengthening process, aided by consultants, that will provide the groundwork for this role to build from.
This is an ideal role for an entrepreneurial leader with considerable experience building the necessary financial, administrative, and human resource systems, protocols, and policies for an expanding, global organization. The Director will have the ability and desire to work at the big-picture level while also attending to the daily details of the organizational finance and operations needs, such as managing budgets, negotiating contracts, and paying bills.
We are open to candidates based worldwide, though the Director must be comfortable working remotely and with colleagues located across multiple time zones since most of our members are based in the United States and Europe. This role does not have a direct report currently, but is responsible for supervising the work of consultants and vendors, such as our accountant. We are looking for a highly organized and motivated professional who shares our values and is committed to serving a minimum of two years in this position to lay the foundation for our growth.
$90,000-100,000 at FTE with benefits
