You will be based out of our NY office with the requirement to be able to be in the office 1-3 days a week as needed (can be fully remote until July 2021) and requires limited international travel (1 or 2 times a year).

You will report into our VP of Finance, and collaborate with the rest of the People team and hiring managers. Over time you will report to our VP People as this role is filled. 

The Ideal Candidate has:
