VP of Finance

| Greater Boston Area | Remote
Overview
Indico is a venture-backed startup making the application of deep learning practical in the enterprise. Our focus is on helping to automate tedious back-office tasks, and improve the efficiency of labor-intensive document-based workflows. The fundamental branch of technology we use to achieve this is known as transfer learning, which allows us to train machine learning models with orders of magnitude less data than is required by traditional techniques, with a strong emphasis on NLP and text processing. Indico currently serves Fortune 1000 organizations in Financial Services and Insurance.
About the Position
After closing a Series B in December 2020, the company is looking for a VP of Finances to consolidate and own Indico’s finance function.

About You
You understand and thrive in an environment where ruthless prioritization and organization are critical in order to manage a venture-backed start-up’s growing finance needs. You are a stickler for keeping accurate records as well as following processes. You are frugal and seek out creative solutions rather than throwing money at the problem. You are detail-oriented but quick in making decisions and taking action after you have the necessary data. You're invested in having a life outside of work that is bolstered by a fulfilling job, not dominated by it. You look out for others and it shows in your willingness to sit down and hear out whatever needs or feedback other team members have in order to foster constructive conversation and reach the best resolution. With all that in mind, you work hard and have fun with it!
