CloudFactory is looking for a Financial Analyst to join us in our mission of connecting one million people to meaningful work. The primary responsibility of this role is to be a business partner to the Sales and Marketing team, providing high-confidence financial reporting, forecasting, and operational metrics to help tell the story of the business through the numbers.


  • Collaborate with the Finance Director on developing and maintaining the companywide revenue forecast model.
  • Track KPIs for Go-to-Market team and update regular reports for Executive Team.
  • Support Account Executives and Client Success Managers with pricing and margin analysis for new deals/ expansion opportunities.
  • Send out monthly budget-to-actuals financial reports to department managers and own variance analysis and updating forecast/ accruals.
  • Calculate monthly commissions for Sales and Client Success teams.
  • Conduct ad hoc financial analysis deep-dives on various aspects of the business.


  • Excel/ Google Sheets Jedi.
  • Must have experience using one or more of the following tools (or their equivalents): NetSuite, Adaptive Planning,, Xactly. Experience administering/ implementing a plus.
  • Experience with business intelligence software like PowerBI, Looker or Tableau a plus.


Ideal candidates likely identify with the following:

  • I have strong feelings about the merits of Excel versus Google Sheets and have vigorously defended my views in multiple debates with the unenlightened.
  • People at work regularly come to me with their spreadsheet questions and think I have mystical powers because I know how to use CONCATENATE in a VLOOKUP formula.
  • I sometimes have to remind myself not to judge people when they don’t right-justify their numbers in spreadsheets or use random colors “to make it look pretty”.
  • I have built a revenue forecast that showed 100% year-over-year growth and walked the VP of Sales through it without them running out of the room screaming.
  • I’ve had existential debates with myself at midnight about why I’m updating the same spreadsheet manually for the third quarter in a row and then gone to my boss in the morning to pitch a plan on how we can automate it so I can focus on higher value-add activities.
  • I have at times wondered if MRR stands for “moderately random revenue”.
  • I have been tasked with building a financial model to support a business decision and wound up using my analysis to persuade the team to NOT do the project.
  • My heart rate accelerates whenever I’m sending an email with confidential salary info and I always triple-check the “To” line.
  • Salespeople have told me that I’m “the nicest finance person they’ve ever worked with” and I’m not sure if that’s a good thing or a bad thing.

The Perks:

  • Be part of an awesome start-up community in a cool town
  • Competitive Compensation
  • Free lunches on Fridays!
  • Community service opportunities
  • Startup company culture
  • A mission you can stand by!
  • Room for growth! We prefer to promote from within than hire from without

  • 401(k) retirement savings plan
