Chief Financial Officer (CFO)

New York, United States


ioby seeks an experienced finance professional to join our team as our CFO.

For the right candidate this is an exciting opportunity to have a transformative impact at a quickly growing nonprofit startup by building increased financial capacity at the organization, informing and supporting our strategic direction through finance expertise, and ensuring a foundation for continued growth of the organization for the next several years. This is also a critical hire in the growth of the organization’s leadership.

In the world of nonprofits, ioby’s finances are unique for two reasons: 1) we manage a complex online crowd-resourcing platform, processing thousands of small donations a month to hundreds of separate projects each year; 2) we are pursuing increased financial self-sustainability through an earned income model based on high volumes of transactions and continuously scaling our services.

The role will involve a significant amount of systems upgrading and systems building, as well as maintenance of those systems. We are looking for a candidate who is comfortable leading this transition by rolling up your sleeves and getting your hands dirty to solve problems in a startup environment. Reporting to the COO, this team member will be supported in the finance function by our Operations Director and our outsourced bookkeepers.
