Home of better-fitting menswear and an easier shopping experience

Bonobos is looking for a Controller who is pumped to work with people who get excited by paisley patterns and snazzy sign-offs.

As our Controller, you'll lead our accounting team in general accounting, revenue accounting, inventory controls, accounts payable, inter-company activity, tax reporting, cash management and treasury activities...just to name a few! We're growing rapidly and we need a Controller who can work closely with the CFO to establish, implement and maintain policies, procedures and internal controls and support varying business initiatives. You'll be responsible for driving timely and accurate reporting of the company financials to the Parent Company enabling deep understanding of company operating performance and partnering with finance to analyze/communicate actual vs. plan variances.

The fun doesn't stop there! In partnership with our Product and Finance teams, you'll also lead us through the continued implementation of an enterprise resource planning system. On top of the typical numbers stuff, we're looking for strong leadership and support to the controllership team and develop a collaborative culture focused on improving our operating process and investing in the individual development of the team.
